Fascinating pictures. I'd love to stop by Lambarts. We were going to, when trucking once, but didn't have time.

Nice pics.  If they throw a roll at you and you drop it do you get another one?

Hey Dee ;o)
Thank you for the visuals to be found in Alabama. Of course, I have to believe I would be scared of the flying rolls. Thats some eating pressure!

Oh how I love this entry.  Pompeii has always interested me.  If I were close enough I would certainly visit this exhibit.  I'm very glad you put Lamberts in there too.  I had forgotten it.  Never been but I'm putting it on my "to see" list. Next time we "go south" I intend to eat there.  Thanks
