Some more snippets of the road trip!


Long before I got on the plane....I searched and found out that St. Louis had White Castle.  I begged Candy to put it on the list.  She has never been....





 and I dare say, she won't go again!  She was less than impressed.  About like me and Sorgum.  Anyhoo....I was in my glory, being a DEEE troit girl!!

I walked on a lot of these kinds of sidewalks...

 and I would so love to take my son-in-law to this restaurant!

These were the kind of decorations inside of the stores in St. Charles Missouri.  A darling collection of shops and eateries.

 Sorry so dark....but did I mentioned, it rained?  What day?  Pick one!!





 We stopped in the old soda fountain shoppe....and that is my Root Beer Float!


I got this pic for my hubby....oh, the outfit....uh did I mentioned it rained and it was COLD????  I have about 4 layers on...cuz, it was supposed to be Spring!  But it still was fun.....oh, next, I will have to show you the Mississippi!!  She was a floodin'!

I wish I would have known you were in St. Charles...I REALLY would have driven across the state to give you a hug!! I'm sorry the weather was so cruddy, but I'm glad you got to visit that great town....I love going there. Would you believe I've never eaten at White Castle? They just never looked to tastey to me! ha ha!

Have fun in Mississippi and watch out for the water!!

I NEVER, and I do mean NEVER .. miss White Castle on my visits back home. I grew up with them. Steak 'n Shake for their Orange Freeze drinks too.

You're right - I'll never darken the door of a White Castle again! I loved everything else we did though!

Ceekay, I love your new header. So sorry it rained while you were on your trip. Looks like you found some great places to go. I used to love W.C., but I haven't been in years. What great looking antiques. That wonderful scale in your last photo has me drooling. laurie

You were so close to me! Two plus a bit hours from St. Charles... Yes... Rainy, cold spring here. Love your pics. I love White Castle. The St. Louis one was in that movie with Susan Sarandon and James Spader.... I was racking my mind for the title.... White Castles...duh.

You should have had burgers at Krystal (in Huntsville/Athens/Decatur) they are just like White Castle. I grew up with them and we have them in FL now. Love 'em! Does Candy like Krystals?

I've never been to White Castle, but have heard amazing things about it. So it's a case of you either love it or hate it, I guess. Like most things truth to tell.
