The Company Came!

Remember my posts about preparing for company?  I kinda didn't mention who was coming.  So, here he is (and his girlfriend!).  Mr. Mick of Everyone Goes to Mick's and his girlfriend Patricia.

We had a wonderul time visiting and going to dinner at Chicken Annie's on Friday evening.

On Saturday morning, bright and early we were up going out to hit up the local antique shops and flea markets.  I found some great pieces that I'll share with you tomorrow.  We finished our time together by going to watch Cars 2 at the local drive-in theater.  It was a blast!  I certainly look forward to future visits from them!

Mick even came with some gifts!  Take a look at this awesomeness!

The school sign from the schoolhouse on the set of Tom Sawyer.  Mick named the school after the one-room school that my grandma taught in back in the 1940s.  He also brought a great green planter (as many of you know, I have an ever growing collection of planters - they have so many uses!), a stone that he hand painted and has a little picture of his cabin, a postcard for the Glenn Miller Band, and an avocado green Ice-O-Mat to go with my avocado green kitchen.

Thanks for coming to visit, Mick!  Y'all come back now, ya hear?


  1. That Mick is such a nice guy! I am so glad he and Patricia came to visit. I too love those planters and my collection keeps growing! Have fun!

  2. What fun for you all to trade visits. Tell us more about Chicken Annie's. Sounds good. We had a white ice crusher like that when I was a kid, but I don't know if it was Ice-o-Mat. This was in the 60s. It was a big deal.

  3. We had so much fun visiting and THANKS AGAIN for the hospitality! As for Future Visits... the ball is in your court Buddy :P
