...bad coffee, and that is what happened when I went to Litchfield, Illinois today. They don't have many coffee shops around here, but this one had ESPRESSO on the outside, and that sounds like a place to buy a good cup of coffee. No dice. It was weak, and I would have rather had water. True coffee shops ought to have three strengths of coffee--strong, stronger, and strongest.
There wasn't much as far a shopping at Litchfield. Like West Texas, the jobs are going to the big cities and over seas. This used to be a big shoe factory. Thank goodness they are turning it into an apartment building; they are about 30 miles out of St. Louis, and there are people who live there and drive to St. Louis to work.
This was the prettiest building downtown, a flower shop that looked like it belonged in San Francisco.
There were some breathtaking houses at Litchfield. This is just one example.
Last of all--anyone interested in recycling their old jeans? This looks pretty shabby, but it really did look cute on. You can do it for less than the price tag of $90.
