This was taken in a hotel in Sycamore, Illinois. The vending machine was in the same room as the washer and dryer for the hotel, and in addition it was not air conditioned. Needless to say, the chocolate was rather droopy.

There was a steam and old tractor show going on in Sycamore when we went to my niece's wedding. It was too hot and sticky to go to the show, but I saw this old tractor in the hotel parking lot.

Pictures of an exterminator's building painted with bugs (3 pictures)

Liz and I were in Niagara Falls, and we wanted to go to the Lion Country Safari. Unfortunately, I entered Safari Niagara, which is a kids zoo, instead of a drive through safari experience. Along the way in Stevensville Ontario, we saw this exterminator whose office had all sorts of wildlife painted on it.
