Dependable Rexall Drugs

I loved the look of this old sign on the side of a building on First Street in Hermann, Missouri. This building is across the street from the First Bank branch. This sign, along with the street reminds me of the small town in Southeast Kansas my family hails from: Coffeyville. Hermann is a charming little town on the southern bank of the Missouri River in between Jefferson City and St. Louis. It's located in the heart of Missouri's wine country and boasts several wineries. It also is a good place to look for antiques. The big annual event in Hermann is the Oktoberfest which takes place every weekend in October.

Late Missouri Summer

This was taken from Missouri Highway 94 looking south towards the Missouri River in September 2006. The river is inbetween the first line of trees and the hills in the distance. The warm colors of the ripe soybean field come through despite the fact that it had been raining all morning. If you're wondering, this field is a couple of miles downriver from Hermann, Missouri.
