Lunch at Casper's.......

Today was a gorgeous day in Springfield and as much as I needed to stay home and start working on my knee-deep leaves, I was lured out by the promise of chili. This year Casper's is celebrating it's 100th year in Springfield. You heard that right -- 100 years! It's been in several locations but has always served chili. I had the Frito pie and it was yummy. Judy and Kristy had chili and cheeseburgers. They seat you at big tables and we ended up sitting with 3 guys. They were a riot and we laughed our way through lunch. Maybe that's why we didn't have indigestion.
This is some of the artwork inside the old metal building.
They have a huge collection of chalkware and this is just part of it. Go figure!!!!
After we finished lunch we decided to head downtown to the STD flea mkt. I swear I'm not teasing you, that's its name. There are actually 2 of them. It stands for Springfield Tool & Die but I'm sure it scares some potential customers off. I just never use the restroom.
OK, I haven't shown g'kids pictures lately but had to show these. The girls got out of school early yesterday so I picked them up and we went to the park (after Chick fil a) and played for awhile. Quentin, Sage's friend, was out too so he came along. His Mom, Natasha, was helping Allison in her classroom so Quentin was bored. He was also a little bored with my picture-taking.

We've had such incredible weather for November but think it's suppose to come to an end this weekend. Guess I'd better get started on those leaves.
