09 Countryside and A Cajun

When you come cycling in Missouri we recommend you ride Highway 43 out of Joplin. Flat, fast and the kind of countryside you should expect here. We stopped for a cold drink at a place called Cajun’s Tire Service. The owner, Steve, ¬†that locals call Cajun, is an interesting guy. We met his youngest son who he blames for the move from Florida to this rural area. Seems the street in front of their house was busy and most drivers just blew through the stop sign. After an almost violent confrontaton they headed Missouri. We talked about music, of course. I sent him a copy of our band playing “Guitar Lady”.
