Adventures with Cordy, October 10, 1976

[Below is days 34 in a series of road trip diary installments. To get the full context, start with Adventures with Cordy: A Road Trip Diary and follow the trail from there. --Amy]

October 10, (Sunday)

The Motel delivered orange juice and coffee which gave us a pleasant start for our last day of a thirty day trip from Houston and back to Houston. It could have been rather a sad day really but since we considered what a pleasant month it had been some of the sadness evaporated. As everyone knows, good things can't last forever. We journeyed through Louisiana to Woodville, Texas where we had breakfast at the same restaurant, at the same table and almost exactly the same time, 11:00 A.M., as we did on the first day of the trip, thirty-one days ago. On to Kingwood. Our neighbors, Hazel and Bob kept a watchful eye on our home, plants, etc. even installed two windows on our garage. It was a lot of work and expense for them but clearly illustrates what wonderful people they are. We all went to the Log Cabin Restaurant for dinner (family style) and Jack discovered they made five legged chickens because he ate five drumsticks.

The Log Cabin Restaurant is no longer around, which is too bad because I'd love to eat a five-legged chicken.
