A day of fun with Casey Joe

Carol and I enjoyed a fun day this past Saturday at a Mississippi State football game with our four-year-old grandson, Casey Joe.

We left our house around 11 am and headed south toward Starkville. In West Point we bought him “chicken/fries” (as he calls his favorite meal) at McDonald’s and took them with us over to Pizza Inn. McDonald’s is not our kind of place.

We called on Casey Joe to ask God’s blessing on our food once inside Pizza Inn and having opened his chicken/fries and awaiting our food order. Here is what he prayed:
“God, thank you for my family. Thank you for food and animals - but not snakes. I love you, Jesus. Amen”
We arrived in Starkville around 1:30 pm and stopped to watch a group college students flying remote controlled airplanes. We then entered the MS State campus and enjoyed several hours with Casey Joe before the game. He enjoyed looking at children’s books at the MSU bookstore and jumping on the inflatable entertainment set up for children outside the stadium. We accepted the invitation to eat hot dogs and hamburgers with Carol’s brother, Bruce, and nephew, Chan, before the game.
