40. Simplicity (Week 38)

“Engine engine number 9, going down Chicago line.  If the train should leave the track, do you want your money back?”  “One potato, two potato, three potato, four;  five potato, six potato, seven potato, ‘oer.”    ‘…My mother told me to choose the very best one and out goes you.” ~ How children choose who is “It” ~

A stop at Cracker Barrel can take you back, way back, to a time when life was simpler.  The rocking chairs invite you to pull up by the fireplace or on the porch and play a game of checkers.  The triangle peg games on the tables take you back to a time before the internet, ipads, and  cell phones…   A time of simple games, sitting on the curb;  playing hide and seek, hopscotch, Simon Says, red light green light, and kickball until after dark.  And so we ended our “Maids on the Trace” vacation with lunch at Cracker Barrel – our final stop over the  Memorial Day weekend.  Next stop  – Home Sweet Home.
