Gram, Mom, Emmie, Sam, and I went out to eat at 'Coe Creek Cafe' in Elliot, Iowa. They have excellent food! I highly recommend them! Very big servings and the food tastes very good. I got a Club sandwich with fries.

All done! It got huge!
This was an interesting story...
"A Mr. Dalton, a baker, of Baston, in Lincolnshire, on Monday last, won a wager of 50l. by carrying, at different times, 500 sacks of flour, 20 yards, each of which weighed 20 stone. He performed it in the course of seven hours and twenty-five minutes, though the time allowed was twelve hours."

Twenty stone weighs 280#. So he carried approximately 70 tons of flour and walked about five miles.

Waiting to be let back into the barn...
