52 Weeks of Happiness: New Discoveries

On a geocaching outing we discovered this little BBQ trailer in a small community called Lytton Springs. It was an odd day out. There was suppose to be a cache near this trailer, but all we found was the lid... so we stopped and had a bite to eat instead.
The kids weren't terribly fond of the food... but I thought it was pretty good... and the folks that ran the trailer were very nice. They sat and chatted with us for a long time.
The kids got chopped beef on a bun, which I liked very much... and my husband and I ordered the brisket sandwich. I would have liked it a lot more on a good whole grain bread... but that'll never happen at a BBQ joint. White bread is sacred at such times.
We stopped at the near by general store to get some drinks to go with our meal. This place was the real deal right down to the old lady manning the register with curlers in her hair. I loved the old bench with the Buttercrust bread sign for a back. It looked like something you'd pay a lot for at an antique store... but I have a feeling this thing had been here since it was new.

The best thing about this outing was that when we set out that morning we had no idea our day would be filled with new discoveries. You never know where the back roads will take you. I think our oddest (and certainly creepiest) discovery of the day was a box full of coconut shells and real chicken feet that we found at the gate of a nearby cemetery. I don't know what that was about and I don't think I want to... It was an odd morning for sure... but you never know where geocaching will take you next.

Cheers,
Jenn

  2. There was probably a logical explanation... a stray dog might have killed a chicken and the caretaker put it in the box for trash pick up... but still... it seems like something out of a horror voodoo flick.

  3. That is so strange about the shells and feet you found. Some kind of voodoo or santeria??

    Looks like a great day, though!

  6. How cool- my kids would love that. That sandwich looks so good- it's been forever since I have had white bread. Forgot how much I love it.

  7. Sorry the cache was a bust, but at least the BBQ was good! The chicken feet would have really creeped me out, although I am ashamed to admit it, but my grandmother gave me chickens' feet to play with when I was really young. If you pull the tendons the toes move. Free puppets! Gotta love life on the farm!
