What's Eating Gilbert Grape with Johnny Depp

On Sunday,6/7/09,Maree and I left Indianapolis to "cruise" the back roads to Dwight,IL for our projected link up with the other two cars on Monday.Our intent(no pun intended)was to sleep in the teardrop for the first time along with pitching our companion tent for the "actual"first time.The weather forecast was very unfavorable so we bagged that idea.We had one unique mishap when the passenger window fell into the interior body of the door.We pulled under a drive through lane at a bank,and I spent an hour fixing said window.I think Maree was shocked that I actually knew what I was doing.The Title to this Posting resulted from a chance encounter with a farm on IL HWY 47 in the pictures in the prior posting.In the movie "What's Eating Gilbert Grape"the yellow farmhouse reminds me of Johnny Depp's character's home.The photographic majesty of this abandoned homestead was a delight for us.Listening to CD's,cruising along with the windows down,relishing the beauty of newly planted fields of corn,wheat,soybeans;what could be better? AMERICA,LAND OF OPPORTUNITY!
