Mississippi Trip

AJ and I drove down to MS to see Brian and Tisha. It was an excellent trip. The weather was fantastic and the scenery was beautiful.
We all went to Tupelo on Saturday. Of course, I found a quilt shop to spend some of my $.
AJ wanted to see the car museum so we all went. You know you are old when the museum displays a car you owned and bought new! Note the red 1974 VW. I had a bright yellow one.

I enjoyed seeing a Tucker up close and personal ----

Of course, you cannot go to Tupelo with out seeing where Elvis lived.

I took pictures of some of my stuff that I made that I sent down south.

This is the quilt I gave to Brian and Tisha for a thank you.
Just want to say one more time - great trip!

Texas Trip - August

I know, I know, I am really behind in my posts. I am going to try to update each week starting with my trip to Texas in August. It was a fantastic trip despite the heat. I was fascinated with the Texas size spiders. Too bad they did not eat all the grasshoppers that were in the yard.

I got to go to Brice's school - Huckabee - a small central school like the one my children attended in New York and like the one where I taught junior & senior high school science.
I almost jumped out of Mary Beth's truck to go to the administrative office and apply for a job teaching physics. But alas, it would be a long way to commute from the eastern shore.

I love all the horses - especially little Lucky.

Mary Beth, Brice and I went to the San Marcos outlets and spent the afternoon shopping. Brice likes clothes that are "fashionable and random." Here he is wearing his grandfather's golf hat from Germany. I love it.
