Joe A. had special music this morning. He is so good.
I took several videos of the praise band. Because I was standing and hand holding the camera it came out rather jerky though.
After the service there was a farewell luncheon. I made green beans and tomatoes. All the food looked wonderful but I couldn't stay because I had to leave to go to my sister Elaine's birthday dinner.
When I went to leave I said goodbye to Miss A and said, "Can you wave to me?" Instead she smacked my hand giving me a high five! Cherie (her mom) said to me, "She learned that from her father." Way to go, Pastor Justin!
I rushed home and got ready to go to Peddler's Village and the Cock and Bull Restaurant. I had never been there before. My friend and next-door neighbor, Chrissy, drove because she had air conditioning in her car. It took us about 45 minutes to get there. Marion and Rich were already there. We were there a few minutes when Larry and Kim showed up. Elaine was the last to arrive. We were seated at a corner table with windows all around us. It was really nice.
It was decorated very nicely too.
|This statue of a bird was on the wall across from our table.|
|These plates were so pretty. And the lowered walls all had nice lamps on them.|
|I especially liked the top of this wall with the rooster. I guess this was the "cock" of Cock and Bull.|
|The chandeliers were wonderful.|
|And here's the "bull" of Cock and Bull. Ha, ha.|
|My sister-in-law Kim and brother Larry|
|Friends Rich and Marion|
|Elaine (the birthday girl) and Chrissy|
The food was expensive but well worth the money. We all got something different. I went for the Vegetarian Pot Pye. It was so good. The fruit cup was all fresh and so sweet.
For dessert I had a chocolate peanut butter pie. Yum!!!
We had quite a time dividing up the bill. It took a long time with everyone trying to figure out their part. In the beginning we handed all the bills to Larry. Here was his reaction.
But then we told him what the bill was and that he would have to pay it. Ha, ha! He's such a character.
After we ate we walked around the beautiful grounds and took some pictures.

|Here's a bird house on the roof of the gazebo.|
|Chrissy liked the white one and kept asking me to take a picture of it. There was red on its lips which made it look as if it were wearing lipstick. I like the way the fins are spread out. I think it looks like angel wings.|
So then we headed home. More Sisters Week is coming tomorrow.
Now for the July photo challenge. The prompt today was "9 o'clock". What better thing to show you than the apple clock I have on my apple decorated kitchen wall.
Have a good night, everyone, and I'll be back tomorrow.
