Where is Friendship?Posted Tuesday, July 12, 2011, at 1:03 PM
Well, that's exactly what's happened! I found this photo on my desktop, and I can't, for the life of me, remember where I took it!
I asked my traveling buddy, and now that he sees the photo, he says it's in Arkansas between Little Rock and Arkadelphia.
He first thought it was the "Friendship" that was on old Highway 25 between Malden and Kennett.
The only "old Highway 25" that I know of is the gravel road that takes off to the east from Highway 25 in Advance, travels a ways, cuts back south, intersects with my highway (00), keeps going south to 91 (to Bell City), crosses it and continues almost to Aquilla before it disappears into the mists of oblivion....
Yessir, folks, it takes a lot of gas to travel this U.S. of A. and sniff out the little forgotten places....
Then, it takes even more brain power to REMEMBER them, when the specter of the "Big A" looms over your brain, threatening to destroy every memory you ever possessed (important or trivial).
Still, I hope you won't mind if I take a few days off from my "On the Road" project....since the road is so BLASTED HOT! You should see what MoDot is doing on Highway 25!!!
A heat index of 114 is nothing to sneeze at!
If I were in Dexter right now, do you know where I would be? At the Corner Cafe! My good blogger buddy Ken Steinhoff tried to take my Facebook advice and try out the new Mediterranean steak house in Dexter yesterday, but I hadn't known that it was closed on Monday--so Ken and his mom dropped in at the Corner Cafe! They liked it so much that he posted a raving review on his very popular blog at http://www.capecentralhigh.com/cape-phot... Check it out!
From the blazing streets of Advance, Mo., pop. 1301, this is your rural reporter, deciding to spend her lunch hour in front of the fan with a Slim-Fast--180-200 calorie shake!
