POOL REPORT #3
Prairie du Chien to LaCrosse, Wisconsin
The president's third OTR of the day was at Culver's Frozen Custard in Viroqua, Wisconsin. A sign out front said, "Welcome Dr. Tubb," a reference to Richard Tubb, one of the president's physicians. A few members of your pool happened to know that the physician comes from this town and is along for the ride today. Your pool was not permitted inside but, peering through the windows, could see the president in shirtsleeves shaking hands with patrons.
The president emerged after perhaps five minutes with a vanilla cone, surrounded by most of the children who had been inside. His hand rested on the shoulder of a boy (of unknown name and age) wearing a red sweatshirt, khaki shorts and a broad grin. Asked how the frozen custard was, the president replied, "Lot of calories" and, a moment later, "I highly recommend it." Asked whether his patronage of the custard shop helped the economy, he replied, "I'm glad you finally figured out how it works." The "Yes, American Can" caravan left Prairie du Chien at 3:06 p.m. It arrived in LaCrosse about 6:15 You know what was along the route, because you saw it, too.
