.....With my 3 guys. This Saturday was spent with Mickey & I taking the pick-up and heading to Owasso for Mickey to help will getting the new bed. Marc was still at work but we went earlier than the 4 o'clock we were told to be there so Mickey & Aric could get the preliminary work done.
1st - remove existing twin bed from the guest bedroom to the garage for Marc to give away.
2nd - dismantle existing queen size bed from Marc's bedroom and move it to the guest room and reassemble it there.
By this time, Marc had come in and he and Mickey went to pick-up the new bed.
Just pictures of these three: Grandfather Mickey, Father Marc, Son & Grandson Aric putting together Marc's new queen box springs and mattress.

I wanted to SURPRISE Kathy with this visit so contacted Danny privately and told him our plans and could we pull it off. Danny was agreeable and connected us with Mary Lee, who I knew a little bit, via blogland, to work out the details.
During the following weeks, through e-mails back & forth, Mary Lee took care of locating the motel for us to stay in that was close to The Wright's home. We had planned to fly in, rent a car and proceed to said motel, but Mary Lee insisted we did not need to rent a car, she would pick us up at the airport!!!
When our plane landed on Saturday here was Mary Lee, not only picking us up but informing us that she had taken off work on Monday and would be our "wheels and chauffeur" the entire weekend and take us to the airport on Monday to fly on to San Francisco. She and Danny had also devised the "cover-up" of Danny suggesting that he and Kathy go garage selling that morning so Mary Lee could get us to their home. Danny & Kathy entered the house via their garage and the children detained Kathy in the kitchen as Danny joined us for the grand SURPRISE.
Mickey & I wanted to treat us all to a nice dinner so they selected a wonderful Italian place that was quiet and the food was delicious. We had our waiter take this picture of our group.
Back to The Wrights lovely home after church and a delightful meal prepared by Kathy. Another wonderful afternoon with the 7 of us talking, sharing and sharing some more.
The love and patience she had for Bethany & Daniel. I love this picture because it shows how long she has been an important part of their family.

Father's Day 2014 found just the 4 of us celebrating. Daughter Jacque was visiting in Missouri and of course son, David was in Florida. Both Jacque & David called Mickey and wished him Happy Father's Day.
Marc & Aric surprised Mickey by showing up for church service which was the best gift EVER, but in addition Jacque & Marc got him a pair of blue Sperry Top-sider's. His favorite!
My "guys" want an old fashioned Pot Roast dinner so that's what I prepared. Roast, carrots, onions and FRESH NEW POTATO'S from Mickey's own garden. Of course, the BIG tossed salad, and doughnuts for dessert.
Had enough left over that I was able to cut it all up in small bit size and mix together for another great meal for the 4 of us in Monday, when Marc brought Aric and the dog over to stay with us while he went to OKC for 2 days on business.

Six weeks since I last blogged. Time if F-L-Y-I-N-G by this year. This post is just about many of the blessings and GOOD STUFF God keeps blessing our lives with.
Aric's other grandmother came to visit Marc & Aric for a few days. We met them last night at Delta Cafe for a lovely meal & 1 1/2 hour visit. It was so nice to see Terry and catch up with all the exciting events going on in her life and have a really nice visit.

Broadway Bakery & Cafe recently opened downtown Coweta. They are open for lunch and Mickey, Aric & I visited them recently on a Tuesday after King's Kitchen.
When the new owner found out we serve 50+ shuts-in's a meal every Tuesday they offered to donate the doughnuts that did not sell each Sunday (they are closed Mondays) for us to use on Tuesday's!!!
The first week we were able to send out 3 items with each meal.
The quantity we get will, of course, depend on what is left each Sunday. The second week they were completely sold out. Last week we were able to have 2 a piece for every delivery.
Mickey, Danny & Robin and the chests and racks they had just emptied for us!!
Today Mickey and I dropped in for lunch. Mickey had a cheeseburger and I had a BLT and of course fresh made home style fries. YUM!!! My BLT was absolutely delicious and will probably become my "regular".
Everything is delicious so be sure and stop by, get to know this lovely couple and welcome them to our little burg of Coweta.
Just ANOTHER blessing from God for The King's Kitchen.
