Carolyn Westbrook: The computer crashed and so did I

Friends, Sorry that my countdown to Warrenton, came to a hault. It has been a tough time around here. My computer decided to crash at the same time, I did. I woke feeling like death on Sunday and was scavenging the house for the kid's leftover antibiotics. Those of you that are Moms know exactly what I am talking about. I found some and took that along with everything else that I could think of. Felt better than death a few hours later, but still horrible. Now those who know me know that I would rather have my arm chopped off than go to the doctor, but this time I had to go. I took my computer to the Dr. first and then headed to the local convient care clinic. Got there at 8:30 am and they said that I would have to wait until 3:00 pm perhaps later, to be seen. (Are you kidding me???)I made an appointment for my regular Doctor in Frisco (1.5 hrs from here) and dragged myself up there. Turns out that I was really sick. Got lots of medicine and trying to get over this. I HATE BEING SICK and this is not the time. I have things that have to get done, as we start loading the 26 ft. truck this weekend.

Moving on. Let's move on to the countdown. Next, if you are in for inspiration, you have to go see Mark Dooley's field, which sits on the East side of clutter on the corner of 237. You will see the metal buildings and this is the designer district. Lots of high end Fabulous European finds to be found here. (Picture left)

If you and your friends are looking for a cup of coffee and a great breakfast one morning, then head to Roundtop square to Klumps. It is a down home little building with simple breakfast fare. You will be greeted with mismatched tables, chairs, and old-timey hardwood floors... these folks know how to cook a good breakfast. My only warning, and I hope that they do not take offense, is make sure you have plenty of time. This is not a fast paced city restaraunt. It is worth the wait!

While tooling down the road back toward Warrenton from Klumps, make sure to stop at the "Texas Rose" show. It is worth stopping for. They have several tents and buildings, and many of my friends are here. They know how to put on a show. I think one of the best shows here. So, be sure to check it out and tell Lily and Margaret that Carolyn sent you!

XOXO Carolyn
