|From Behind My Eyes - The Adventures of Tim Stubbe||
From the NFL Hall Of Fame, I road southwast through Amish Ohio to Columbus Ohio where I spent the night, then getting up the next morning and heading West on I70 (did I mention I hate interstates). For about 70 miles to Richmond, Indiana, where my GPS mercifully got me off onto the old highway 40, this was a much more pleasurable and scenic route into into Indianapolis.
When I was with at&t, all the people that I worked with were in the midwest mostly St Louis, Chicago and Indianapolis. I had worked with these people for more than 10 years but had never met them face to face. I was pretty excited to get to finally meet the voice on the end of the phone line.
One of these people Jeremy Foltz had offered to put me up for the night a very kind thing for a weary traveler. I rolled into Indy about noon and met up with Jeremy and after unpacking my gear, we headed into Indianapolis. Here are a few pictures I shot from the at&t building in the center of town.
In the center of town is the Indiana State Soldiers and Sailors Monument that is quiet impressive.
The State Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument was dedicated in 1902 to Indiana's heroes who died in wars before World War I. Erected as a memorial to the soldiers and sailors of the War for the Union (1861-65), it also commemorates the War with Mexico (1846-48), Indian and British Wars (1811-12), War of the Revolution and the capture of Vincennes from the British on February 25, 1779. The Monument rises from a circular plaza, 342 feet in diameter, where once stood the governor's house--but where no governor ever lived. At the lower level of the Monument is a Civil War exhibit.
Meeting up with my co-workers (left to right. Jeff, Gene, Paul, myself, Jeramy) it was a great afternoon. I also spent a pleasant evening with Jeramy and his wife Christen (who I worked with a few years before). I went to bed that night and slept like a baby.
