Song of the American Road, pt. 4


We are here and it is cool today. We are marked on the map. 1275 miles. -Fran

World's largest cheese kitchen (one of them).

Monday. Had 16 for Sunday dinner. 11 slept in the cabin. Mary and I slept in the car. Her cousin caught a big salmon. Weather is perfect. A little windy today.

Now there are just 6 here. Mary's cousin is here with us. -- Wish you were here. Love -- Linda.

I wanna go on the kind of vacation where you go to the worlds largest cheese kitchen.

mrs.5000 said...

What a lot is implied by passing over the obvious caption ("one of the world's largest cheese kitchens") for the awkwardly confessional narrative of "World's largest cheese kitchen (one of them)".

@Yankee: free curds! large windows overlooking the vats and packaging line! worlds's largest dairy-themed gift shop! and still one of Oregon's most popular attractions.

Have you received any "Cease and Desist" letters from the Tillamook Creamery yet for posting this?

Elaine said...

How bad does your rat race have to be to make godforsaken Dorris, CA, look good?

Ben, do you know about my history with the good folks at the Tillamook Creamery? If not, I have a remarkable coincidence to report.

Yank, we're going on a short trip this weekend that could accomodate you. If you can be in Portland by noon Friday, we'll make your wish come true.

Elaine: Yeah, I was kind of wondering about that too. The Bakers should have gone into a more rewarding career, such as taxidermy.

I'm down with the cheese place. I think I'd be more interested in that than the Grand Canyon.

I'm missing the flags, M5000. Have you given up?
Though people's inane cards never hesitate to amuse me, I can't resist vexiollogy.

Michael5000 said...

Flag Friday III, coming right up.

Yankee in England said...

Well the free curds almost make it worth making it to Portland by noon on Friday. As it is my 30th birthday Friday that would make it extra special. Back to reality I think we will have to wait until after I give birth to the sprog. I am sure he/she will enjoy the free curds though.

Au contraire; Dorris, CA, is calling my name. If this is Main Street, what might lie to the, um, left and right? Where beyond those mountains will the road take me? And when I get back, will the tavern still be open? Oh, duh. Of course it will be.

Dorris rocks.

Jeez ... remind me never to mention the weather if I send a postcard. I don't want to be a cliche!
