It started raining and did not stop for a whole week. All news were about flood in Missouri, I was listening ithem from the Old Bus Stop Coffee Shop and Gallery in … Missouri.
Flood ahead and flood behind – I spent one week in St Clair. One week of soap movie about local life: one person comes in,tells something, comes out. The door closes and opens again in a few seconds – another one person comes in, tells something, comes out.
They help me with everything – driving me around, laundering, printing, phoning friends and newspapers.
Max, the owner, – colorful lady, a lot to talk about, so much energy and plans in her … not sure if I should provide her age. I slept and eat in the gallery. Vicky – finally I met former drag racer, again a lot to talk about. She drove me to Meramec Caverns, organised special entrance and zip line tour. And she with her husband found for me prison TV – ultralight monitor which I could not find from “normal” brands in normal shops – the next story.
