Praying Hands and Hamburger Night at Linda's

Doug's Aunt Terri and Uncle Rodney came by for a look at the motorhome in the morning.

That afternoon we drove a little around the area and found one of Webb City's claims to fame: the Praying Hands Memorial.


Hands in Prayer...World in Peace...if only...

For information about the praying hands go to http://www.prayinghands.org/ .

After viewing the Hands, we first went to another Webb City claim to fame: Big Lots; then we headed to Linda's house for the Mayfield Family Hamburger Night. This is a regularly occurring event on Thursdays.

Linda's husband, Gary, grilled up the hamburgers and hot dogs. Doug's cousin, Kim, said you could find Gary out grilling even in the dead of winter.

Speaking of Kim, Doug finally managed to snap her picture. She wasn't too thrilled as she told us she had just finished mowing.

Aunt Patty came by too and we all had a nice visit...

that is, we had a nice visit until Jeff Foxworthy informed us all that we were NOT smarter than a fifth grader.

Linda (in her new glasses) and Marlon (who needs glasses) enjoy the fact that they aren't smarter than a fifth grader.

This was our last night visiting Doug's family. Thanks to everybody who came out and wished us luck.
