I had an unusual twenty-four hours this week camped out in a Chick-fil-a parking lot in sub-freezing weather. For those who aren’t in the know, Chick-fil-a restaurants offer a one year’s supply of free meals to the first one hundred people in line for a Grand Opening of one of their stores. This week Chick-fil-a had a store opening in Oklahoma City and my daughter and I decided to try to be one of the chosen few.
It was not difficult being one of the first 100 because it was raining and snowing when we arrived at 5:45 in the morning to get in line. There were 81 of us brave souls. The tough part was spending the next 24 hours in their parking lot in our little tent trying to stay warm. I have to say that Chick-fil-a has Class A employees. Even the head honchos present treated us like royalty (even if they wouldn’t let us stay in the building or leave the parking lot in the freezing weather).
Yep, I can now eat free at Chick-fil-a for a year. I love saving money — and I’ll even pass it forward. If you mention my blog, I’ll give you 10% off your next reservation. Hey, and I’ll also take $10 off a $75 Romance Package. Yea for saving money!

Cecil was recently invited to join the Rotary Club in Duncan and was inducted on October 14. Now for me, this means eating lunch alone every Wednesday. Cecil, however, has the pleasure of hobnobbing with many of Duncan’s local businessmen. They usually have a program, but all those who know Cecil will understand that his favorite part is developing new friendships. He loves exchanging ideas and culling advice from more experienced businessmen. Networking is absolutely Cecil’s idea of fun. You see here Cecil on the right inducted by the District Governor of Rotary Club, Russ Davoren.
He counts this as an honor to join this group of men. Me? I go out to eat every Wednesday!

Located in the heart of Duncan, Oklahoma, the Lindley House Garden Cottages Bed and Breakfast invites you to experience all the comforts of home in leisurely surroundings. Nestled in a garden-like setting, the English Country home exudes a delightfully romantic and relaxing atmosphere. The Lindley House’s central location places it conveniently within Duncan’s many points of interest, including the downtown shopping area, antique stores, shopping malls, the Simmons Convention Center, The Elk’s Country Club, and Duncan’s newest attraction - The Territory, a private golf and country club community.
The landmark home was built in 1939 by Dr. E.C. and Helen Lindley. Bonnie and Danny Talley purchased the home in August of 1996. Remodeling on the large two-story home began immediately and the Lindley House Bed & Breakfast opened July 1, 1997.
