I wake up a little stiff and immediately decide to stay another night. After lots of lounging I take a walk to check on the boat and stretch out my back.
I also go to the Museum of Muscatine Industry. The Industry was buttons. Pearl buttons. They were made from mussel shells which once flourished along this stretch of river. A nice woman gave me a personal tour. I did not know any of this.
Back at the hotel for ice and rest. Then to the popular bar down the street for food and beer and a couple of minutes of live music.
I’m back in bed by 8:30 and I talk to my wife about maybe ending this thing if it doesn’t get better. If not maybe St Louis.
