We went out to eat with Gene and Yvonne to a Polish restaurant. Phil and I shared the Polish sampler. Lots of good food.
On the road again Sunday Feb. 1
We Joined Gene, Yvonne, Nicole and Lander (Nicole's boy friend) at IHOP. Then Gene, Phil and I saw the movie "American Sniper." It was very good. Gene and Phil went to a friend's Super Bowl Party. Yvonne and I stayed home. I watched the second half of the game. We feel sad for our Seattle family. They are just crushed like we were 2 weeks ago when the Packers lost. Tait has been in AZ covering the Seahawks for NBC. He's a videographer for KING TV.
On the road again Monday Feb. 2. We had to stop at the grocery store and restock out refrigerator, freezer and cupboards. They were getting bare.
ulphur is named for the sulfur mines, which were excavated in the area in the 1900s. In this area, the German immigrant Herman Frasch invented the "Frasch method" of mining sulfur, pumping hot steam into the ground, liquidizing the mineral, and pumping the liquid to the surface. This greatly facilitated sulfur mining.
|The area was expanded with the addition of the Cities Service (Citgo) oil refiner.|
We found the local library and I worked on the blog and Phil did some genealogy. We stayed at the local Walmart.
