A Great Thanksgiving Day

Amarillo, Texas OR Gainesville, Texas?

Thanksgiving buffet at the Big Texan with Cajun Turkey, regular Turkey, Prime Rib and all the trimmings OR Cracker Barrel Thanksgiving meal?

Relax all day Thursday and drive Friday OR drive Thursday so I can rest Friday?

The girl spending all day riding in the BoggsMobile Friday OR Black Friday shopping in Dallas/Ft. Worth, one of their favorite shopping places of all.

Decisions, decisions. Honestly nobody had any strong leaning either way. We were all kind of ambivalent about the whole thing.

We went to bed with no decision made. We got up Thursday with no decision made. We seemed to have no inclination to make a decision.

So what do we do when we can not make up our mind? We do what we do best. We drive! We hooked up, loaded up and pointed the nose of the BoggsMobile toward the southeast and Gainesville, Texas. After a little over 5 hours we had the 300 miles behind us and we were pulling into the House of Prayer about 4:30.

A few minutes later we were walking into Cracker Barrel and walking straight to our table without any wait at all. That is two years in a row that has happened and I may get use to that.

As usual on Thanksgiving at Cracker Barrel, we had a wonderful meal!

As we were eating a family from Tennessee came by the table on their way out. We met them in 2011 at camp meeting in Elco, Illinois. They were out in Texas and Oklahoma visiting relatives and stopped for Thanksgiving meal at Cracker Barrel as we did. We did not even think to snap a picture but their last name is Curtis.

We asked for the check later and it had already been paid. We assume the family from Tennessee paid our bill.

God bless them for their kindness!

The girls brought me back to the bus and they moseyed over to WalMart to see if they might stumble into some unbelievable deals. They plan to shop most of today in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area if all goes as planned. I will probably stay right here and try to get rested and ready to preach Sunday.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving day too!

Before I leave you I have some pictures from the Big Texan. We really love this place. It is big, hokey and over done just like all good roadside attractions. Plus their food is great!

They have a 72 ounce steak dinner that is free if you can eat it in one hour or less. Last May Molly Schuyler ate two of them in less than 15 minutes. That is 9 pounds of meat plus all the trimmings of two meals. The first one was gone in less than 5 minutes! Wow!

This is a 72 ounce steak they have on display.

Nope!  I did not eat one.

The smaller one that I did eat was excellent!

That is all for now. Thanks for reading.
