Restroom Signs at Dixie Quicks
Looking downtown from the Museum; Inside the Railway Station
Hast ever been in Omaha,
Where rolls the dark Missouri down,
And four strong horses scarce can draw
An empty wagon through the town?
...Where whisky shops the livelong night
Are vending out their poison juice;
Where men are often very tight,
And women deemed a trifle loose?
Where taverns have an anxious guest
For every corner, shelf and crack;
With half the people going west,
And all the others going back?
...If not, take heed to what I say:
You'll find it just as I have found it;
And if it lies upon your way,
For God's sake, reader, go around it!
John G. Saxe, Harper's Magazine, September1869
The rest of the afternoon was spent doing some shopping before we met Christine for appetizers and visiting. We were going to get sushi for dinner, but were having such a lovely time visiting that the restaurant would have closed before we could get there. So we had some delectable Mexican food - so much so that we're all suffering from the after-effects of fighting off the food comas. It was that good. Time is going by so quickly... yet another wonderful, lovely day of visiting is complete.
