Please allow me to share with you one of the most precious trips our family had ....
This was the year we celebrated Christmas in St. Louis, Missouri. It was a lot of fun but we missed Jack who couldn't go with us on this. Jack was still serving in the US Air Force in North Dakota. I missed him a lot, so after our vacation I mailed a couple of good pictures to him and some souvenier goodies I found which I thought he would like. Jack was so surprised and happy when he picked up his mail at his apartment mailboxes.
Things to see and do in St. Louis MO. I regret now that I didn't take as much pictures or visited all the nice places in this town.
This was the old St. Lous Union train station that St. Louis developed into a shopping mall. The mall is a neat place to wander around. The shops are very unique by selling merchandise you wouldn't normally find in other places. We walked aimlessly hopping from one store to another.

The Whispering Arch is located at the entrance of Union Station. This is the plaque that explains this neat experience one is about to have with Whispering Arch. To get the full experience of the Whispering Arch, each person must be on each side of the arch. If you whisper something facing the wall, the other person several feet away will be able to hear it as clear as day on the other end of the arch.
I was trying to show the both sides of the Whispering Arch.
Christine and I standing on one side of the Arch while Jeff was on the other side. This was a neat thing you can not experience anywhere else in the world.
This was in the hotel lobby and Jeff decided to play his favorite piano piece for me.
The Gateway Arch has been a popular tourist attraction since its completion in October 1965. It is a 630-foot ride to the top of this world-famous stainless steel monument for the finest view in the Gateway City. Designed to last 1,000 years, on a clear day, you can see for about 30 miles from atop the structure.

Looking West, you'll have a breathtaking view of downtown St. Louis
My son loves surprises, so from time to time I would send him things I buy from our trips as well as pictures. His trip to the airforce office commercial mailboxes became a regular trip for him to check for surprises and sometimes a money bonus I would send him.
