We just returned from a 4+ day roadtrip that took in Northern Missouri and it's immediate neighbors. On the first day out (Wed.) we had arranged to meet Bushie and his family as they headed for Tennessee. It was appropriate that our meeting was focused on a dinner at the Moonlite BBQ in Owensboro, KY.
All of the 'Bushies', Mark and his lovely wife and daughter were really fun to meet and greet. We also appreciated his warm Texas Hospitality, with the samples of BBQ sauce and Preserves...all of which will be put to good use.
I had read the notes posted about the difference between the Corn Sweetened Dr Pepper, and the D.P. that uses Cane Sugar. Janet and I put it to the taste test while on the road...and Guess What?? There is a real difference !! I noticed the famous "Prune" aftertaste in the Cane Sugar Soda, that was absent in that made with Corn Sweetener. ( Yes, I know, there is no prune-anything in Dr Pepper) But the taste is there.
Thanks Bushie for your kind gestures, and the pleasant evening we shared. Photo's will be added When Bushie gets home, cuz I use his website for the base of operations for the photo additions.
We did include stops at Bubba's in Hannibal,MO and of course, Arthur Bryant's in KC. The main theme in this trip was rail photography for me, and flea market shopping for Janet. It is remarkable how those two activities seem to go 'Hand in Glove' in that Amish-filled area !! Our daily diet was filled with Amish baked goods purchased from a variety of roadside stands, with cold meats and fruit available almost everywhere! Combine that with a chance to stay by the Santa Fe (BNSF) mainline..with it's 60+ trains a day, makes for an active time for all. 1750 miles of relaxing fun!
