A LITTLE FAMILY VISIT!

It has been over a week since I wrote a Post!
There is a reason!
Nothing to report!!!

Then,  late Thursday night/Friday morning at  2:00am,  our Daughter, Patti and our SIL, Mark, arrived from High Point, N.C.   They were delayed HOURS with accidents on the road and terrible traffic!

We all slept-in Friday morning!  No specific place to go .....a completely free day to PLAY!

Patti and I decided to visit our fun shopping hang outs!

After we Filled-Up there was no stopping us!







First Stop.
The Coffee Shop in Senoia




During the Filming of The Walking Dead, this replaces the "Real" sign


We walked in and out of every shop.  This is becoming a "Ritual"!!!
Patti found a pair of shoes.   I think the last three times we have spent an afternoon in Senoia, she finds great fun shoes!



These ended up being our only purchase for the entire day!  But really aren't they FUN!

We found out from the Coffee Shop's owner that filming for The Walking Dead had been going on all morning!

Our LUCK......THEY HAD FINISHED THE SCENE BY THE TIME WE WALKED DOWN THE STREET.  
This is also the Bridge and House used in the film Fried Green Tomatoes!



 We headed out for Stop 2, The Avenues in Peachtree City.

We hit all our favorites!  Don't know how but I managed not to find one single thing!!!  Amazing!

The plans at this point were to meet the guys and our Granddaughter, Maggie, who drove down from Atlanta, at Frank's!!!









YOU ARE HIT WITH THESE TEMPTING TREATS BEFORE YOU EVEN ARE SEATED!



PATTI AND I ARRIVED BEFORE THE REST, SO NOT TO WASTE ANY TIME....





WHAT ELSE?

AFTER A FEW MINUTES THE GUYS AND MAGGIE ARRIVED!

MC THINKING ABOUT WHAT HE WILL HAVE!



 THE FOOD 

OUTSTANDING!!!



A FEW SHOTS OF THE GOODIES WE DINED ON!


PATTI STARTED WITH NEW ENGLAND CLAM CHOWDAR

 MAGGIE'S ENTREE 
SHRIMP W/PASTA



PATTI
16 OZ RIB EYE


MARK
PORK CHOPS


MC AND ME
YOU GUESSED IT
14 oz PRIME RIB

(ACTUALLY, MC ordered a 12 oz cut)



DID ONE GREAT JOB ON THAT MEAL!!!


Maggie did order a Baklava for dessert  !!!!   The rest of us.....could hardly move, let alone have a dessert!


This was a very SPECIAL Surprise!  When Patti and Mark were on their trip to Boston earlier this summer they bought us this fabulous knob for our kitchen cabinets......


I think I have started a Great Tradition!!!
Now, when I find a great unusual knob,    I'll get it!   Each one will have a Special Story.  
We already have two that Steve and Angela brought back from South Africa!
 And, a friend brought us back one from his trip to Europe!
This will be fun!


HOPEFULLY THE WORK ON OUR MASTER BATH AND THE FRENCH DOORS WILL START THIS COMING TUESDAY MORNING!!!

I KNOW WE'RE IN FOR SOME MESSY DAYS!

I WILL BE REPORTING BACK WITH ANY AND ALL UPDATES!
