We’re doing something new with the Brag Basket. The Brag Basket is going on a tour, visiting and celebrating our readers. This week, we’re off to Cuba, Missouri. Our reader Jane S. Reed is a tireless supporter and promoter of Cuba, and she sent us not one, but a truck load of links to good stuff in Cuba.
The Root 66 Market is a fledgling outdoor market on Route 66 in Cuba, Missouri, “Route 66 Mural City.”
Here’s some of their fruit on hand. They take orders and deliver produce and encourage local growers to sell at the outdoor weekend market. They are on Facebook on https://www.facebook.com/Root66Market
If you come to Cuba, you can also see our outdoor murals and other public art. Get a preview at www.cubamomurals.com. We are also on Facebook as Cuba MO Murals & More: https://www.facebook.com/cubamomurals.
Visit the oldest continuously operating motel on Route 66–The Wagon Wheel Motel. They are on Facebook as Historic Wagon Wheel Motel featuring Connie’s Shoppe at www.facebook.com/HistoricWagonWheelMotelFeaturingConniesShoppe.
And no one misses a photo opportunity at the 42 foot World’s Largest Rocking Chair at the Fanning 66 Outpost: http://www.fanning66outpost.com.
The Belmont Winery & Vineyard is on Route 66 just out of Cuba and is a great place to spend the afternoon and hear some music. http://www.belmontvineyards.com
Come spend a couple of days. We also have a museum, art studio, and more. Did I mention that we are a town of only 3400? You don’t get much smaller than that. And we are strivin’ to survive.
Yes, we’re still doing our traditional sharing in the Brag Basket, too. This basket is free and open all weekend, June 28-30, 2013.
What good news will you add to the brag basket?
Don’t hold back because of that word, “brag.” When you hold back, you hide your good news and accomplishments that might inspire others. Even though I call this the Brag Basket, it’s not really about bragging. It’s about sharing.
What can you do in the Brag Basket?
- introduce yourself
- share some great news from this week
- congratulate a friend
- laugh about something wonderful that you tried that failed
- applaud for each other
Speak up and add yourself or another deserving soul in the comments. It lets you meet each other a bit. Reading each others’ stories brings us a bit closer to being a community.
How does it work? You write a comment on this post. We all cheer, and everyone feels great.
This is not an ad. (I delete the ads.) If you talk more about the people involved than the things, you’ll be fine.
It’s a conversation with friends. So jump in. And remember to cheer for each other.
