Yesterday I had Cliff go past some areas of Blue springs that I mentioned in my last blog entry. All this may be boring to most of my readers, but it helps me remember how and where things used to be.
We drove by what used to be the Gilkey place, the property my parents rented and where they milked cows and raised gardens. It's still vacant, although a lot of dirt has been moved around on it. Across the road where my parents first moved when they relocated to Blue Springs, you can see the back of a shopping center which includes the Target store where my oldest granddaughter works.
We went home by way of Bates City, since there are bridges being replaced on our normal route. We hadn't had any Bates City Barbecue for a long time, so we went in and got ourselves a sandwich. It isn't the best barbecue you'll ever eat, but it's good enough.
