What do you do on the hottest day of the summer with the U.S. credit rating downgraded and the stock market about to tank?
You grab the dog and pile into the Chrysler and stop at the Jolly Cone en route to one of the biggest springs in the nation, known as, um, Big Spring. If you stand close to the mist as the tens of thousands of gallons come roaring out of the ground, you can feel cool for a second, and the financial world seems very far away.

As I type this I bet you are RIGHT THIS MINUTE enjoying floating in "your" river on this last day of your Goose trip.
