Antique malls, adult book stores and armadillos

Afternoon! Just checking in from the road. After my meatball sub lunch at work yesterday I was all caught up with my work and was able to leave work early which made all the difference, we didn’t have hardly any traffic and we made it to St. Louis last night.

I ate lunch around 12:15, the subs were a big hit, but who doesn’t love a sub sandwich? Oh, that would be Tony! Italian and he doesn’t like balls!


We pretty much drove straight through, so by the time we settled into our hotel and went to eat, it was nearly 8:30! We were hangry!


We started with beer, I got Summer Shandy on tap. So good but I can usually only drink one because its very lemony.

I got a grilled chicken sandwich with pepperoncini, really hit the spot!


We got up early. Our hotel had free breakfast so we each had a small bagel and coffee. Since Tony drove the whole time last night I offered to start the driving today.

Only one tiny problem with that. Tony hates how I drive. I drive too slow, make the wrong lane changes, etc. Lets face it, men and women are completely different drivers!

We stopped after I drove for four hours and got lunch. This place was half KFC and half Long John Silvers. I picked the obvious best choice:


If given the choice, which would you choose? We just entered Oklahoma, a state I have never been to before!

So I will do what I did yesterday when Tony was driving, pin shit on Pinterest!

Are you wondering what the blog post title is about? We are on I-44 and all we see are signs for antique malls, adult book stores, and we have seen a dozen dead armadillos on the road. Crazy!

This is the first time I have posted from my phone, so that’s why the pictures are marginal at best. I will post from my laptop on Monday, but wanted to wish you all a happy weekend. Hugs!!

  1. The subs look great!! I can’t believe Tony doesn’t like balls. If my choices were KFC or Long John….I would get a diet coke πŸ˜‰ Safe travels!

  2. Long Johns all the way! What is your final destination? You were right by me driving through OK!

  3. Yummmmmmy LJS! I love the chicken planks cold, drizzled, okay, doused with malt vinegar. Have a relaxing trip and enjoy the time with Charlie & family.

  4. Hope you have a great time in Austin! Summer Shandy is one of my favorite, perfect on a hot day. We have the half KFC half LJS in the town where I work, I always goes with LJS, and it’s the best of both worlds because I get KFC cole slaw which I love.

  5. Sounds like you are making great time getting to Austin. When we travel, JP usually does the driving….being an old race car driver….he likes to drive!!! Which is ok with me, especially going through big cities like Chicago…..uge people drive soooo fast!!!

    Food looks de-lish! KFC would be my choice.

    You all have a great vacation!!

  6. Welcome to Oklahoma! I’m in Tulsa.

  7. Austin is one of my favorite cities ever!! Have a great time there!
    And, LJS -fish!!

  8. I don’t like how Tom drives either πŸ™‚ I didn’t even know Long John Silvers was still a thing so I would definitely choose it over KFC! I hope you are enjoying your vacation.

  9. My vote is for Long John Silvers! We used to have one here but it’s been gone for years now. Hope you’re having fun πŸ™‚

    Safe travels! Enjoy your trip!

  11. I am about to sound like a shut-in because I’ve never had Long John Silvers or Kentucky Fried Chicken. I know. When I need a fast food fix it’s either McDonald’s or Wendy’s. I’m a creature of habit.

    Brent hated my driving too. We used to drive 18 hours to Florida and back every year and he drove the whole time. Both ways. I swear, my driving is really NOT that bad.

  12. I’m with Elizabeth – haven’t had either! Growing up when we would pick up drive through chicken it was always Popeyes. Those biscuits….!

    Hope you continue to have a safe trip!

  13. You’re in the great Sooner State! Yeah! Just beware of tornadoes! (The Hubs HATES the way I drive too.) Be safe! (And, we do offer more than antique malls and adult bookstores) πŸ™‚

  14. I’ve never been to Long John Silver’s so I’d probably try there. Have a safe trip! Also, when I first saw the title of your post, I thought it said antique balls. LOL I guess you can tell where my mind is this morning!

  15. I think I would do Long John Silver’s too. Safe travels.

  16. I drive fast and fairly aggressively. It’s because I grew up and learned how to drive in Seattle. You have to be fast and aggressive or you’ll cause an accident! LOL My boyfriend does not drive like that and it makes me crazy. πŸ™‚

  17. Hope you had a safe trip. Look forward to your vacation posts.
