We took a little drive for lunch..like about 140 miles! Two years ago, we stopped in a cute little old schoolhouse that was turned into a restaurant. We just happened to be there when they had made split pea and ham soup. It was so good, that for two years we have talked about this darn soup. Well, we called a few days ago to find out what soup they were serving on Tuesday. They said, "what do you want?" The Trout said, "how about split pea and ham?"
We arrived for lunch at this darling little restaurant in Dell, Montana, and coyly asked, "what soup are you serving today?" Well, they did it for us!! Split pea and ham, with so much ham that you almost need a heavy-duty spoon. And, check out the size of the homemade dinner roll. So tall and good, warm, with butter. Just as good as we remembered two years ago!!
I am a reader of all road signs, billboards and personalized license plates. I can't stop myself; it is just something I do, even when I am driving.
A few weeks ago, we were driving along miles and miles of electric fence that housed quite a large herd of buffalo. We knew whose land we were driving by, but it still always amazes me, the wealth that some people have. This sign below was spotted frequently along the electric fence.
Yes, you guessed it. The land belongs to the Ted Turner. Nothing more needs to be said.
Then this morning driving home, we drove past a community dumping area. The sign made me laugh. This is Montana, and they just do things differently than in big towns and cities. You gotta love it!!
