192/365 – 2010

* it’s a bird… it’s a plane… it’s Superman! *

On the road & headed for home, we made a quick pit stop in the city of Metropolis, Illinois to see the Man of Steel (well, in this case, fiberglass but let’s not get bogged down in details). For you GA locals, Metropolis is about the size of old town Woodstock – not big at all. I’m sure there are other cities named the same but this is the “official” one and smack dab in the middle of town is their claim to fame: a giant Superman statue. There’s also a little store with all kinds of Superman paraphernalia for tourists gullible enough to buy it. Oh wait, that’d be me – I was one of those tourists & bought a hat several years ago. C’mon, how often do you get a chance to visit Clark Kent’s hometown? I just had to have a memento. It’s worth a drive-by if you’re ever in southern IL.
