Sunday morning we sat having our half biscuit with jelly at McDonalds (a Sunday morning ritual before church with us) and I looked out the window where Sherry was pointing. It was a Wisconsin tag on a car. My mind races to Park Falls and some wonderful folk. To Milwaukee and ‘Honey I’m Home’.
(We get the plain biscuit on Sun. Morn but I could not find a picture of just a biscuit)
When we are on the road and a truck passes from Nebraska, I think automatically of JOE, ok really I think of Lucy then Joe. LOL trucks pass us, every so often we pass one of them. But eventually one will be from where we have been or know someone.
Folks would be amazed at the conversations that pop up because of car tags or trucks. All pleasant talks, when a truck passes from San Antonio, I always say, reckon they know Paula and John? We were passed last year by a truck from Cleveland, TN. Than one brought up quite a few folk. I was just contacted by Reggie. He and his wife have moved to Cleveland, evidently a good place to retire.
We had a ball talking about Opp, Alabama, after a truck passed from there. That is Sheila’s home town. Her Mom & Dad are there and we had the privilege of having dinner with them once. Alabama brings up Helen, Jun and Elvis also.
When a truck passes that has NEW ORLEANS on it, we have an hour of wanting to go to the French Quarter and have Beneighs and coffee. And since meeting ‘Y’ she comes up. One of our first trips to New Orleans, we had as our guide Fred & Frances. Fred being in the Coast Guard at the time.
In a park when I see someone walking a Corgi, yeah that looks like Betty’s Koda. See a New Yorker and we think of Gary and Anna Mae. And a KY tag brings up a slew of folk.
This could go on to Florida, and it brings up folk like Glenda, Jimmie, Rose and the Brit. I know I have missed some, but I couldn’t get that off my mind after the Wisconsin tag. Isn’t it funny how just one thing brings a flow of memories, good ones too, in this case.
I missed some, but you can bet on the road you are not missed!!!
Thanks for coming this way.

You have to admit that this 1904 Mercedes is beautiful.
