I think EVERYbody loves him....
and ♫♫♪ AMARILLO BY MORNING ♪♪♥
is one of my favorite songs by him.
Mr. Sweet and I took a long weekend to AMARILLO...
it's less than 2 hours from where we live.
He was working a Ranch Rodeo Trade Show and one of my best friends in high school
lives in Amarillo so I planned to hang with her and her sis.
The first night there, someone told Mr. Sweet that if we wanted a steak to go to the little hole in the wall COYOTE BLUFF CAFE....
It was rumored that they had the best steaks in Amarillo....
Yep...they sure were right when they said it was a
HOLE IN THE WALL...
but I dearly LOVE going in places like this...
the above photo is off their website...it was dark when we were there.
We decided to give it a try and we had the BEST Ribeye steak and salad, EVER...!!
Nothing in sight that was fancy...just really good steaks.
In fact, it was so good, we did it again the next night.
This time, tho, we tried one of their MANY burgers and
I thought I'd died and gone straight to HEAVEN.
I didn't get a single photo of this Bacon, Fried Onion, Sharp Cheddar,
sauteed mushroom, and all the other stuff famous on a burger.
The above is from their site.
...a vintage bathtub, filled with ice and beer...
so so cute.
We couldn't keep from laughing when we saw their flower POT
beside their front door.
My friends wanted me to see
A wealthy, Mr. Marsh, had olden Cadillac cars buried, nose down....
They encourage graffiti on the cars and they keep a supply of spray paint for visitors to use.
No way was I going to paint those cars...
That's Alice, my friend from high school on the right and her sis.
I was wearing a purple shirt that day and almost blended right into that car behind me
Had it not been for that SNOW WHITE HAIR, you might not could find me..:).
This has to be one of the strangest things I've ever seen in my life and
if you'd like to read more of this weird art, you can go HERE.
It was a lot of fun to see these cars...
and MUCH more fun to see my sweet friend, Alice.♥
"Thank you, Alice and Sharon, for a wonderful and really fun day..
the Mexican food was awesome (even when your FISH TACOS freaked me out)
and the shopping, wonderful."
This wonderful day brought to mind how blessed I am to still have friends from school. Such good friends that I hung on to them all thru these long long years.
I thank my Heavenly Father every day for putting them in my life.
I giggled when I saw this sign the
State of Texas put up on the outside of the fence of Cadillac Ranch.
"Graffiti painting of anything on this side of fence
One morning at the motel we stayed at,
I had a waffle in the shape of the STATE OF TEXAS...
I put it on my plate backwards and never noticed until I got ready
to post these pictures....
what a goofus..!!
