Tom and I love our trip to Birmingham, Alabama. He is doing well considering he had his last chemo treatment this past Monday. Thank you all for your prayers.
We stopped at Cracker Barrel to have lunch on our way to Birmingham. I love Cracker Barrel. They have this peg game on the tables that I always have to play when we go. It starts off like this:
You have to jump over the pegs until you have only one standing. Two is good, three not so much and four or more left is very bad. This was mine after I tried:
This was Tom’s after he took his turn.
This is what we ended up with after we cooperated together. Hmmmm . . . lesson here is that Tom and I are better when we work together.
We are staying with dear friends, Michael & Elisa. They welcomed us with open arms and even provided the basket below filled with goodies for our room. Their church is teaching a class on dream interpretation and Tom is having fun helping out.
The bonus for me on this trip was I got to meet Jennifer from Dust Bunny Hostage. She was visiting Birmingham and took time away from her family (on her birthday – Happy Birthday Jen) to meet with me at the Irondale Café (better known as the Whistle Stop Café from Fried Green Tomatoes).Of course I had to try the fried green tomatoes. It was yummy.
I was thrilled to meet Jennifer. She was even prettier than her picture. She was as sweet and kind as she portrays herself on her blog. We had a delightful time talking and visiting. It was the first Tom got to meet one of my blog friends. He was happy to be able to greet her also.
I love reading Jen’s blog. She is very humorous when she writes. She blogs about so many different things and has a flare for writing. Do yourself a favor and visit Jen. You won’t be disappointed.
I’m loving Alabama and leave you with this You Tube video.
