Day Two on the Yard Sale Trail

Day two of our yard sale adventure began early.  We wanted to get out before the day's record breaking heat was just too much!
Our only plan was to go North on Highway 127.  Our first stop in Albany was the only place we made a purchase.  We stopped at several sales between Albany and Russell Springs/Jamestown  but we did not find a single treasure.  We also safely crossed Wolf River Dam where we noticed they are still adding concrete to keep it from breaking.

 Our favorite store Mighty Dollar has a location in Russell Springs, so of course we made a stop there.
 We continued to stop at some sales, but we were just seeing junk--like old dirty junk and it was getting hot.  Just as we were about to turn around, we saw a sign advertising a place to eat called Bread of Life.  The sign said it was ten miles away and would be worth the drive!
And worth the drive it was.  Bread of Life had a buffet lunch with  salad, soup, pulled pork, chicken, ham, baked potatoes, mac and cheese, fried okra, fresh corn,  baked beans, steak fries and huge yeast rolls.  Dessert included banana pudding, cake,  peach cobbler and fresh cantaloupe.  Soft serve ice cream was also available.  The $8.99  price included a drink.  We're certain we  got our money's worth.
We stopped at a few more spots on the way back, but we have decided we will stay on the south portion of 127 from now on.  We just regret that Bread of Life is too far to visit on a regular basis. By 2:30 we were back home.
Wondering what items we bought today?
We don't normally like cider, but this was purchased from one of Peanut's tax clients.  We tasted all the flavors and this was our choice.

I'm sure this item will be featured in future blog posts!
