Brent's Drug, Jackson, Mississippi



Brent's Drug, in Jackson, Mississippi, they are on "FB" & "Twitter". I am not great with names, but I will always remember your face ...the waitress we had was the bestest, she was so kind, made me laugh until I almost cried. You see we have been to the restaurant twice ...1st time we got the best LAMB burger, collard greens & a sauce named "ComeBack Sauce". I have an idea of what "ComeBack Sauce" is made from but ...I bet it is a big secret ...let me tell ya, I will be coming back when I am in Jackson again. This would have been our 3rd trip there but I believe it was last year or was it the year before, any who they had a roof leak and that made it so we couldn't go. I follow them on FB and thankfully saw that announcement there. So I had been waiting 3 yrs to have another LAMB burger, collard greens... NOW GUESS WHAT? they no longer sell the LAMB burger & they were out of the collard greens???! WHAT? not kidding. : (




This meal was great, we didn't eat it all, took some leftovers for the nextdays lunch BUT I will be still dreaming of that LAMB burger forever & ever. See below my sad face (or food art, if you please.) made from ComeBack/Hamburger. Just Kidding!! I still love Brent's Drug. On the menu is their story (history) of how they all got started (if we are recalling correctly) in 1948, they were the 1st shopping center in Jackson, a drug store with a soda fountain. Lost the drug store & became totally a diner ...if someone is out there who know the full story... You will please tell me. Going totally on memory. ( :


I remember before I left to take a pic of the front of the diner, when we were 1st looking for a new truck to pull our Casita, I told the hubby I wanted something without an antenna 'cause they always get in my pics some how, darn antenna there it is??! nuts!!! Thank you for stopping by, hope I didn't make ya too hungry? Beth ( ;

Biedenharn Museum & Gardens, Monroe, Louisiana





"Biedenharn Museum & Gardens", Monroe, Louisiana. Want a 5 cent Coke? They have them at this museum. I always think it is interesting now different Coke tastes, depending on if you are drink from a can, bottle, restaurant, etc.?

"In 1894, Joseph A. Biedenharn, a country businessman in Vicksburg, Mississippi and owner of the Biedenharn Candy Company, made a world changing decision. In order for his customers outside downtown Vicksburg to have Coca-Cola, he had his brother Herman put Coca-Cola into Biedenharn bottles, making the Biedenharn Candy Company the first to ever bottle Coca-Cola. Today, Coca-Cola is sold in more than 200 countries.
 
Under Joe's leadership, his brothers, sons, and grandsons, established plants in Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, and Arkansas eventually becoming the ninth largest bottling corporation in the United States." 

The lady pictured was our tour guide in the museum, she was super sweet. Did you know that they made a Coke bottle to look like that dress in the picture? So cool, sadly it didn't last. Oh well, it was a great idea. Very creative. Did you know that plastic bottle start out as those tubes? WHAT??! really, I love learning. Hope you enjoyed learning too!



We were only allowed to take pics of the gardens, none within the home. There were so many amazing pieces of art and furniture that I wish I could share with you, you really must make a visit asap. You will love it! Mr. Biedenharn was a super smart man, what a great idea!! I wish I could think of something so unique. Come on brain, work with Beth. ( ;

Daingerfield State Park, Texas




This is a new Texas state park to us, we have never traveled with our kayaks before, since we now have a Ford F150, got that extra space, the truck bed 2 store those kayaks. I posted a list of states we have kayaked below my posts, just for fun to keep up with the states we have & have not kayaked ast of yet. For the longest time it was only VIRGINIA, now we are making progress. "Daingerfield State Park", Texas. It was a gorgeous April day. 




Please enjoy this video of my kayaking bit around the lake. I have a new camera & I am getting use to it, this video ended up being a quicker one than I did realize it was, next time a longer one for sure.Thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed day! Beth ( :

Dr. Pepper Museum, Waco, Texas




"Dr. Pepper Museum", Waco, Texas. Many folks are shocked to hear we love all sorts of soda. They just assume since we are Coke fans that we would never drink Pepsi or other kinds of sodas. But we do. What's your favorite beverage?

I so want a pair of those Squirt cowboy boots, aren't they just the coolest thing you have ever seen? Real stylish. Don't you think that the museum will at least allow me to borrow them??! Thanks for visiting today, hope you are well. Take care. Beth ( :
