“A big wonderful long hug”

We had the most wonderful day today and I thank you. Seems like it started with a big wonderful long hug and ended with one too. Dee and especially I enjoyed so much just passing time with you two. You two just made the 6 hours double. I am now home and tired, but HAPPY tired. Did I tell you that I love you? I do. Thank you for taking the time out of your way. I feel special. You are special. Mom

“I feel like I have been to Australia again”

Thank you Beau. I do appreciate you and following your travels. I feel like I have been to Australia again. 😉 I KNOW I have been to NYC, such wonderful memories with you there and I thank you for that wonderful experience again. I will never forget it

Austin is beautiful. Lots of lakes and camping areas. It is actually less mileage than Dallas or OKC. I have not been there for many years but some things do not change a lot. I would think you could do well there.

Meeting in Galveston would be fun. Do you ever visit their web page. They have rebuilt and repaired better than ever. Think I am our of space and will holler at you later. Love you Beau. Mom

“A dream within a dream”

“A dream within a dream”. He took me to a “Neal Diamond” concert, twice no less. “Sweet Caroline” was his favorite. Did you know that? Also, “My Way” by Frank Sanatra. We danced to both he he. He loved following you through your photos. It is only 11:20 June 30th here. Thank you for the buffer. Have been blue all day and feeling stupid for it. J.L. still ask about him as if doesn’t realize he is gone (89 this past Feb. and Dad was too young to go). Smooches and hugs. Love U. Mom

A Shaylaroo in New York

I’m back in New York City! What an awesome visit so far. Have been couch hoping from friend to friend and visiting everyone I can as well as new people who happen to be visiting New York at the same time. I finally got to meet Shayla from Australia today for the first time since we’ve been Flickr friends for several years.
