And of course, we had some barbecue, because John and Linda were cooking up a storm while I was gallivanting around. So just a few more photos to share of family, food, and the fabulous clouds of the Gulf Coast region. Man, I don't think there's anyplace I've ever been that can whip up a skyscape to beat Houston's.

First - the smallest gathering to date of our once-monthly potluck social group. Linda and Josue were the originators of this bacchanalia, which waxed and waned as our friendships and partnerships came and went over the years.

Roger and I enjoyed catching up with cousins on Saturday. Vic and Rita are my godparents, and special favorites. Note the elegance of the antler chandelier - sort of a staple in Texas interiors! The restaurant also displayed a poster with the boots made for President Truman by the Tony Lama Boot Company of El Paso, Texas.

We also had a visit with Ray and his wife Carolina.
