Weekend Getaway

My Grandpa and Aunt Tami share 20 acres 20 miles outside of Dallas, TX. It's always a nice weekend getaway for mom and I to drive the six hours there for a visit. This time was a little more challenging with the limited visibility combined with the agonizing 40 mph drive all the way to Oklahoma City but we were determined and made there. The temperature heated up in the 70s and we got to take in the GIGANTIC 1st Monday Flea Market in Canton, Texas but I didn't buy much this time around. My favorite thing to do is to get up early with Grandpa and drive to the Yellow Rose Cafe for coffee and small talk for hours with all the old (geezer) cowboy friends Grandpa has there on the lake.
