So Saturday my husband took a rare day off from working on the farm. We took a drive.
|This is us, getting ready to head out. My husband has a dip|
of chewing tobacco in his mouth. Sigh.
|This used to the Roanoke County Courthouse, but it is|
now part of Roanoke College.
|We ate lunch at Macados in Salem. They have good|
chicken salad. While we were there, we watched a parade
of vehicles with confederate flags and other decorations
|This is downtown Salem, or what's left of it. I remember it|
differently than what it looks like now.
|This is the ponds in Salem. I caught a big catfish in there|
once during a fishing rodeo.
|No trip is complete without a stop at Walmart for something.|
|Heading into Elliston, the Blue Jay Motel greets travelers.|
I always take a picture of it because my great Aunt Ruth and
Uncle Ted once managed the place. Best blueberry pancakes ever.
|Christiansburg means cars. We checked on the new Camrys.|
Not impressed enough to trade in my 2014.
|We drove through Christiansburg downtown.|
|We came across a car show.|
|We did not get out because it was really hot.|
|We went into this store to see if they had any chair|
end tables. They did not have what we wanted.
|This is what we went to look at it. Yes, junk.|
|Farm junk. Pieces of stuff that mean nothing to me.|
|The stuff does, however, mean something to my husband. But|
he did not find what he wanted on this day.
And that was that. I slept most of the way home. I don't do well on long adventures anymore. We were out about five hours, I suppose.
Our great outing.
