Blue Bell & Bluebonnets
Another great day with great friends! We started off with breakfast at Becky’s Café, a little diner in Columbus, TX. On our way to the Blue Bell ice cream factory, we stopped at a hardware/general store. While looking around, I realized how new this all still is. . . .
I saw this really neat Texas star, and the first thought that popped into my head was “this would look really good on the end of our barn”. Ok, #1 – we don’t have a barn anymore and #2 – our barn was in central Ohio! We got a little chuckle out of that.
After we left the store we had to stop at a patch of bluebonnets. Apparently, this is a “Texas thing” that you have your picture taken in a field of bluebonnets. Thanks to Janice Evans, here it is!!
Then we were off to the Blue Bell Ice Cream Factory. The employees’ motto is “eat what you can and sell the rest”. They have freezers in the break room full of their products, and the employees can eat all they want. Hmm. . . that almost makes me want to go back to work!
Great pics of Janice & David and Ed & Debi. We have really enjoyed our time with them, but all good things must come to an end. Janice & David are pulling out today and Ed & Debi are leaving on Sunday. But. . . we know we’ll meet up again somewhere along the way!
