41. The Springfield Plan

No, no clues will be provided to suggest which (as the words say) Springfield USA (OK, that is a clue that it is not in England, NZ or Liberia); I do know if the Simpsons live there.

Decades ago the Springfield Plan changed my life forever. Well actually it changed my brother's life from 4th grade on. Nonetheless, because actions have consequences, the Springfield plan lead directly to my meeting my wife some decades later and still decades ago.

I am where I am today (Uruguay) as a result of the Springfield Plan (Wikipedia link).
And that just goes to show the power of education.

Stuffies look yummy.

I briefly worked as a waitress in Worcester in the early 70s.

A woman came into the restaurant and ordered a coffee cabinet. I hemmed and hawed and told her we didn't sell furniture!

It was explained to me that what I knew as a milkshake in New Jersey, and a frappe in Massachsetts, was called a cabinet in some parts of the state.

124. Stuffies ARE yummy...a must try!

Coffee milk is the official state drink of RI, but throw in some ice cream and whisk it up and it becomes the fabulous coffee cabinet. A milkshake in RI is typically just milk and flavored syrup frothed together.

A cabinet is the equivalent of a frappe in Massachusetts. The name "cabinet" comes from the storage of ice cream in a cold cabinet (chest).

Ben “Pitchfork” Tillman.
He was the late 19th Century Governor who disenfranchised the black voters. He then served several terms as Senator, and famously wept on the floor of the Senate about a bill to mandate that blacks be allowed to vote because, as he said, it would induce them to behave badly and (paraphrase) “We are going to have to kill a lot of our good colored folks to get them back in line.”

123. We're visiting your State next month

Not close to you or Ptah, unfortunately. Spending four
nights in Page, visiting the aforementioned gash of erosion.
After 4 days in Vegas, back East through Kingman, Flagstaff,
and Winslow (standing on a corner).

125. if you make a run to the north rim to see the condors at vermillion cliffs

or other sites near there, I highly recommend the cookies at Jacob Lake Inn!

and take an hour or two to drive through the petrified forest if you have the time. also check out La Posada in Winslow, whether you stay there or not. wonderful old RR hotel with cool artwork.

132. Will do

Thanks for the info! I've been thru AZ many times
in the truck, but didn't get to see the cool stuff (usually
because of truck restrictions). This is my first time in
a four wheeler. I'll post pics. Again, thanks!

166. Page is also near Antelope Canyon which is worth the time to see it.

It is a slot canyon. Owned by the Navajo Nation, so when you buy a ticket you are supporting the tribe
