"Thanksgiving 2011"

Don and I went out for Thanksgiving dinner with our friends, Penny and Sheila. We drove out to Mazomanie, WI, to The Old Feed Mill Restaurant, which is an old feed mill that was converted into a restaurant.....kind of self explanatory, but I "felt the need" to have it in print. ;) Don and I went there last year by ourselves and obviously enjoyed it enough to want to go back. ;)

Dinner was served buffet style and consisted of the usual Thanksgiving dishes, but The Old Mill is also known for their "Pot Roast", and it, too, was being served. DELICIOUS!

I "think" this is the 1st photo of the "Don and Sheila" photo series taken.......

Don somehow "managed" to get this one in of Penny and myself. ;)

Penny began taking photos with her "older", but obviously perfectly fine, iPhone (Sheila, more than Penny, is sooooo jealous of Don's 4s iPhone!). Don has his iPhone because he is developing apps for the "Department of Family Medicine".

Penny began giving Don directions as what he was to do to "Poor Sheila". You can tell by the look on Sheila's face that she is resigned to her fate......

Truthfully, Penny did surprise me with the "push Sheila's ears forward" directions. LOL Sorry , Sheila, but it was too funny! Thankfully, Sheila is a good sport........

As we left the restaurant, Don had us line up for a photo outside The Old Feed Mill. I "selfishly" have to add that Penny is wearing one of the scarves I recently wove.

A passing woman kindly asked him if he'd like her to take a group photo of us, to which he quickly assented. It is nice to have full documentation of our entire little group. :)

After a leisurely drive back to Madison, and on to Penny and Sheila's house, we stayed a bit to visit more, and of course, make sure their dogs had some quality time with us, too. Here is Eleanor/Ellie in Sheila's arms.......

While Frankie hung out with me for awhile. ;)

We had a wonderful day and look forward to spending more time with our good friends, Penny and Sheila.

That looks like a wonderful place to spend the day, the backgrounds in the shots looks very interesting. What a wonderful day to spend with friends, and cuddle a pup too at the end!

I went to TOFM one year for Thanksgiving. It was wonderful. I also rode out on the train from downtown once and had lunch. Special trip! Adorable doggies!
