Heading Home to Texas

We got to visit with Greg's brother, Bruce, and his kids on our last night in Pensacola. They had just come back from a holiday visit to Disneyworld. It was fun to sit around the table and listen to the three brothers tell stories on themselves. Bruce's daughter, Larkin, who is 6, finally decided that I was ok and came to sit with me while we listened to the boys talk.

This picture of Sam was taken while we were at Millie's house. He is, as we would say in Texas, a "big ole boy". This picture makes me laugh......
This is what we drove home in today. We hit the rain in Louisiana and we had it most of the way back from there. The traffic was moving well for the Sunday of Thanksgiving though.

We took a different way back once we got into Texas so that we could swing by Brandon's house in Round Rock. Really, we just met them at a convenient point for us both to drop off an ice chest of fresh seafood. The traffic was bumper to bumper from about Temple (30 minutes from home). We stopped by Jeremy/Marci's and picked up the dog (thanks guys!) and headed home. We just finished a couple dozen or so fresh oysters on the half shell and about a dozen that were cooked in the shell on the grill. Later in the week, we will grill the swordfish and do something with the shrimp that we bought in Florida.
Just want to say a special thanks to Millie for putting us up at her house. You are always a terrific hostess and we always have such a good time. The food was wonderful and the company was even better. It is wonderful to have a "plant person" to visit with. Thanks for being there for me. I love you bunches!!! paula
