Windshield Wonders....


There I sat behind a red car, staring at the sky and reaching for my little red camera. Straight through, looking neither to the right or left....

I sat the camera on the steering wheel and drove my favorite street to my favorite place.



See that blue at the end of the street? that is where I will find my favoirite...
OOPS! wrong Wendy

Wendy's Burgers. Right there under our December sky, waiting for me to sit in line behind 6 cars for a total of 14 cars. YES. I counted them. It took less than 6 minutes for 7 of us...

 I get the number 2 which is a double burger, fries and a drink plus two Frosties. We put them in the freezer for a late afternoon snack since we skip dinner when we have lunch from here. Bob eats his double, I remove one burger and divide it between the two dogs.

Of course they get burger, if we are going to die from Cholestrol Overload, they will to, I mean who would take care of them..

Wendy's is a blast from the past as we don't have them over here anymore. Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly

Pretty drive to your Wendy's. Wendy's is our closest restaurant and we go get meals and bring them home often. I love the cheapo chicken sandwich!

Montanagirl said...

The nearest Wendy's to us would probably be a couple hundred miles away. When I have eaten there, the food was pretty good, esp. the fries.

You are quite the statistician, Sandra. That is a long queue. And I LOVE that you share your dinner with the dogs. Last night at the Mongolian BBQ Grant held at the Guest House, the resident dog, Nando hung around me. Now why, since I'm a vegetarian? Well, I kept sliding strips of raw pork, beef and chicken strips from the marinaded dishes into his jaws! Have a great Saturday. Jo

I am so hungry! Your dogs must be in heaven getting their share :-). Great shots of your neighborhood.

MS as per usual you post is very very unique and creative!!! I love Wendy's frosty too. I know those pups know how lucky they are to have such a loving MS in their lives.
Yes it is any stamps and you can just accumulate over the year too.
We have determined that Madi shuns all things white. Often when I have a light colored towel on the beds she sits on the bedspread

I just order their chilly and a salad. I have never loved burgers that much. The buns get too siggy and all becomes a mess for me. And I hate drive throughs now. The fumes from cars ahead make me dizzy:(
Buddy and hubby love burgers but rarely choose Wndy's. They like Harvey's and Jack's, a new place close to the office.

We have a Wendy's near us but is undergoing a reno so not open right now. Oh well. the place should be much nicer when it reopens.

Ginny said...

I GUESSED it! I ACTUALLY guessed it! When you said it is your favorite place, I did not read ahead and I knew it was Wendys. O.K. a question of most importance...what is your favorite flavor Frosty? The trip is downright GORGEOUS!!! Beauty everywhere. Our Wendys is very slow and the workers get confused and know nothing. You can wait forever. But we go sometimes because I like the baked potatoes, plus the child's frosty is low calorie.

We do not have Wendy's here.

We do have a Dairy Queen who just built in summer but know business for them it seems. We see 3 cars max.

The town people are supporting our village small business's. That is great.

Now my daughters she has every known business stores going and food places like Wendy's. She lives 7 minutes by car from her place. Of course everyone loves Wendy's in my family but me. I am a McDonald nut. I love the fish on a bun and fries but I must say Wendy's fries are good. I like softies at McDonald's hubby likes the frosties at Wendy.s when we are in that town. So he runs over to Wendy's . I run over to McDonald most times next door then we bring it home . Other times I eat Wendy Fries with him inside building.

I enjoyed your pictures Sandra.

SweetMarie said...

I was thinking that your favorite place would be home or Wendy's. :) I like pics of where you're going, this is how I travel. lol We have a Wendy's at the corner by our house, about a quarter mile and we all like it. :) I bet Wendy's is your pups favorite as well. :)

Ruth Hiebert said...

The roadside scenery is beautiful. It is not good for me to be reading this when I have not had lunch and am feeling rather hungry.

Gail said...

Wendy's is about 45 minutes away.

I like that you share.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I love Wendy's burgers...so much that I doubt I could share one. lol! Love that gorgeous sky out your car window. We haven't seen anything but clouds here lately. Send some Florida sunshine my way, please!!

Linda said...

I love Wendy's TOO!!! Louis Dean - not so much! I think HE thinks it's too healthy for him!! He's a Whataburger fan! Ilike BOTH!! I realize I am hungry for a burger now! It's nearly bedtime and we ate a late lunch so no dinner. Maybe we'll do a late night burger run! It's been known to happen!

Ann said...

I haven't had anything from Wendy's in ages. Yet another thing Wade doesn't like. I don't know how you could not like a Wendy's burger. I'll have mine with mayo and onion

Deb said...

The fur babies need a treat too! Atleast that is Roosters way of thinking

Betty Manousos said...

now i am hungry!

have a great remainder of your weekend!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Yum! I haven't had a Wendy's in a long time but I have always loved them. I agree with sharing with the dogs.....

Susannah said...

Hi there.....computer had to go into the repair shop for a few days! I have to admit ....we go to Wendy's sometimes and WE LIKE IT ALOT! For sure...not good for us but they are tasty!

pattisjarrett said...

Glad you're looking out for the dogs, too! ;)

SquirrelQueen said...

I am enjoying your gorgeous blue skies. We have had either rain or thick fog for several days now and I'm really missing sunshine.

Wendy's is one of my favorite places but the one we had here closed. Of course they had the worse service of any place I have ever seen and could never get orders right. Do miss their burgers however.

Cranberry Morning said...

Right! Who would take care of the dogs? Lol You're a good dog mama. So do they get a French fry or two off Bob? Your photos are gorgeous! Looks like something we once had up here... summer, I think it was called.

What is it the put in Frosties that makes them So Good!

diane b said...

Thanks for the ride to the hamburger place. Sure looks like a big snack. While in USA we couldn't get used to the huge size of meals served. I would be sharing half my burger with the dogs too.

Ida said...

You crack me up. Funny about the dogs getting a burger. Once at the DQ I saw a lady in front of me ordering 2 Ice Cream Cones. She promptly held one out for the dog to eat as she drove off!
Our Wendy's closed (they were dealing drugs out of it) so no Frosty's here and my hubby loved them.

Dee said...

I may get me a Wendys tomorrow...I like them and I pass them all the time. Love the logic of the cholesterol and your dog...HEE HEE . Actually there is a lot of smarts to the thinking. :) Your favorite street is pretty...so drastically different from mine :) At that blue sky....I rarely see blue.

Debra Dickinson said...

Good for the puppies! :) We only have a DQ & a Whataburger here. Have to drive 30 miles for anything else, including Wendy's. LOL. Love their frosty - found this recipe recently that's supposed to be the same but haven't tried it yet.

1/2 gal. chocolate milk
1 (14 oz.) can Eagle Brand milk
1 (8 oz.) Cool Whip

Mix well and freeze. Mixture does not get hard, more like a thick milk shake.

Betty Manousos said...

just wanted to say that that baby bone ornament is priceless!
awesome header:))

Just Me Pooh said...

Thank you sweet Sandra for sharing that gorgeous scenery on your way to your favorite place to eat. I have not eaten at Wendy's in years. The last time we ate at our local Wendy's I almost fell. I had on rubber sole shoes and still slid the floor was so greasy. I said I would never go back and won't to that one. So it is unlikely I will ever eat at Wendy's again. That is a great idea to share with those sweet fur babies. I should order double burgers and split one with Chancy and Baby Boy, they would love that. Hugs

Chatty Crone said...

We have about 4 Wendy's around here - love those Frosty's!

And you have things planned out don't you?
