Fun, Yummy Discovery

Back to the perky. On the ride home Laura and I stopped in Staunton, Virginia. It's pretty much the middle of nowhere, but in Staunton was the highlight of our drive: Kline's Dairy Bar. It's a wonderful little creamery. It's attached to a barbecue restaurant with six items on the menu: two kinds of barbecue, hot dogs, cheeseburgers, breaded chicken breast on a bun, and chicken nuggets. Best of all, tater tots are one of the side-dish options. Laura and I only hopped off the interstate to get gas, but Kline's looked interesting and it was conveniently near lunchtime so we decided to give it a try. And it made us extremely happy. There are a few Kline's locations in the area; if you find yourself in central Virginia, it's worth the trip.

Also of the much fun: Young's Dairy, not far from Springfield, Ohio. Hop off I-70 at the Xenia and go south a few miles; you can't miss it. We didn't stop on this trip, because we were both pretty desperate to be home. But if you're in the neighborhood, it's a worthwhile detour off the interstate. The food is great, the ice cream is the best anywhere, and they even have a putt-putt course. You can't do better than that.
