Weekend Roundup

 Welcome to The Weekend Roundup...hosted by Tom The Back Roads Traveler

My last rounds were coffee and beer. So it's time for some food and sleep!

1. Starts with "A"
2. A Favorite
3. AMPLE chosen by Tom

Starts with "A"
ATLANTIC seems like an odd name in Iowa.
Atlantic was founded in October 1868 by Franklin H. Whitney, B.F. Allen, John P. Cook, and others. While historians cannot agree on how Atlantic got its name, local legend tells that the founding fathers estimated that the town was about halfway between the Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean, so it led them to flip a coin and, clearly, Atlantic won.

AUDUBON is named for John James Audubon the world-famous ornithologist, artist, and painter.


There is an AMPLE ARRAY of AROMATIC AROMAS at the perfume factory in Grasse France on the French Riviera.

Déjà Brew
A catchall for leftover beer, coffee, food, motels and whatever catches my fancy!
Cornville ARIZONA


  1. I would of checked out the adorable patio.
    Coffee is on and stay safe

  2. Very interesting posts tonight, Jackie, I love coming here. I don't know either about Atlanta, even though I grew up in neighboring Nebraska I just took it for granted. I hope you were invited to visit inside the factory. Must be interesting .

  3. ...AN interesting story about the origin of ATLANTIC, Iowa. AUDUBON sure made a name for himself. ADORABLE is a great A word. AN AMPLE ARRAY of AROMATIC AROMAS, you win!!! The ARIZONA sign is neat. Thanks Jackie for sharing, take care.

  4. I lived in Arizona for more that 15 years and never heard of Cornville. I had to google it! I've been to Sedona and Cottonwood, many times, it looks kind of close to both of those towns. I love Sedona! Have a good week, Jackie!

  5. Now I want to go enjoy a glass of wine in the 'adorable' patio. Sounds like the perfect place to relax!
