This was my view at lunch...we stopped in North Platte...My dear hubby loves to read the paper...well...it wasn't quite that bad...but he did read it on the table...:)
Corn Fields are EVERYWHERE!! Here it hasn't been harvested yet...My son's very first job here in York was detassling...His job was to go out and pull the tassles off the corn so it could be harvested...He was in middle school and just begged me to let him do this...He would leave before dawn and come home sometime after noon muddy from head to tow...But had the biggest grin on his face! I survived that summer...and then the next year my daughter wanted to do it...We had a very messy summer that year!! Good memories!
Today was our drive to York on the way to Omaha to see my daughter and mom. So, I thought I'd give you a sampling of what we saw on the way...:_ I didn't show you the pics I took of the thousands of trucks on the road...thought you would rather see the corn and hay!
Tonight at dinner we ate at a place called Chances R. It is a beautiful little restaurant in town that had a back lounge area with a fireplace that I used to go to while in school and sit by the fire to do my homework while my kids were in school...I'd get my ice tea and just sit...It was wonderful...Back then I was single and the men would try to stop by and visit (word gets around in a small town, so they all knew I was fresh meat from Denver)...but I was so serious about getting my degree and busy with two other part time jobs and raising my kids and dating my now hubby, so I wasn't interested...It was only on the day before I left that my friends threw me a party at Chances R that I found out I had been nicknamed the "Ice Princess"...hmmm...I think perhaps it was a compliment??
So, off to bed so we can be up early and off to Omaha...
