We hit the road bright and early this morning (8:30 – that’s pretty bright and early for someone who doesn’t like to get out of bed while it’s still dark!!) and arrived in Forrest City, AR around 8:00 pm. I drove the Sprinter van and had absolutely no problem. We were a little nervous when we decided to stop at McDonald’s for some breakfast. The questions of the morning – should we try the drive-thru, how high is this monster, and what if we get stuck in there? We decided to give it a go AND fortunately there was a lady behind us and she gave us the go-ahead sign. I do feel sorry for the poor girl who took our order. We were so concerned about the height that we couldn’t place an intelligent order. I apologized when we got to the window. I’m sure we provided some entertainment for the morning crew! Gloria and Jill (our Olde Green Cupboard friends) warned us about drive-thru’s and hotel porticos!!
Lunch was a treat. We decided to stop in Jefferson, TX and visit this great little place – Kitt’s Kornbread Sandwich & Pie Bar. They serve the greatest sandwiches on fresh, warm cornbread. We each had the broccoli cornbread and their broccoli salad – YUMMY!! They also serve the best pies, but today we decided to forgo dessert – we were heading to The Jefferson General Store to buy some candy for the rest of the trip. Biggest disappointment – no banana Laffy Taffy ( I found some later, so all is good again.)
Tomorrow it’s on to Chicago – about 9 hours drive time. We’ll have to see who gets behind the wheel tomorrow morning. Paula usually does the driving, but today she got to be the passenger and work on a car project (UFO – cross stitch sampler). I think she was enjoying the whole non-driving thing!!!
Until next time. Happy quilting!
