Their "current day Village People" rendition of Y.M.C.A. turned into A.A.R.P. It was too funny!
The third night we went to see the "other music show" in town. It was a big disappointment. It was way too loud, no banjo, no hammer dulcimer, no free popcorn, and way too much slap stick comedy in goofy costumes.
On Wednesday,we drove to Blue Springs Heritage Center. Due to the extreme drought this summer, water levels were down. Admission price was reduced due to the on going construction there.
The flowers were at the end of their season, but there were still various colors showing.
Notice all the Boston ferns?
This is believed to be the oldest inhabited area in Arkansas and sets above the springs.
This is Beaver Lake where the levels were also extremely low. One gate opened as we were viewing. However it stayed open just a very few minutes.
This is White river below the dam.
We celebrated the blacksmith's first Social Security check at Local Flavor Restaurant.
I had the avocado, cheddar, and caramelized onion sandwich on honey wheat bread. It was delicious!!!
Speaking of food, sorry SIL Rusty (he hates food pics). We stopped at Lambert's Cafe on our way home. Fried okra was served on paper towels while we waited for our lunch.
I ordered fried chicken livers. I know some of you are grossed out now!
Lambert's are known for their thrown hot dinner rolls. They are served with honey or sorghum! So good!
We passed this sweet lady heading out of Springfield, Missouri. She gave us thumbs up when she passed us! Her license plate was Nonny 7. It always makes my day when we see another Casita going down the road.
It was a great trip with beautiful weather and a nice way to get some R & R.
