We drove to Giddings, TX to watch our young friend Macy play volleyball. But first we wandered around an antique shop, looking for ideas to convert old galvanized objects into new kitchen lighting. Our favorite idea is using a long chicken-feed trough, hanging it upside down over our stove with lights inside. Still thinking about it . . .
Next, we ate at Reba's, our favorite deli / pizzeria place. Our daughter-in-law, Misty, told us about this place. Great soups, sandwiches, brick-oven pizza, and pies! This chef statue stands on the counter; I hadn't realized until drawing him that his right thumb is broken off. At one time he probably 'held' a tray or hanging sign. He reminds me of a full-sized chef at Ventana's, one of our favorite places to eat in Excelsior Springs, MO. How I would love to have a bowl of their buffalo chicken soup!
