A Sunday Drive

MMMMMM. For brunch today I had one of the sandwiches Dianne was talking about in her comment below...turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, mayo on a hoagie roll. It was delish...even better than the turkey dinner last night.

I had planned to make turkey noodle soup today, but around 11:00 a.m. DH wanted to take a ride. I was working on my quilt.

He didn't have to ask me twice. It took me about 15 minutes to touch up my hair and off we went for the day. For dinner we just had a soup and salad bar at a restaurant. So there was NO COOKING for me today.

On our journey we passed this tree

Yes, it FULL of shoes. I don't know what the point is...just a bunch of shoes thrown in a tree by the road. I should have brought some of those I threw away...Darn! Next time I am cleaning out shoes, I will have to remember this tree and save a pair to throw up there.

On the way home we go through a town that calls itself the elk capital of the world. This town is about an hour away from where I live, but I have never seen a wild Elk when driving through.

There is one man who has a big herd fenced in on his property. We drove by there and sure enough, we saw some BIG ones.

They are magnificent animals. I really hope I never see one run in front of my car while driving! On occasion we do hear of someone hitting an elk. You would be lucky to live through one of those collisions.

We found a little ice cream store called "Lickety Split". Isn't that the cutest name for an ice cream store? We stopped to get a cone to eat in the car.

We decided on a waffle cone. It's been years since we've had one of those. I chose Maple Nut ice cream. It was a favorite of mine when I was a kid. DH chose orange pineapple.

We both enjoyed every lick.

All in all we had a wonderful Sunday.


  1. Sounds like a great day and that ice cream looks yummy!

  2. Mmmm, ice cream.

    (And elk steaks, but that's another story.)

  3. I have to stop reading your blog when I'm hungry. You're killing me. Thank God for 24 hour grocery stores. TWT

  4. Zoey, a tree with shoes is funny. A friend send my a newspaper from Britain with a tea-pot-tree. It was so great!
    Now I must eat an icecream, since I saw your photo!


  5. Glad you had a nice drive with your DH. Mine never suggests a drive. Maybe because he is in his car so much for his job.
    I knew you would like 'The Bobbie'. It's Capriotti's Sandwich Shops biggest seller hoagie (they have a turkey on their sign)!
    The elks are magnificent animals-thanks for the photo. We mainly have deer around here.
    You look like you are 'toasting' each other with your ice cream cones. : )

  6. I think the shoe tree is like a passage of rite thing-maybe they just graduated, made a team or something like that.
    The kids that just graduated use to whack mailboxes with baseball clubs and ours was hit a couple of times. Seems that is passe now.

  7. What an enjoyable Sunday drive you had...I had heard about shoe trees before and found this link to explain how they get started: I think it's kinda neat:-) Yummmm I love waffle cones!!!

  8. There was a shoe tree like that in the town where I attended college, Bellingham, WA. My favorite shoe was a high-heeled, red, slouchy boot. If those shoes could talk...

  9. Sounds like a perfect Sunday! I'd never head of a shoe tree! Off to check out Pea's link..
