And Finally

I ended my time in the States in Dallas where my oldest son and daughter and their families live. It’s always amazing to see how much children have grown.

My daughter in law had these cactus in a pot that bloomed beautifully while I was there.

We went to a Tex Mex place for dinner one night at Chuy’s, first founded in Austin. They had a help yourself to chips and salsa place set up in the trunk of a car type display. The whole place is funky and fun with one room having hubcaps all over the ceiling.

I saw a grandson play baseball which was a lot of fun.

For a Mother’s Day treat I had my first every pedicure. Just not something I’ve ever done which, I guess, tells you a lot about me. Same with manicures and massages, although I have to say, my first massage made me wonder what I had waited for. By the way, look up Tippi Hedren and see how see started the whole movement of Vietnamese women coming to the States and doing manicures. Who knew?

I had lunch with my grandson at his school, St Marks which, as you can see, has a great campus. You can tell what sort of school it is when my grandson and his friend sat down and said, “We had so much fun in math!” Not something you hear kids say everyday.

Terminal 4 at the DFW airport where I spent a few hours due to a huge thunderstorm that cancelled many flights. I finally made it home though.
