Trip to Texas

Last month we made a trip down to Longview, Texas.  Our friend, Dick Whiteman is on the board of Missionary Tech Team.  They have their annual board meeting every March.  Howard and I had been asked to cook for it this year.  The board and their wives were there for a few days. We had such a good time.  We have heard Dick and Anne talk about this for years, so it was nice to put faces on people and hear about MTT.





The headquarters were just finishing up a remodel of their buildings.



Of course Howard had to make pies one night for dinner.  



Howard had his birthday while we were in Texas.  I had planned on giving him a gift every hour through the day, but it just got too busy.  We had traveled home from Florida with Dick and Anne on time on Anne's birthday and had gone to the dollar store and Goodwill and got her gifts for every hour.  So ,we ended up celebrating Howard's birthday in the evening.  Some of the ladies had gotten him some gifts also.  It was a fun time.


This was his Texas fly swatter.

Breakfast on the Special Plate.

A fun evening.

We spent one day with Dick and Anne and then came on in home.  We were starting to see some blooms in Arkansas.  We stopped at a rest area and the ground cover was beautiful with white and purple flowers.

Yours truly

We had the strangest thing happen right after we had walked down to take a picture of the Redbud tree.  This car whips around and rolls down their window and calls out to us. He said, "You are a long way from California, aren't you?".  He then rolled up his window and drove off.  We had no idea who it was.  We thought at first that something on our car identified that we were from CA, but their wasn't.  It was very strange.  We are assuming that someone recognized us.
