We've all been there . . . l o s t.I ordered a BV menu special--a Spicy Anasazi Burger--and N ordered the Walla Walla Sweet Onion Cheese Burger with a blackberry shake. For those diners who are all about texture, the bean burger many not be for you, but I enjoyed the spicy flavor and healthy alternative to a hamburger or deep-fried fish/chicken patty. N said that the onions really stood out on his cheeseburger--in a good way. He always appreciates the slice of real cheese he gets at BV, too. The fries were hot, and not overly greasy. The passenger in back (otherwise known as the reason for the trip) savored her Mocha Perk Shake on the road home.
Lost with no one available we can ask directions. No matter how much prep you've done for your short or long trip, it's bound to happen at some point. Oh the stress of navigating!
A year and a half ago, our youngest child (adult now) began a pain filled journey that has required us to drive to many doctor appointments all over Salem and Portland. I'm not complaining. I'd do anything for my child, but there is stress piled on top of stress when you find yourself in those inevitable dead end neighborhoods. Dear sweet N gave me a b-day gift last fall that ranks in my top ten--a TomTom GPS. I programmed him to speak with a British accent and call him Reggie. And now, even though N also relies on him, I think he's a bit jealous of this relationship.
In the beginning we would second guess Reggie. We know better now. Online we found a helper app to get us to the nearest Costco gas station and recently discovered that Reggie knows the way to BurgerVille. :>) That's where we asked him to direct us after Wednesday's Portland appointment.Thanks, Reggie, for making a stressful day less so.
