We have a straight through run today from
All day long we have seen clouds ahead and knew it was pouring rain up there somewhere. If we were lucky, those clouds were moving north-east and would be gone by the time we got there.
There was one special moment to let you know about.
When you are hungry for lunch in a very small town, and ask at the gas station where to eat, you just have to go with what they tell you. So when the lady in the station pointed up the street to the International Hotel Café, that’s where we went. There was a young high school girl (waitress), who spent as much time talking on her cell phone with her friends as she did waiting on the few customers that she had. The other help in the kitchen must have been the same, because it took twenty minutes for them to tell us the meat for my wife’s sandwich was frozen and she would have to order something different. And then it took another 15 minutes to make up the two egg salad sandwiches we ordered.
Historic meal, hardly. Special, no not at all. Better than starving, only just barely.
