Used to stop when the older building was there. This new facility is much nicer, a world of difference. The ladies allowed me to sit inside at one of the homemade tables where I setup my picnic style lunch and visited with those who came and went on their travels. A perfect afternoon on my way home to Claremore after a week in Texas visiting friends. After lunch I filled two of their special sacks with ten jars of delicacies from a special shelf in the shop. Pickled garlic pods, gone, pickled veggies, gone, peach, apricot preserves, partly gone. Pear butter 1/2 gone. Three kinds of salsa, mild, medium and hot. Mild and medium gone consumed. Hot looking at me! Need to have more garlic and veggies shipped in as a bit too far to drive to fetch a new supply. I'll look around here and see if buy able online. The two ladies were a delight to be around and they humoresque this old man while he recalled the days of his youth on trips with his folks and siblings stopping to setup for a roadside picnic. Thanks ladies for your hospitality. My day was made.
