# 21 LARGEST NO MORE

This is post is number 21 in the marathon.

 

At one time this McDonald's on the Will Rogers Turnpike was the World's Largest... until France knocked them out of first place.  Sadly the sign is gone.

Those little cherubs standing under the sign  in 2006 are two of our granddaughters.  It made them happy to stop here. The second picture is how they begged for us to promise to stop.   You can see why they got their way.  Who could resist?

It remains the grand-children's favorite place to stop on their way to our house even if it isn't the World's Largest anymore.  It is still a McDonald's.  This Glass House is built across the turnpike and you can enjoy your burger while you watch the traffic and pray that a tornado isn't on the way.

  2. I am not sure I would noticed the link for that? Does it appear on my post or in my email. If in my email, I do not check that one except once or twice a month...as it is just for rare Blogging communication outside of the blog itself. I love those little girls...so precious! I hate MacDonald's and rarely eat there. It actually makes me ill when I finish a meal there.

  3. Tabor -- Then why do you "finish" it? Sorry I couldn't resist. I craved McDonald's Big Mac's with both my pregnancies,

  4. I like a Big Mac about every other month and Marilyn likes their plain hamburgers about that often but other than that we don't stop except for a coffee for Marilyn on occasion. I'm not going to start drinking the stuff until I get old enough.
    The girls are really cute and the one on the left looks to possibly be a drama queen. And yes if they asked me to stop at McDonalds I'd od the same. My Grandkids probably call me 'automatic'.

  5. I love McDonalds, but try not to go there because of the calories and all. I like the double cheese burger - it's a favorite lunch when I'm on the road.

    Oh my - I hope you are never in that glass house over traffic during a tornado!

    Yes - I often come back and check for a comment on my comment.

  6. Cliff -- Ron is strict with the boys and totally a marshmallow with the girls. Often the boys will protest that he spoils the girls. That drama queen is now a freshman in college and the other is a drama queen too and a sophomore in high school.

    Lynn -- Our part of Oklahoma is the center of Tornado Alley and often we have taken refuge from storms at the Glass House but usually we just park there and wait out the storm in our car. The thing I liked about the "allow follow up comments" was not having to go back. If you clicked it, you would get an email with all the other comments. I'm going to miss that a lot if they don't bring it back. It was a great time saver for me.

  7. The first thing we we do when we arrive in the States is go to McDonalds. We never go in the UK, but it's a treat when we arrive, and with the drive thru we don't even need to get out the car. Bliss after an 11 hour flight.

  8. Yes- I read alot of comments usually.
    I used to go to McD's with Lil' Sis n for a dollar each we got burgers n fries!
    Where I grew up near Boston the food Market was built over the Mass Pike (8 lanes plus rail tracks)! I get nervous-

  9. Snaggle Tooth -- I could never spend time in that food market and I could never eat a meal in one of those high rise buildings where the restaurant turns to view the entire city. My meal would never stay down there.
