Our Holiday started at the crack of dawn on Wednesday. Lola and I had to head out for Nocona before 7 a.m. because we had to make the vet appointment in Henrietta. All went well on the trip to Nocona (much better than my traffic ridden trip a couple of weeks ago!).
After Lola and I finished at the vet, we arrived home to find the party had already started. Dad and my cousin Sam were kicking off the day with a few rounds of bloody mary's. At some point, my Mom (who had gone to Wichita Falls for a hair appointment) called my Dad and was stranded on the side of the road (or as it turns out in the middle of the road) because she was out of gas. Mom was furious with Dad because he didn't fill up her vehicle before she went to WF, and of course, Dad was furious because she didn't look at the gas gauge! The funniest parts of the story to me are that (1) there was a 5 gallon gas tank full of gas in the back of the truck she was stranded in and (2) she just sat there in the middle of Hwy 82 reading her Danielle Steel book until Dad arrived!
After that, several of us went across the river (for those of you not from Nocona, that means the 20 minute trip to Oklahoma) to the Peach Orchard for lunch. After we arrived back home, it was time to begin preparing for dinner.
Dad and Sam making sure everything is under control.
Everyone enjoying the wonderful meal on Wednesday night.
So much good food and good company. We had the bulk of our family at my grandparents today. We were missing a couple of spouses, my 3 cousins from Alaska and their families, my cousin Tamy, and my cousin Robert and his son who live out in California.
