Madison isn’t feeling good today, (running a temp and says her belly hurts), so Papaw Rick and I decided to take her on a picnic and try to cheer her up and make her feel better. We have always enjoyed stopping along side the road on Rt 58 (Jeb Stuart Hwy), also known as Straight Branch. This road certainly isn’t straight, but has always been a beautiful place with road-side tables for travelers to stop and eat a bite.
Well, we stopped and picked up some food and were on our way. We knew where we wanted to stop, but when we arrived, no table could be found, so we jouryned further along and to our surprise there were no tables anywhere. Disappointment set in real fast so we pulled off onto a road leading to Beartree Lake and stopped to eat. I put down a blanket for Madison, but she wasn’t happy with it…she wanted back in the car to eat her corndog. Rick and I stood at the hood of the car and ate.
Next time we will just go to the park where we know there are tables. I have no idea why they left the signs showing where the tables were, but took the tables. Today just was not a great day for the picnic, so maybe next time Madison will feel better. Love you pretty girl !!!
