Some of you might remember when I used to write about how negative things actually worked out for good. Well, one time I was going back down to Kansas but when I got to the Mississippi River the bridge was out and there was a detour. This was definitely an inconvenience, even though I wasn’t really pressed for time. I did the only thing I could do- I followed the detour, which proved to be a real delight. I got to get a close look at the Riverwalk in Davenport and got to see the big statue of Bix Beiderbecke in the park. It was a most enjoyable drive. This is a very cool part of town that I would not have seen if I was just passing through on 70.
