On our trip one grocery purchase was $1.76 and I gave the checker $2.01. She stared at the penny, finally gave it back to me with the four pennies I did not want in my wallet. What are we teaching children these days besides how to use facebook and myspace?
If you’re headed to Jackson WY, south of there is a place called Blondies. We didn’t expect much out there, our first trip, but were pleasantly surprised with a good burger, service and we met a really nice trucker at the counter from NC. Hey there bud!
We stayed in Jackson one night, what a rip-off, hotel-wise. We went downtown to check out the place and restaurants and walked the town square. Then we looked at $38 steaks and buses started unloading patrons at 5:30 p.m. so we took a walk and found a place, Mountain High Pizza, that met our needs. Good, honest house-made thin whole wheat crust in a homey atmosphere with locals.
This past weekend we found out about Tommy’s Texas BBQ in Heber, UT. We’ll definitely check that out one of these days. If you’re ever in Kamas, UT you must go to Hi-Mountain Drug, a real drug store with camping and Mormon books and sheet music and outdoor artifacts. And the State’s best burger. Sit at the old fashioned counter and get a fresh-made lemonade or limeade for the full effect of ‘fifties dining.
We didn’t mention the places that disappointed us or tell you why we cut our trip short. We did drive through Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, and the Grand Targhee National Forest and we saw some wonderful sights. I drove the entire way so while in the car I took my role as driver seriously and looked out for the road, other cars and especially wildlife crossing the road. Jim got to see more but that’s good. We’ll come back, this was just a taste.
Since we came home early we started on our list of things yet to see in town, so that when guests come in, we can tailor a trip for them that meets their needs. It was the Zoo this time, a small Zoo that has smaller enclosures than I’d like but has evidently been re-done recently with both guests and animals in mind so would be excellent for children under ten.
One thing we need to mention, especially to Val the Vet, is that the young lady, age eight, who took care of Zoe is an excellent dog-sitter and wants to become a Vet. Our Zoe has a new friend and is happier for their few days together. Do you think she needs to go to A&M for her training? Thank you, everyone for reading and writing in.
Now I must plan menus for several upcoming social events. It’s a challenge because 99.5% of my kitchen is in storage half a country away! I can’t even sit on the bed surrounded by cookbooks and come up with a menu! Wish me well. Cheers! Dee
