Free and Easy Friday: Road Trip!

"So I'll grab the wheel and I'll point it west, pack the good, and leave the rest, and drive until I find the missing beat.
You said I wouldn't get too far on a tank of gas and an empty heart,
but I've got everything I'll ever need.
I've got this old guitar and a brand new set of strings."
Lyrics from one of my favorite songs by my former student Miranda Lambert.

I didn't have an empty heart or an old guitar with new strings, but I had an opportunity to make the one hour trek to the nearest Snuffer's restaurant and Bass Pro Shop today with the hubster and that is exactly what I did.  Even with the afternoon temperature reaching 104, we had a cool time together.

That's about all you can do in Texas in August when the temperatures hit the century mark.  Hit the roads with the a/c cranked and the music blaring.  It doesn't matter much where you wind up as long as you wind up together.  A full stomach and making plans for the upcoming hunting season don't hurt either.  Bass Pro has all the goodies to get one in a hunting mood, plus they have those wonderful cinnamon-roasted pecans, although after a Snuffer's burger and cheese fries, I have to save the pecans for another day!

Before we started home, we had to follow our son's suggestion and make a pit stop at Steak 'n Shake for a milkshake.  His wife, after all, is a Steak 'n' Shake executive.  Gotta support the babies and ignore the calories!  And it was worth it!  Yummy!

Happy Labor Day weekend, everybody!  Be safe!
