A Trip To Chicago

Wade’s latest project is the closet doors in the Master Bedroom. When we bought the house the his and her closets had lime green trim and bi-fold doors that didn’t fit. Wade has been on the hunt for some antique pocket doors for his master plan (I’ll wait till it’s finished to explain). We have been to two local salvage places, but they didn’t have what Wade wanted. He finally found a place called Jan’s Antiques in Chicago. We got there and found a warehouse full of “stuff”. Jan was super nice and very spry for a little old lady. She and Wade moved and shuffled heavy doors while I stood in the corner and kept my breakfast down. We eventually found some doors, did a little dealing, and got a free window to boot. Too bad we didn’t have a similar place when we were redoing our last house!

On the way home we stopped at Cracker Barrel. I have never been to a Cracker Barrel that wasn’t quite right. Wade’s gravy wasn’t seasoned. My ham biscuits were served as flat biscuits (not fluffy) and a side of ham. The hashbrown casserole tasted the same – thank goodness.
