My Favorite Day…..

“What day is it?” It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.  My favorite day,” said Pooh.” 
―    A.A. Milne

Sunday was a terrific day around here. It was hubby’s last real day off for a while because of the business he is in.  This meant one more little road trip.  While we had both been to these destinations before, today we would take our sidekicks with us, Debbie and John.  When you have friends held hostage in your car and they are at your mercy for the day…well, ya really don’t know where the road may lead!

Our families met years ago when our boys were about 5, 7 and 9 give or take a year.  The oldest of our young men is now twenty-seven.  All that to say, we been through a few bee stings, basketball games, camping trips, parties, moves, weddings and, well, you get the picture.

Our first stop was lunch at Clanton’s Cafe in Vinita, Oklahoma.  Chicken and dressing, chicken fried steak, squash casserole, banana pudding…..yum.Next stop…….Joplin, Missouri!

Must have wine with chocolate.

“When you see someone putting on his Big Boots, you can be pretty sure that an Adventure is going to happen.”

Here we introduced John to Sonic Happy Hour.  How could he not know??? oh, botherImportant stuff in the front seat.  The girls had the candy in the back seat!

And off into the sunset we rode…. where we eventually did release our hostages.

“We’ll be Friends Forever, won’t we, Pooh?’ asked Piglet. Even longer,’ Pooh answered.”

  8. Wonderful trip! I love that your friend has braces. I had braces as an adult, too. All the little kids told me that theirs never hurt, but mine killed me! Chocolate like that – and wine – would have helped tremendously. Oh, and boots, too, I’m sure. 😉

  9. I would love to do something like that. Thanks for letting me feel like I’m not in the hospital, I was there for a few minutes, which was great. Thank you.

    He thinks he might kinda like you
    He enjoys your humanity
    With a touch of insanity
    And he loves anyone who can do quotes about Pooh

    Nothing better than captive friends and a road trip. AND, Pooh is my favorite philosopher (next to Snoopy).
