Ahhh we are having such a nice time with our RVing buddies, Jim and Dee from the blog
They are full timing RV friends we met through Howard and Linda's http://www.rv-dreams.com/
They are parked here for a while in our driveway in their big fifth wheel RV. We are sure enjoying their company and sharing of stories of places they been and places they are gonna go! We are sure jealous....
She baked the most wonderful rhubarb strawberry pie for dessert... wow it was perfect flaky crust and baked to perfection. What a great treat... I think we will keep her here for a few months if she keeps this up!
Friday was a day to hang out at the house and get some cleaning done for Jim and Dee. Jim got all the vehicles washed while Dee attacked the interior with polishing, cleaning, vaccing and going through cabinets and bins... It's good to do this once a year, if you find things you haven't used in a whole year, it's time to toss em out! We gotta do this to our rig again too. (note to self)
Saturday morning we headed out to Green Bay to get a few things from the local RV store, Van Boxtel RV http://www.vanboxtelrv.com/ We had fun roaming up and down the aisles, drooling over the newest-latest-greatest RVing toys and accessories. Jim and Dee bought a few things to add to their rig. One was an extra door handle for their inside of the screen door. This makes it easier to close from the inside.
After we all dozed off for some little afternoon shut-eye, we old folks decided to get up and out and go for dinner. The heat and humidity are climbing to heights that just make cooking a chore. So Dee and Jim decided they need to take us out for dinner as a treat for staying in our yard. We didn't think they needed to do that, but they insisted. We drove them around a bit to see a few of the sights... and then whisked them off to a special place. You know, Dee LOVES barns.. and snaps pics of them even while driving down the road.
Soooo what better place to take them than THIS????
We are going to eat in a barn?????
YES.. it's a RESTAURANT AND TAVERN IN A BARN!!!!
The slogan of the place is:
"COME, SIT, RELAX AND DRINK
WHERE THE COWS USED TO STINK!"
When you come through the doors, you go down into the lower portion of the barn.. right where the cows were milked and fed and yes... pooped! (it don't stink any more) We bellied up to the bar and had a drink. Both Steve and Dee had a special beer from a local micro-brewery called... what else? SPOTTED COW! Not kidding.. yes, there REALLY is a beer named that!
The decor was definitely "bovine" in theme....
The food was good down-home cooking.... we splurged on broasted chicken
even through Steveio watches his cholesterol, Jim had a steak and Dee had shrimp.
Homemade rolls, salads and soup accompanied the meals and was quite tasty.
We were soooo full!
Ahhhh what a fitting end to a lovely day in rural Wisconsin!
