Okay, this is a weird post, but what can I say, I fell in love with this 1950's-era Chambers stove in the kitchen of the bed & breakfast in Ashland, Kansas. Chambers stoves, as you probably know, are very cool stoves, and this is the coolest of the cool, because it does all kinds of tricks, and is plated in gen-u-ine copper, and has a secret hiding place where I could put a clue to a murder. Pretty neat-o, eh?
I'm having such a great time. Gorgeous scenery, better weather than anybody could have expected for January in Kansas, and lively, smart, funny, interesting people. I'm lovin' it.
I left Ashland at noon, drove a beautiful country route to Meade, did a gig that included homemade cherry cheesecake, drove to Liberal, just had a beer (yes! not a dry county!) with a rib eye (my fav cut of meat) and mashed potatoes loaded with garlic, cheese, onions, and sour cream, and now I'm fat and happy in a motel. It would take a microscope for me to find one single thing about which to complain on this trip.
Also, nice rental car, thank you, Enterprise.
