Roads Once Traveled

farm signI have two best friends I've known nearly all of my life. One I met in 1964, the other in 1967.

The latter came and spent the day with me last weekend. We packed a picnic lunch and set out to drive the back roads of our youth.

It was a gorgeous sunny fall day and the leaves have finally begun to turn here. We started our trip by turning up the road behind the old Bruno School and driving up on Pea Ridge and on towards Tomahawk Ridge.

My father was the bus mechanic/bus driver for the old Bruno School, so I know most of old the bus routes in the area. Renee Loftin Wiley's dad was the principal of said school, and she also traveled many of the roads with him on visits.

Our first stop was the old Pea Ridge School House. According to my Daddy, this building was multi-functional.
