The other day, I went to Herrin, IL with my girlfriend. She had to go there for work and I figured why not tag along? Well, one reason I shouldn't have tagged along is because I was coming down with pneumonia. Don't worry, that's already been pointed out by everyone I know.
Herrin is a really small town in southern Illinois. To give you an idea of how far south we were in Illinois, check out this disturbingly large cross we passed, somewhere around Effingham. I don't know if the picture gives a good size reference, but this thing is fucking huge.
While my girlfriend was working, I was wandering aimlessly around the town. I was hoping that I'd come back with at least one interesting picture and I was not disappointed. Let me present the Herrin VFW. Yep, that's a helicopter.
