Sunday’s Road Trip to Searcy to See Pat

purse, Pat's house 037I haven’t seen my quilter friend, Pat, in several months. We talk all the time, but I had a couple of things for her. I called Joan and Deanna to see if they wanted to make a road trip today to go to Searcy to see Pat. I grew up going to Aunt Bea and Uncle Guy’s house in Searcy, and Daddy was in a nursing home there. Pat’s new house is about three blocks from where Daddy was. We called and she met us at Chili’s for lunch. Then we went back to her house for a visit.  Pat was so gracious, she let the girls “tour” the house and they were so involved in asking about how different things were made,  collected, and stored. Pat made a beautiful cherry pie and told us her baking secrets. It tasted great!!! We wanted to get back before dark, so we headed out and ran by Kroger’s in Conway. It was a really good, fun day. Thanks, Pat!!!PatPat 1 purse, Pat's house 023Pat 2 Pat 3 Pat 4 Pat 5 Pat 6
