We ate...

Interesting names of places: We stayed at the R Motel; we ate breakfast one day and bought our groceries at Bill's; we ate dinner 2 nights at a local bar named Mat's; and we had dinner one night at a shed on a farm named Dick's!

Tuesday morning we ate at Bill's - nice cafe inside of the grocery store. Then we bought groceries for the rest of our breakfasts.

Tuesday, the first day of camp we took sub sandwiches with us and ate lunch outside with lots of people!

We went to Ventura on Tuesday night and ate at the Colony Inn - good food!

The lunch on Wednesday was cooked by the owners (Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene) of Country Threads - Maidrites, fresh sweet corn, fresh tomatoes, and a variety of bars.

On Wednesday night, we ate at Dick's Country Inn (bar and dining room) only open on Wednesdays from 4:30 - 8:30!

It is this red 'shed' on a farm in Haystack, Iowa - little hard to find if you don't know where it is at!

A limited menu - the hamburger steak and the t-bones were expensive. They really wanted you to order chicken or fish (walleye). Potato choices were baked or wedges. Salad bar was nice. The honey rolls were wonderful! Prices were cheap for the quality and quantity of food!

The decor was interesting.

And you had the opportunity to read the history of the place:

Thursday was Sandy's birthday. We had Subway sandwiches, chips, and birthday cake.

Mary Baker, the office manager at Country Threads, used to bake wedding cakes. Sandy's cake was good because Mary Baker baked it! Mary is standing behind Sandy.

Friday morning we had fresh kettle corn, complements of Mary Etherington. She has a couple of popcorn machines in the garage! We all enjoyed the food!

  1. Sandy introduced herself to me today at the Makeover site. Nice lady. She asked if I knew you? Now, what does a person say to that? Is there a right or wrong answer? Didn't want to blow your cover int eh witness protection program or anything! Just kidding, not sure where that all just came from. I think I need to go to bed now. :[
