Sue and I
It's hard to believe that it will soon be two years
since my Step Sister Susan (Scufty to me) came to
visit us when we lived in our old Victorian home. She was
here for nearly a month ...we got short changed with time but we had had a wonderful time just the same.
Sue and Donna
She and my sister in law Donna and I had a 'girls weekend' and took off to Springfield Missouri for a look around Donna's old stomping ground and then we headed south to
'Home of the Throwed Rolls' which just happens to be
my most favorite restaurant in the world...
The cute fellow who was kind enough to stop in mid throw for me.
For those of you who have never experienced Lambert's
let me explain why their logo is
'Home Of The Throwed Rolls'
You see...a fellow rolls around this trolley
as people are eating.
Then when you're least expecting it he yells
Well it's 'heads up' and people start standing up and yelling 'here' and that's when the fun starts.
The most delicious soft fresh rolls start flying through
the air. The aroma is out of this world and
the taste..is to die for.
This is the lunch size...we were there for supper once and the plate was even more filled!
By the way...this is their Chicken Fried Steak and it is the best I've ever had. Oh and if you think this plate is full...they come around with big bowls of fried potatoes and onions...fried Okra... macaroni and tomatoes and if you want some they put a HUGE scoop on your plate. Plus they come around again!
I was able to get a picture of our food but unfortunately
we all scarfed our rolls down before I could get a shot.
Never fear though...if you want more
just stand up and holler 'here'
and the fellow will throw
Sue admiring the huge insulated mug they serve coffee in. Isn't she cute!
From Ozark Missouri after waddling out to Donna's vehicle
we headed to Branson Missouri where we did a bit of shopping and then spent the night. The next morning we were off to Arkansas.
I love the hills.
Table Rock Lake
We finally arrived at our destination...
This is such a wonderful little town to visit...it is truly
a Victorian village with lots of quaint shops
and interesting places to eat.
Sue having fun shopping
The Crescent Hotel which is just up the hill from the village
There are buggy rides which take you around the village and then up into the residential area.
This would be the best way to see all the beautiful old homes as you can relax and not
have to worry about all the tight turns and narrow roads.
The little shops and restaurants are painted bright
I was too slow getting a photo of Sue and Donna walking under this sign ;-)
The village its self is nestled in a rocky little cleft in the Ozark Mountains and above the town district
is the residential area.
OH MY there are some of the cutest little Victorian homes
you could ever imagine. I'm sorry I didn't get many pictures
of the houses but it was February when we were
there and they had just cleaned up from a huge
ice storm and it was just a tad dull and chilly!
Many of these sweet little cottages are B&B's
We spent the night and then after doing a bit more shopping and looking around we were on our way back to Kansas.
It was a great trip home and Donna took us down back roads
through Arkansas. What a beautiful State and I can't wait to get back there again.
We brought home a few treasures but most of all wonderful memories to last us a life time.
Before we knew it ...it was time for Sue to head back home to Canada and all that snow.
Thanks for the wonderful visit Sis...it's been two years
... can't wait to see you again.
Donna...thanks for taking us!
I think it's time to plan another girls weekend away ;)
Have you had a 'girls weekend' away?
If so I'd love to hear about it.
Enjoy your weekend!
