Woo hoo, we escaped to the big city!


This is what our country roads looked like when we left the house this morning. We had to make a stop in Oak Grove to get gas.

QuikTrip was very busy, with people waiting in line for a pump.

It's very painful to fill up our pickup; it has two tanks, and gets ten to twelve miles per gallon; now you know why we don't use it often.

Over sixty-one dollars. Nice.

At least I-70 is dry.

Sam's Club wasn't crowded.

There was no other place to put our stuff; good thing I didn't buy much.

Then we went to Smokehouse Barbecue.

We had deep-fried cauliflower dipped in Ranch dressing

and split a sandwich. After all, celebration was in order: we survived cabin fever!

The country roads were looking much better on our way home.
Thanks, Cliff, for taking me away.

Oh wow I bet you were ready to get out a while. Love the header with Sadie and her stick running in the snow.
