Such a fun place to eat with all the art painted on the walls!


Have wanted to eat here at Strouds at Oak Ridge Manor for years. So pan fried chicken here we came for my 80th Birthday Dinner. Sister Judy and husband Maurice are waiting to be seated in the old 1833 Log Cabin Lobby.

Our room over looking the lake.

Green Room in Log Cabin

Blue Room

Food on the table, Family Style, ready to partake!

Lunch  at Olive Garden the day after my birthday provided by son Paul

 Generous Gifts of paints, brushes and canvases from grand kids

My Art Studio is calling Me! Canvass also from good friend Karen

Very Pretty handmade necklace from Tracee,  Paul's companion. Paul gave me a high intensity light for my computer and framed family pictures taken at Christmas. Somehow those pictures didn't get in the post!

Pretty Blouse from Friend Hope.

Shepard's Hook for plant or lantern from good friend Rose Marie
Precious little red wagon from sweet sister Judy.

Favorite place for Breakfast, Cracker Barrel!

Maurice playing and singing Happy Birthday to me right before we left for the city.
