My husband and I took a trip to Lovera's yesterday. He wanted some Italian sausage, and I wanted to see the area.

We took a round about trip, going through Stigler. Now that is one pretty historic town surrounded by rolling hills and large ranches and farms. If were were going to buy a farm we would want to live in that area.

Stigler also has two beautiful historic churches in the downtown area. It isn't a town for tourists, but it is a working town, meaning that you can shop downtown.

We really didn't care for the Krebs, McAlester area. But we didn't go into McAlester or Eufaula. That would be another trip.

The Italian grocery store was cute, but you couldn't have lunch there, had to go to a nearby gas station that they owned and order food. My husband and I shared a sloppy joe that was just wonderful.

But if anyone was interested in farming, that is the place that I would want to live, they have cattle ranches there mostly.

If you ask me, which I realize no one did, I think McAlester is pretty rough. I know there are nicer areas but from what I've seen of it, it wouldn't be my ideal destination. You know what small town I like? Pawnee. I think it's cute because of all the old stuff.

Lovera's is good, but overpriced. Pete's Place is the same, except I like Choc Beer. McAlester is a decent town......and it should be getting better now that the Stipes are pretty much gone.....Gene in the hospital and Francis passed on.......

We made a special trip to Krebs last Spring to take our new DIL to eat Italian food.....always heard how good it was there. The place I had been once upon a time many years ago was closed so we ate at the 'other one' (dont' remember the name....looks like it used to be a funeral home).....what a waste of gas, time, and money! We all 4 had different entrees...and they were all 4 as bad a food as we ever ate....and the service was even worse. Did we just get there on a bad day or do we just not know what 'the real thing' is supposed to taste like?

I didn't find it a very friendly place, but I won't mention names. I wouldn't want to live in the Kreb, McAlester area, and maybe not even Eufaula, but I did love the farm lands east of there.
