Fayetteville

Last week I made a run to Fayetteville with cream to a plant that makes Swanson tv dinners. They use the cream for batter and to make gravy.

It was good to be on the road that I used to drive. I stopped at my usual
  • c-store
  • for coffee but as with most c-stores there wasn't anyone working there that I recognized.

    At the
  • rest area
  • there wasn't much activity. I guess I just hit it at the wrong time of day.

    They still are not finished with
  • the lake
  • but the thing that really seemed strange was at Fayetteville for the first time in 10 years I did not think about trying to call my son or meet him for lunch. Time marches on I guess.

    It was an unevenful day but it sure was nice to be on the road that has provided me with many great memories.

    I travel this road fairly often but you have shown me and taught me some things that I haven't seen/didn't know. I think I'll be driving to Fayetteville in early October to attend a fundraiser for the Oxford American magazine/honor ceremony for my favorite author Donald Harington and I'll have to look out for that cemetery/rest stop. I assume the Lake Ft. Smith sign is on old highway 71 and I'm not sure I'll take that route.
