What's Weird Upriver

.
Labinnah Restaurant, Hannibal

Greetings from Hannibal, Missouri, a town that makes its living from a long-dead American author, Mr. Clemens. It's late, so just a quick note. We had dinner at a place highly rated on the travel web sites, called Labinnah. What could that mean? It's Hannibal spelled backwards! Har! The food was very good, the people were nice and the decor was, um, eclectic. This small statue was on a window sill. Can't be Hercules with that hairdo and briefs. Sort of looks like a cross between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mitt Romney. But then I bet the original Hannibal was pretty strong, too, leading all those elephants across the Alps.

Downtown St. Louis 365 will have to wait until the morning.

If I were in a restaurant and someone told me that a statue in the restaurant looked like a combination of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mitt Romney, I think I would lose my appetite.

I didn't know that Hannibal won a Mr. Universe title.

You got pretty darn close to my home town of Quincy Illinois. It's just a few minutes drive up river from Hannibal. We used to drive to Hannibal quite often on those family Sunday drives.

Looks like a fun trip. This guy looks like he was carved out of butter. You sure it wasn't for your dinner rolls?
