Sunday on the way home from our Sunday lunch with the gang at T.J. Rockers we rode down 79 and I captured the Brownwood Barn. I think this barn is so pretty. I wanted to get it while we had some sun. I knew it would not be there much this week.
Monday was bowling night for this week. We have 15 teams and there are only 12 lanes at our alley's so every so many weeks three teams bowl on Monday night. This week was our week. My team is comprised of MaeLynn and Jerry Wayne O'Neil, Frank and I and we call ourselves 2 Queens and 2 Jokers. Bet you can't guess who is who. Our bowling night routine is pretty much the same each week. Frank takes me to work and comes and gets me at the end of the day, we visit my mom, we do errands if we have any, we go out to eat, we bowl, we go home. This week we decided to eat at Big B Bar B Que. It is one of our favorite Alex City restaurants. They moved a little over a year ago and when they did the new decor is what you see in my pictures. There are tons of stuffed critters all over the walls like the bison and moose head I shot. The chandeliers are made from deer antlers and the chairs and tables are made from trees....literally. There is one huge papa chair there....it weighs a ton and they are most uncomfortable to me. We like to sit in the booths. They have padded seats. The wooden Indian graces the front door welcoming the customers in. The food is good and the staff is very friendly. Our favorite is Teresa....when we come in....she does not even have to ask what we want to drink....she just brings it. Ahh....that is service in a small town.
The rain has begun and I found this great sign and decided I would use it on Tuesday this week instead of Saturday. I read it as I was going by...."God is No Where....Read Again". I actually turned around and went back and took a picture of it and read it again. I was beginning to think this little Baptist Church had made a graveous error....when it finally dawned on me what it said...."God is Now Here!"-
I gave Frank and Keurig for our anniversary. I know....eight years should be bronze....but he wanted one so I got it for him. He worked on Friday getting his coffee station all set up. I did not buy him the little coffee tree...he went to Wal-mart and got that himself. I have to admit that the coffee is good and a lot hotter than a traditional coffee maker....and we have Earl Gray tea AND hot chocolate too. This might turn out to be a great purchase. I made a carrot cake. It does not look like much....I am NOT a cake baker...but it was good and I guess that is all that matters.
