Mystery Adventure "P" 2008

Yesterday, I returned from a mystery
A twelve hour journey to Pawnee City
Surprises in store, what could they be?
Each one a secret, for us to wait and see

First stop, a miniature toy collection
450 pedal cars, what an inspiration
Farm tractors, wagons, and the like
From big bicycles to smallest trike

Next, we stopped by an Amish farm
Family of five, baby in Mom's arms
He is a wood cabinet maker by trade
Baked goods were for sale she had made

Then to a quilt shop, used to be a church
Music in the background, an added touch
Some quilts had spiritual themes displayed
A visible witness and testimony portrayed

Lunch was served in the Methodist church
Viewing their new kitchen, an extra touch
Given by donated funds, in loving memory
Next month, they have 150 year anniversary

Next, a 20 building museum, history galore
1867 family home of our state's first governor
1600 salt and pepper sets, 800 pieces barbed wire
So much more, anything to suit your heart's desire

Then to a wine tasting brewery, I had root beer
It was refreshing and quenched my thirst there
Next, we listened to a buffalo herd rancher speak
He has 80 heads, also the mail carrier each week

We saw part of a silent movie by Harold Lloyd
There was not time to see the ending, oh boy!
Still climbing a building, problems to the top
Pigeons, netted rope, hanging from the clock

Dinner was served at a convent bed and breakfast
It was a very delicious buffet meal to say the least
An hour and a half later, we arrived to get in our cars
Some stayed overnight, with more of a journey by far
