The eight of us left out early this past Sat. morning.....6:30 to be exact. Our first stop was maybe 20 miles away. Now is that funny or what? Less than 20 miles away and we were all hungry!
We stopped by the Holiday Inn, checked in and then we were off. Guys going in one direction and the Gals going another. They had no idea what fun we were going to have, or they would have passed up the gun show and shopped with us.......They are the ones that missed out! just sayin'
I think we went into every shop in that town. My feet were telling me that enough was enough.
There were so many things that caught my eye, like this beautiful church and the cemeteries with the above ground tombs. As we started to leave, we noticed that there were two rows of cars parked on the streets. We finally came to conclusion that it was Mass and there just simply was not enough parking places for all those that were attending. Very unusual
That evening, we made our way down to a place called Mullate's. A real Cajun hang out!
Oh yes, Cajun music, Cajun food, and Cajun friends. I realized that I needed a little help learning to dance to Cajun music, so I ask a group of "Red Hat Ladies" if I could join them.
They taught me some moves that I didn't even know I could do.....Lots of fun!
Then, I found myself kissing some fellow named Sam. We found an old telephone booth and thought this would make a great picture for our grandchildren to see!! Lots of Laughs!!
We all made it back to hotel around 9:00 and some of the guys decided to take a little swim.
We, (the Gals) were just going to watch. Things did not exactly work out as planned. The guys got a little carried away and decided that they would throw the women into the pool, clothes and all. The problem with this was......not all of them got thrown in....ONLY ME!
We had a lot of laughs and the next morning we had even more laughs. The reason for those laughs is because we were all sore and realized that maybe we were a little above age to be trying to wrestle others into the pool!!
Our next stop was in the little town of Washington.........We were not going to see any Presidents, only Antiques...
Take a look at this old school building. They no longer have school in this building, so the town has turned it into a antique shop....The old gym was also filled with all kinds of antiques. Can you imagine how many antiques you can shop for in a building this size. I found so many unique items, but all I came home with was a bell....A little tiny bell. Not Sam though....oh no, he found himself an old peddle tractor with a trailer and some other good items as well.
There was one thing that caught my eye about this old school building. Take a look at the steps.
This old tree spoke to my heart. Just take a look at it...Lots of twist and turns of the branches. Our lives are just like that. We had a wonderful weekend with some of our very dear friends. These are friends that we went to school with. We graduated in the same class together, way back in 1971. Since that year, our lives have all taken a lot of turns. We have all gone in different directions and explored life in many different ways, yet, we all have remained as friends. We have a very special bond and I am very proud to have each of them as my friend.
Love to them all!
Appreciate your friends......Let them know that you do!
