I was so bored I had to look up what I could find out about Ellington, Missouri online.

That's seven minutes of my life lost forever.

I once spent a year there one week. Had to "commute" to Centerville since Centerville had no hotel. and the hotel in Ellington had two types of rooms: less smoking or more smoking. And waterbeds. Nice.

TPW - either this was a funny typo - or this visit must have been one of the longest weeks of your life

The latter. I had to spend three more weeks in Centerville and I stayed in a hotel in Fredericktown and drove 45 minutes each way from there. But at least I had 1) a no-smoking hotel room and 2) breakfast and dinner options that went beyond TV dinners. It was a nice drive through the Mark Twain Forest, where the #2 crop is timber (guess what the #1 crop is).

I did go up to Taum Sauk while I was there. Very nice (this was before the dam blew and wiped out Johnson Shut-ins).

It was funny, working at the court house. The jail was in the basement and they would let the inmates out during the day, without much supervision. I asked one of the deputies about this and he basically said, "Where are they gonna go?" True that.
