The Road to Kennett

I've only driven once, on my own, to Kennett, MO.  Kennett is about 30 minutes west of us and reminds me a lot of Interstate 5 in the Central Valley of California.  You pass by a whole lot of nothing as you go from Point A to Point B.  It feels like a long drive but my friend Beverly, God love her, suggested I reflect on something, as I was driving, to pass the time.  And this reminded me of a couple of CDs that were in my glove box.  One of them was a sample CD of four short Radio/TV programs by Bishop Fulton Sheen.  What a great way to pass the time.  Lighthouse Media puts out these short CD sampler and I plan to do a little shopping there soon.

So - I get to Kennett and am rudely shown, by pulling into an empty parking lot, that the event I was planning to attend today wasn't happening. I was there on the wrong day.  It's next Saturday.   From there I took off and headed to a place called Big E's BBQ.  I've been wanting to try this place ever since I first spotted it and today was the day.  Good service.  Nice cozy atmosphere. Good barbeque.


At this point, I was debating taking a chance on getting a haircut at Walmart but I could not face the parking lot.  The place was packed so instead of going in, I went home.  What started out as a planned for leisurely day of poking around and several hours out of the house, turned into an excursion of 2 hours and change.  While I'm disappointed, I'm actually glad to be home.  The weather is changing.  The temperature is plunging and snow is actually threatening. Again.  We'll see how good a threat that is in the morning.
