The cafe inside the gallery attracks many visitors
from near and far each week. I really need to keep
a journal or list of all the interesting characters I have
met over the years.
On Monday, 2 couples from Canada came
in and ordered coffee and lunch. They were on
motorcycles that they had "trailered" down to Arkansas,
and they were in the process of exploring most of the
South on this trip. They had strange accents, and I
am sure they thought mine was hilarious! Anyway, they
wanted their cornbread with honey and jelly, and I
thought THAT was hilarious....
Our next interesting couple came in late one
afternoon, armed with a clipboard and lots of enthusiasm.
They were also in the process of exploring the whole
state of Louisiana, systematically by points of interest
carefully researched and notated in her clipboard. I was
touched to find out she had been diagnosed with luekemia a
few years ago, and now in remission, was in the process of
seeing as much as she could. They had already done Mississippi,
and were working their way after Louisiana to Arkansas,
and hopefully Oklahoma. They live in Flower Mound, a suburb of
Dallas. They take a few weeks every couple of months, and
check off neat places on their list. They were having a great
time, and I encouraged them to keep a journal or blog of their
experiences, and they were excited about adding that to
I wish them safe travels and lots more destinations together.
Oh, that we all could life to its' fullest, and make our
days count. amen
