The End of the Trail

We were up at 5 AM today, Guess why? Ashley had to leave us and fly home to Florida today. Boy 5 in the morning is much earlier than it used to be when I was workin' & doin' it everyday. We made a quick stop at Micky D's for some go food and were off to Pittsburgh. It seems a little bit much to arrive two hours before flight time and sit around waiting.  Well Ashley didn't seem reluctant to board the plane even though she has never flown before. I think she missed her Mom and was ready to go home. We had a good time with her and I think she had a good time too.

I called her after she arrived home asking how her flight went. She said "Great, especially the takeoff and landing. We were glad she enjoyed it and now has some flying experience under her belt.  Maybe next time she will be flying out to the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone or other points west.

After her flight left we headed back up the road. Linda wanted to stop along the way at another spot on the 'Triple D Tour'. Kelly O's was featured on Diners, Drive Ins & Dives on the Food Network. We wanted to sample Haluski, Polenta and Turkey Pot Pie soup. Linda ordered the Haluski and soup, while I ordered a Hot Italian Sausage Sub as the Polenta didn't seem exciting after all. Well out of all the stops Guy has provided on his show, this is only the second time we have been disappointed. The soup was a joke, frozen veggies, a few bits of turkey with some pieces of pie crust on top. The Haluski was OK, but was mostly noodles with a smattering of cabbage and bacon. Definitely not worth the $7.99 price. My sub was served on a hot dog bun and fell apart shortly after pickin' it up. It came with fries but again not worth the $7.99 price. In all lunch cost us $26 and I would have been better off grabbin' a burger from a fast food joint and throwin' the rest of my money in the Allegheny river.




If you ever by this way and see this sign, drive by, FAST.




Well we'll see what tomorrow brings. Until then we hope to see ya' down the road as we're,

Dancin' on the Wind.
