Here are some photos that have been collecting in my phone...that you need to see.
I mentioned earlier that Ken, Johnny and I went to Babe's Chicken Dinner House in Sanger, Tx the other night. Babe's is a local chain with about 8 restaurants and fantastic homestyle food, served family style. The green beans caused me to MOAN the first time I ate them...they tasted just like my Memamma's. The server told us they ought to taste good; the beans were fried in bacon grease before being cooked in the pot liquor with the side meat. Uhmmmmmm. Also: the biscuits (with honey and sorghum molasses available); the mashed potatoes, the cream gravy...this is NOT a place you'd eat every meal, but wonderful for a treat.
While in Sanger, I took some photos. Here is one of the big rooster outside Babe's. Sadly, in this picture you cannot see the sign taped to him. It says, "PLEASE DO NOT RIDE THE CHICKEN!"
Here's a photo of the little building next to Babe's.
Babe's has very country decor, with chickens everywhere. Here is a sign I spotted en route to the Ladies' room (HENS):
Over at the church: Here is part of Gina's Garden, built in the close between our Parish Hall and sanctuary. It honors Gina Holland, the wife of our rector, who died two years ago. The dark-colored bricks have just been installed; they are our first round of memorial bricks which were ordered several months ago. Our two are shown below
this one for Ken's parents and brother:
and this one for my friend Tennyson:
Just a few more: Here are Ken and Johnny working like crazy on Lot 1, where the President parks:
and finally - Ken and I on our 9th Anniversary, May 31. We were at the Harley Davidson dealership when this was taken. :)
