My trip to Oklahoma in pictures: Part Two






The hand is my Grandma's after I gave her a manicure. She was born in 1914 and has worked very hard her whole life. She has sewn, picked cotton, cooked, and gardened ( and played many a game of bingo) with those hands, and for 92 years old, I think her hands are beautiful. Those are her real nails, and she loves to get a manicure.

So is that damn Sonic cherry limeade or whatever they advertise really as good as it looks in the commercials? Also, it has been really rainy here, but I didn't mind because I knew your fishies in the pond needed it :^)

Your grandmother's nails look beautiful! You are so lucky to be able to spend some quality time with her.
Have fun in Oklahoma!

The first thing I get whenever I go back to Texas - a diet cherry limeade. Yes that's right - they have diet 7up so you can order a lighter version.

Looks like you had a wonderful visit with Grandma - I hope you spoiled her they way she spoiled you as a child.

*Melvis-

Yes! All Sonic drinks are delicious! Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper, Cherry Limeade, Cranberry Apple Limeade, Diet Vanilla Coke....the list is endless! I flippin love Sonic!
Thanks for thinking of my fishies! Viva la RAIN!

*Hi Joce--

Thanks! I consider myself very lucky to have my Grandma around. I only wish I lived closer to her so I could spend more time with her!

*Hi Green Eyes--

Sonic is a guilty pleasure! I really wish I had Sonic near me. Thanks for the kind words re: my grandma's hands. I know I am lucky!
The Sonic topic is indeed worthy of 2 posts--do not apologize! Melanie needs to taste that ever elusive nectar of the gods known as the CHERRY LIMEADE! HA

Lovely day to you too!

* Hi Mary--

YUM the diet cherry limeade---they also have plain diet limeade--sans cherry--delicious also.

I did have a lovely time with my Grandma. We went to the beauty shop and Wal Mart Super Center--very few things in life make her as happy. Bless her heart.

xoxo to all!

*Fightin' Mad Mary -

1)I have to say...love the name!
2)Diet Cherry Limeade? If your going to only get to Sonic once in a blue moon I say go for the gusto and get the fully loaded junk. It's not like your drinking it every day. Live on the edge and up to your name. Kick that limeades ass!!!
