Fog And Smoke

We have been having a beautiful September!! The mornings are so cool and there has been a lot of fog. My favorite time of day are our early morning walks.

Sunrise through the fog.

Sunrise through the smoke from all the fires out West. It looks more like the moon! Thankful that we can’t smell the smoke. Prayers for all the firefighters and all in the those effected by the fires.

Signs of autumn. My favorite season!

Pan Fried Chicken Day!!

Mr. Farmer was needing to go to Buhler KS to take back some combine wheels. He asked if Wylie and I wanted to ride along. I said sure!! but we have to go on a Thursday. Why Thursday he asked, I told him that’s when Lavon’s serves “pan fried chicken”!! It seemed like a long wait til Thursday. Wylie and I had been there before on a Friday, when she serves Verenika, and many other items including BBQ. I couldn’t wait to go back for the “pan fried chicken”.

Welcome to Lavon’s Bakery and BBQ.

So many choices and all of it so good!!! (photo from previous trip, everyone today had masks on)

They have a patio that offers outdoor dining, surrounded by flowers and hummingbird feeders. Wylie didn’t want to bother the cat. We chose another table!

I meant to take a photo of my plate of pan fried chicken, real mashed potatoes and gravy (made with the drippings of the chicken), but it was too late. I had eaten it already! Oh and don’t forget to get a piece of pie!! My favorite – coconut cream!

You really must make a trip to Lavon’s Bakery and BBQ in Buhler. The owners are wonderful people and you will not find a better home cooked meal. Let me know when you are going – I could meet you there!!!

Hey Mr. Farmer, I will make a parts run to Buhler anytime (as long as it’s Thursday or Friday)!

Good News

This is good news!! Located in Durham, KS (population 112) is one of the best places to eat. It had been closed due to the floods last year. I was so happy to see this sign that it’s open again.

Home cooking at its best.

Main Street Cafe & Bakery hours: closed Sunday and Monday, open Tuesday thru Saturday 7am-2pm

Main Street Durham

Such a beautiful clock.

I was here on Sunday, but will make sure I get back for a great meal. We’ll meet you there!

A Doolittle Day

I always have a few “good” books on the coffee table, that I rotate occasionally. When I was putting away my Christmas decorations I chose the book “Bev Doolittle New Magic”.  She is an artist who uses a technique that she refers to as camouflage technique.  She “hides” images in here paintings. She is of my favorite artists as her themes are of Native Americans, animals and landscapes.

When I was out taking photos while there was still some snow on the ground and trees covered with frozen fog, I though of some of her works.  I’m still trying to find hidden images in my photos.

One probably thought by the title of this post, that it was going to be a day that I was going to “do little”.  I had just received word the night before that I didn’t have to report for jury duty.  To celebrate – Wylie and I loaded up and went on a cold adventure.
