(Friends Jenny, Patricia & Missouri Michael!)Well Readers, we left Stillwater Oklahoma and
(Down town Joplin)We got to Joplin around 3:00P.M. to meet up with Michael and get a pair of antique french doors that he won for me at an estate auction. But first we did a little antiquing and thrifting!
(A Pack of TV lamp Panthers.)
I didn't really buy much, but there was a lot of neat stuff! And who can resist a few funny pictures along the way!
After a quick stop at the house we were off to the Drive-In for a viewing of "The Hunger Games"
After the movie we headed back to the shack and talked the night away. The next morning we planned to get up and go on a "picking" adventure in Micheal's storage unit, but when 10:00A.M. rolled around I had trouble getting some people up...
None the less everyone was eventually up, dressed and fed and with that we were off on an adventure!
("I just have a few things to go through...")
("Well maybe just a couple of things...")
Haha I pull Micheal's leg, but we are all pack rats to some extent! He was nice enough to let me Patricia & Jenny pick through his extras and we came away with quite a few treasures! I have ahd zero time this week to stop and take pictures of the things we picked, but I can show you what friend Jenny found!
Some 1950's/60's bronze rim glasses that were her exact prescription! After picking the Storage unit clean we headed off to Kansas for Lunch! That,s right, Four states in one weekend!
We headed over to "Chicken Annie's" for the BEST fried chicken lunch in the Midwest, Michael and I have both raved about how good the food is. It's a MUST when we're up that way! Having gorged ourselves on chicken we headed back to the Shack to pack up and start the long journey home.
Defeated, I was forced to leave the doors in Missouri in Micheal's garage and we are now planning a return trip in may with a minivan we are 100% sure will hold the doors! Aside from that one minor setback, it was an amazing trip. One we'll gladly take again... but this time come home with the doors!
I'd like to thank both our hosts Savannah and Michael for rooming us and putting up with us. You guys are the best!
