When my friends, Bob and Marti, called to see what we were doing on Thursday, I couldn't imagine why they'd be concerned since they were five and a half hours away in Las Vegas. They are also a "home-free" couple and rent places to stay as they traverse the US.
It seems they were looking to take a day trip to come and visit us! I was honored to say the least that they would drive all that way just to see us.
We enjoyed an evening sitting around the patio and discussing their future trip to Alaska and all the sights they want to take in. Since Left Brain has been there with the tour bus he was a good source of information, as he is on many things.
Then we took them to Organ Stop Pizza for supper before they retreated back to their hotel for the night.
In the morning we met them for breakfast at Crackers & Co, a place I'd found using Yelp. It had four and a half stars so it must be good. This site is a great tool for finding those wonderful places only the locals seem to know about and is indispensable for those of us on the road.
It's location was finally located, tucked behind the Home Depot and it was worth the search. Nice decor and interesting food choices. Marti opted for the cherry cheesecake pancakes and all I wanted was the huge cinnamon roll, which made a meal in itself.
We had the host snap photos of us before we went our separate ways once again.
It was great seeing them again and I look forward to another visit when we both land back in the "old home area" this spring.
Long Live the Queen of Good Friends
