“It’s ‘micka’ season out here in Missouri”
I sat on the backless bench and watched the house wife dutifully shooing away the bazillion flies that descended on our supper. My weary brain fuzzed over her words. Wait-what’s a micka??
Emily and I are currently in #deepdutch We left early Saturday morning, picked up 6 Lancaster County Amish ladies and flew west. This is basically what I look like after 1000 miles:
Saint Louis Arch was a madhouse. Apparently there was a fair in progress. I loved watching the children play in the ginormous sprinkler
Em and I stayed in a darling little cabin and enjoyed a leisure Sunday morning before we went to the Laura Ingalls Wilder museum. It was kinda cool to see the desk where the famous series was penned. Laura’s kitchen was custom built for her- she was 4′ 11″ and Almanzo was 5′ 4″. Also it was pretty neat to see Pa’s fiddle. I enjoyed our time there. If you ask Em if she did-you’ll get a different response 😜
The journey across Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico has gone rapidly, but we’ve enjoyed the ride!
The intense farming that happens in the these parts does my agricultural loving heart good.
We’ve enjoyed stopping occasionally to get a feel for the land we are traveling through.
The stop at “The Big Texan” did not disappoint. The food was tops, and our waitress was very gracious. When I was in my teens-I was sure that I could handle their 72 oz steak in an hour challenge. (Again Em’s opinion is differing here) but those days are gone-I settled for a 9 oz Ribeye instead.
We traveled the Musical Highway on Route 66. We didn’t tell the girls what we were doing, and I wish you could’ve heard the excitement when they figured out the rumble strip was singing lol.
And that leaves us in New Mexico ready to embark on a full day of travel.
If I could sum our #deepdutch tour up with one pic-it would be this one.
“Auf wiedersehen” as they say. Or “See you later” where I come from 🤠 🙈
See you down the trail,
Kendra for the whole gang
