My ride with the Northwest Arkansas Miata Club

During the Labor Day weekend, my hubby and I drove to AR to help my Dad celebrate his birthday and to participate in a Miata Club scavenger hunt and ride.

The scavenger hunt was a fast food run. Each clue had three parts; the first part gave the hint to which fast food restaurant. The second part gave hints as to the specific one. (Couldn’t go to just any McDonalds) Then the third part gave the clue for what to buy. Every item was under a dollar. Dad and I had a good time but without an iPhone in an unfamiliar city… we didn’t stand a chance. LOL

On the way home, Dad drove me down the mountain from Fayetteville on hwy 71. Can’t say how fast we were going, but weeeeeeeeeee!!! It was exhilarating!

The members of the club are wonderful, charming folks and I thoroughly enjoyed my day with them.

I created this custom ornament for him for his birthday gift and also made it available to the club members.



  1. WHAT fun; I bet your dad so enjoyed your visit. Love the ornament you made for him - sounds like a great time!!

  2. Sandy, it sounds like you had such fun with your dad and I know you were so happy to be able to spend time with him. I love this new ornament, what a great idea! Just popped by to say hi and let you know you're a great blogger!

  3. Bonjour Sandy,
    Just found your great blog via Debra at Shabby Cottage Shops. You all must have found so much fun with your Dad. Your ornaments are so well done, I just came from your website, and you have an incredible collection. I love the new candy cane ornaments.
    Been trying to invite you as a FB Friend, but it dosen't seem to be working.
    I'm a new follower, and will be back soon.

  4. Looks like you had a good time! You should make cop ornaments to chase after the speedy ones:) And then an ambulance ornament to help out when there's a wreck... I think I'll stop right there before this joke causes a wreck.


Thank you for your comments... they encourage me to keep writing and posting. :-)
