We Were Caught!

Here's a big Morning Hug for each of you!
            

For those of you that live here or near "The City With
A Heart" you may have noticed that we have a new place to eat and it's located just outside of town....

"DQ"  has come to town!

For those of you that are not familiar with "DQ".....
This stands for Dairy Queen.......(YUM)







Ok....Ok....I know that it's been open for the past two or three months.....but, this past week was our first time to stop by this new establishment...

~~~~~~~~~

Just so happens that (Sam) was hungry for a

"Brown Derby"



Yep.....a good ol' dipped cone!

If you've never had one......you don't know what you are missing...

Now....everyone knows that when a person is always claiming to be on a diet....(and still hasn't lost any weight)....the last place that you want to be seen at is a place that sells ICE CREAM!!

As I'm sitting there in the car, waiting for Sam to run in and pick up our "Brown Derby's" ......guess who drives up beside us???



Tom, Shanda and the grandkids....

Oh, NO.........Is it OK to tell a little white lie?
Can I say that we stopped because Pops (Sam)
just needed a cup of coffee??

Just as I was pondering in my mind what reason I was
going to give them for us being there....

Out walks Sam....and he is holding 2 large dipped cones!



I can hear them now.....saying.....

So, is this the real reason your diet isn't working??


We were caught!!

I'm really not sure that either one of us enjoyed our Brown Derby that  day......You see, ice cream really does not do well in
105 or so temps....It was melting faster than we could eat it.....

Guess this calls for another trip to the good ol'

"DQ"..........

Sweet Blessings.....

Congrats on getting a DQ! I love the plain old chocolate ice cream there too!

Hugs,

Phil's favorite is the dipped!! That is all he ever gets. But he orders it in a bowl because of the mess, and this confuses many clerks, who do not know how to do such a thing, and he has to tell them how!! Did you know that ice-cream is no calories if it has melted?? So this does not count and you need to go back! How fun seeing the kids!!! Does your DQ have a playground inside? Ours does and the girls love to go there.

Dilly Bars and Butterfinger Blizzards are what ruin my diet!

Oh yikes! I just stopped over from Laurie's blog. Do you know dipped cones have always been my absolute FAVORITE. Just looking at these photos is making me drool. I must have one. But where the heck is there a DQ around here? Sigh...

Debbie said...

Yes, these are 'diet killers'. :D I am constantly killing mine. That looks like a very nice DQ. I love their steak finger or chicken strip basket. Just gimme some gravy to dip!
Hugs, Deb
