Cookie Jar Cafe Visit with Blog Friends

Special Friends:  Bill, Lynda, Betsy, George
On Saturday,  August 16, 2014,  George and I  had the privilege of meeting Blog and Facebook friend, LYNDA and hubby Bill,  at the neatest little country farm and cafe.  The Cookie Jar Cafe is in Dunlap, Tennessee in the Sequatchie Valley.   We met for lunch and lots of talk and fun!!!

Lynda and I have been blog friends for a long time --and fairly recently,  Facebook friends.  But--we had never met in person until now.  You will want to check out Lynda's blog by clicking on her name in the first sentence of this post.  What a wonderful couple --and to say that we 'hit it off' is an understatement.  It was as if we had known each other for many years... Lynda's husband doesn't blog --but he truly has a fantastic sense-of-humor.  Obviously,  he kept us in stitches all afternoon!  BUT--since both Lynda and I are 'talkers' ---the guys had to work hard to get a word in edgewise.... ha ha




You need to click HERE to read more about this little cafe/farm/petting zoo/picnic area/playground, etc... The food it down-home country food and we enjoyed every bit of it --including the homemade desserts (cupcakes for us).

Inside the cafe;  Guess who is running her mouth?????? ha ha



There are all kinds of little cookie jars decorating the walls in the cafe....



More of the cookie jars!!!  (I could do an entire blog post showing these adorable cookie jars!)



Another of George's gorgeous photos of our view from the porch of the cafe



I loved this wood carving on the porch of the cafe. 



We enjoyed sitting on the porch.  Of course,  the men had to WAIT on us women as we got more pictures of those cookie jars!!!!!! ha



Then we walked around the area ---and just HAD to check out this old tractor.



This little goat was so friendly and was part of the Petting Zoo.



Bill had to take some time to talk to that little beauty there!!!!



Bill must have been in the doghouse for some reason??????  BUT--when he stuck his head out of that window,  he got a kiss from Lynda!!!!!  (I love this picture of Lynda.)



These youngsters had to take time to PLAY......So much fun!!!!



Not to be left out,  George had to 'play' on the Sliding Board... Since it was a hot day,  the board was too HOT for him to slide on it.... Maybe he'll slide down the next time we go down there!!!  Ya think?????????



Two wonderful people standing on the porch of that precious little cabin.... I told my Facebook friends that I wanted that cabin on top of a mountain with a waterfall nearby!!!!!  Sound good????



Two wonderful friends FOREVER

Finally,  here's one more photo of the four of us.  You should have seen George finding the perfect spot to set up the camera for a photo of the four of us.  He forgot to bring the tripod ---so we had our pictures taken inside the picnic pavilion.   Not bad, huh????

IF you ever get a chance to meet a blog friend,  DO IT...  Blog friends can become some of the best friends in our lives...  Thanks to Lynda and Bill for making our day such a JOY...  We are already planning a Fall time together.   AND---George and I met two more bloggers on 8/24/14--so that will be another blog post soon!!!!!   OH how much fun!!!!

Hugs,
