Tom and Cecilia took us out to eat at the Kirkland Bar and Steak House. We had invited them but Tom beat us to the check. They have been very good to us. The steaks were cooked on an open pit with real wood - the food was fantastic.
You can see Andi holding her 1987 Christmas Tree in front of the place (just kidding). It was a tumbleweed that rolled in for the picture. The painting with the horses was done by an acquaintance of Cecilia. I loved it because one of the horses looks like Whiskey. Our waitress took Marla and I on a little tour of the place. It was built in the late 1800's, burned in 1922 and rebuilt on the same foundation in 1923. The safe pictured above is an original Wells Fargo safe.
Last but certainly not least is the last painting. The place was a brothel and there was a Madam named Mary. The story is told that Mary had been missing and was found with her throat cut. Years later, there was a filming at the bar and they put the wood siding up covering the walls. If you look in the wood, you can definitely see the face of a woman. They claim that it gets more detailed each year. Of course, they call her Mary and when anything goes wrong at the bar or restaurant, she gets blamed. Weird....huh!!
We ended up taking a couple of extra rest and catch-up days. This allowed us to make some adjustments to the trailer and get things a little more organized. We will be riding out tomorrow so...back on the trail we go.
Love you all;
