Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich x2

My friends Mike and Sel had some folks over to their place after the Carrboro Film Festival last Sunday.  Sel worried that there wasn't enough food and asked if anyone would like her to make some P, B & J's.  Replied Kyle, "You had me at 'P'."


Above, a PB&J at a Flying J Travel Stop somewhere around Nebraska.  At the center of each sandwich, the peanut butter and the jelly were around two-thirds of an inch thick.  That would put me into a coma so fast, but I guess it works for truckers. 

I enjoyed sleeping at several Flying J's while I drove around the US in my Pontiac Vibe with the fold flat seats.  The parking lots seemed safe and the morning showers were big and clean for ~$8.00.  My only problem was on my first Flying J night in Ohio or thereabouts, when the 4 a.m. lawn sprinklers shot through my windows that I'd cracked open for air.  It was a confusing way to wake up.

I love the idea of sleeping in a Flying J parking lot.

I've followed you in blogging . . . and I really should travel this country of ours sometime so I know what I'm talking about.

PB&J's with Ezekiel 4:9 bread are healthy!
