What an awesome reward! if you've never had pralines in Georgia, you should immediately schedule a visit. Or a layover in Atlanta. Better yet, if you can get to the riverfront in Savannah to try the pralines, you will think you're in heaven.
Then another flight to Kansas City. I hate flying - but it is a necessary evil. I did some cross stitching to pass the time, so it's not a total waste. First stop when we got to Kansas was a barbecue joint. We asked for advice at the car rental place, and were advised to try Oklahoma Joe's. It turns out Oklahoma Joe's grew out of the back of a gas station, which is still operating today in the front corner of the building and property. We waited in line for over an hour, and it was soooo worth the wait!
Lest you think I only blog about food when I travel, after eating, hubby wanted to check into the hotel and take a short nap, but I prevailed, and we stopped at a Quilt Store on the way. Would you believe I walked out of there with NO fabric? They had a lot of batiks, which I don't care for, and a wonderful selection of reproductions, but I don't currently have a project in mind so couldn't decide on anything. Their fat quarters were outrageously priced so I wasn't even tempted by them. However, they did have a large book selection so I walked out with these. After all, I didn't want hubby to think it was a wasted trip!
Blogger is being very obstinate today, so you'll have to stand on your head to see the second book. But at least Blogger is here, so I won't get too upset.
The rest of the day was spent napping, stitching, and several hours of family time. Today is the big party and more family time. But if I don't get off here, we'll miss it all, so until later.........
Counting my many blessings....Sunny
