Halfway There

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!

  1. Love how your road trips revolve around food and shopping. I am trying to imagine just talking quilt talk in a car for 2 days. Fab.
    My friend who was an antique dealer forgot she had a table on the roof of her car and one day drove right up on to her drive and into the garage. You guessed it. . It became a coffee table instantly.
    Looking forward to stopping by your booth at Paducah.
    Safe Travel. Sue from the UK.

    • Paula and I had a great laugh over your table story. Probably laughed the hardest because we realized it was something we would do!!! We have a great time on our road trips. Be sure to stop by and say hello in Paducah. We would love to meet you.
