WhatAMan...WhatABurger...WhatAMemorial Day


Since it's Memorial Day and I'm Honoring My Hero,
I thought it would be a good day to
Show and Tell on HiHoney!

His real name is Wayne.
Our Son calls him Dad.
Our Grands call him Papa.
Our Families call him Sue's Husband.
Some Folks call him Mister.
I call him HiHoney!

....we were a young couple and always addressed each other as Wayne and Sue and kinda rolled our eyes at other couples who Honey'd and Darlin'd each other.  Then David met and married Karen.  We spent lots of time with them as they were family and we loved them both. 
The First word outta their mouths when speaking to each other was....you guessed it...HONEY! 
"Honey, where's my hat?  Honey, where you left it.  Honey, where was that?  Honey, on your head."
Honey, Honey, Honey....we rolled our eyes alot and soon found ourselves mocking our Beloved Brother and Sister-in-law.
 So, that's how HiHoney got his EyeRollin, OhBrother name of Endearment. 

 Now, HiHoney, likes my cookin' and would rather eat at home,and is known throughout our FamilyLand for putting just about ANYthing between TwoPieces of Bread! 

But today, he's treating me to a WhatABurger Meal before we head out on our Memorial Day DriveAbout and PhotoShoot!

I offered to Share!

Our 'DriveAbout and ShootOut' started on the road to Dove Creek. 
HiHoney says it's a place often mentioned in Elmer Kelton's books.
I'll be telling ya'll about Elmer Kelton real soon.  He's one of HiHoney's favorite writers of Western Folklore, and San Angelo is honoring him as a Hometown Hero with a new Library and Mural in Historic Downtown San Angelo.

HiHoney's ShootOut Shot on the way to Dove Creek....WhatA Beautiful Texas Sky!

  4. What a lovely day you had, I enjoyed the sideshow. Kinda sad in some of those shots with all the farming equipment just sitting. They look like they were put out to pasture.

    Thank you to your honey for serving our country and keeping us safe.

    Yum on the burger!~ They have big ones there in TX. Not like our dinky ones here where you have to lift the lettus to find it.

    Hope your day is blessed.
