Thanksgiving On The Road

Thanksgiving On The Road


A Cracker Barrel Thanksgiving 

We went by the Millikins this morning and visited again with Bro. Jimmy and Bro. Marty. We hated to leave them so bad but it was time for us to move on down the road. 

It has been good to see all the Millikin family. They are special folks and have been a blessing to thousands of people across the country. Please continue to pray for them. 

After fueling up the Green Machine we left Claremore a little before 1:00 PM. we stopped at Cracker Barrel for Thanksgiving dinner near Ft. Smith, Arkansas. 

I dropped Kelly Jo at the door to put our name in the hat and then unloaded Odie and sent her toward the door. I was going to park and the wait in the car because Cracker Barrel is always backed up at least an hour on Thanksgiving. 

Odie was texting me to let me know they were seated at a table before I could get the car parked. Within 10 minutes of walking in we had our Thanksgiving meal on the table. 

We have eaten Thanksgiving dinner at Cracker Barrel quite a few times through the years but it seemed especially good today. Then came wonderful pumpkin pie for dessert. 

The girls shopped for a few minutes after the great meal and then we loaded up in the Green Machine and headed out. We left the parking lot exactly one hour after we pulled in. It could not have worked out any better. 

We are still traveling as I type this post. We have about 170 miles to go to the bus. I have not looked up at the road in several miles. It is a good thing that Kelly Jo is driving now. 

Wednesday night we went to see Sis. Millikin in the hospital with Bro. Jimmy and Sis. Shauna. While in Tulsa they drove us through some Christmas lights. The light were pretty awesome. 

I took a few iPhone pictures. The pictures are not near as awesome as the lights but they will give you a glimpse. 

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. God bless you all.
