Although the sun never broke through the thick cloud cover and it was a bit windier than the norm there were plenty of blessings to be thankful for.
First and foremost it was a day of prayers of thanksgiving for those who gave their lives for our freedoms (all freedoms including the 2nd amendment). As you surely know we also thanked God for all who have served as well as those currently serving.
Even though the weather was less than one would wish for I did get out and did my favorite thing... tinkered. This included a little construction. I got a little unexpected, unlikely help.
And then more help flew in (see the Robin in the top photograph). They keep my spirits bright even though I was already on a bit of a relaxing high for the day.
And then there was the food!
Lunch was at Slim Chickens. As far as I know our Slim Chickens is the only one out of the Arkansas area. The food was good and the service was GREAT!
Dinner was steaks on the grill with baked potatoes and all the "fixings".
A thought crossed my mind about Minot... we have a place called Slim Chickens and another restaurant called The Starving Rooster... is there something in the water?
