On a reader tip from Midlife Mutations, I stopped to try the chocolate doughnuts at the Casey's in Oakland on Hwy 133 this weekend. These gas station doughnuts are REALLY good. They are super chocolaty and were very fresh and had a hint of clove in them.
I took a quick detour around the Oakland square and saw this wonderful and curious public water fountain. A lion! Does anyone have information on this water fountain? They also had a building labeled Public Restroom. I can't imagine seeing that anywhere else but a town with a population of 1,000.
Oakland is on the google map, and now I'm off to Springfield.
