My Little Slice of Heaven

One of my favorite places in the whole wide world is my friend T.'s parents' house. If they'd take me (and Devo and B.), I'd move in tomorrow. Since that's probably not going to happen, I'll have to settle for visiting as often as I can, which I did this weekend. Here is why I love going 'home':
  • T.'s dad D. makes the best sausage gravy and biscuits every Sunday morning. I would drive home just for that if I could get my lazy butt outta bed early enough. Back in the day, missing breakfast (due to colds or, um, hangovers) was not allowed.
  • It's always a party! There were 13 people at the ranch Sunday. No reason except it was Sunday.
  • Kids! Between T.'s daughter, J.'s daughter and J.'s son, you can get your share of hugs and kisses.
  • The pond. Spending 5 hours in a pond yesterday was the only place I wanted to be and only thing I wanted to do. We had enough floaties for an army and cold beverages were close at hand.
  • The four-wheeler. Walking back and forth between the house and pond is hard work. So we drive the four-wheeler.
  • It feels like home. I know where the towels are. I know there'll always be Dr. Pepper in the fridge for me. I know the door is always open.
