Three Of Our Favorite Things

Saturday, we were able to combine three of our favorite things into one nice bundle.

We were lucky enough to have the day with our granddaughter Maddie. (Marc’s daughter.)


We spent the day doing a little shopping.  Here she’s  modeling a new dress.

Then we were off to see Marmaduke, the movie.  This was a wonderful movie and enjoyed by all.

Then it was a trip to our favorite pizza place, Papa Murphy’s .  Their all meat pizza is our favorite, but they have a wide assortment.  Pop it in the oven and it is cooked in about 18 minutes.

There you go, Maddie, Movie, and Murphy’s, three of our favorite things.

By the way, congratulations Marc.  Down a total of about 150 pounds and approaching his goal.  You’re looking great.

Hooray for Boo Ray’s

Our favorite restaurant in the Weatherford, Texas area just got even better. Boo Ray’s of New Orleans is located, just as you approach Weatherford on Hwy 180 coming from Fort Worth, at 3039 Fort Worth Highway, Hudson Oaks, TX 76087.


You might not see the sign because it is semi-blocked by the tree in the background.  But you can see the Sonic sign and it is the next driveway.

Rick’s favorite is the stuffed chicken which comes from the lunch menu, and, by the way, can be ordered later than 5:00Pm.

Stuffed Chicken

8 oz. chicken breast and stuffed with shrimp and crab meat stuffing and topped with homemade crawfish holandaise.(click menu to enlarge.)


The full, and obviously Cajun, menu is available at

Now for the reason that they have become even more special.  This week we have the pleasure of taking care of two of our granddaughters, Ayden and Gracie.  We decided to take them to Boo Ray’s for dinner last night, (Monday).  We sat and ate a wonderful meal.  The girls ordered from the Kids Menu.  When the bill arrived, I told the waitress that there must be some mistake because the girl’s meals were only $0.01 each.  She said that was the correct price for Kids Menu items on Monday and Tuesday.  Once again, Hooray for Boo Ray’s.

Here’s the girls review of the french fries.


So much for manners.

By the way, the mixed drinks are only $2.50.  Guess where we’re going for dinner again this evening.
