I love day-tripping with my hubby, even if it is raining. We headed down I-70 Saturday to Blue Springs, which is near KC, to get new tires put on our car.
Our son told us where we could get tires at a savings of $240, if we got them before the end of the sale, so we didn't mind driving several miles to save that much money.
Brett met us at the tire shop and while we were waiting for the tires to be put on, he drove us to Plowboys BBQ for lunch. I chose a 2 meat sandwich of pulled chicken and sausage with cheesy potatoes as my side. It was very good!
After lunch, I told the guys that I'd like to take a little stroll around the Brass Armadillo, so off we went just a couple of miles away to check it out.
Do you ever wonder how names are chosen for businesses? I do. And I have learned that this antique mall is one of a chain of 6 malls across the country.
This wasn't my first visit to this antique mall, but when you step inside it is quite large and jam packed with booths filled with everything imaginable. We got through about half of the mall before the tire shop called to tell us that the car was ready to go.
I enjoyed the day in spite of the rain, which wasn't all that heavy. It's just the spray from the traffic on the interstate that makes the driving a little more nerve-wracking, but we made it back home safe and sound.
We found Miss Stormy sleeping on the basement steps with her favorite mouse. After the drive home, we were ready for a nap, too.
Fast forward to today, we had more rain last night and some expected later today. The pond is full now after being so very low and that is good. I've noticed the grass is getting more green each day. Spring is on the way!
Happy Wednesday to you!
