It was a very fast trip for me from Vermont back to the south. There was no sightseeing except for an occasional stroll through a Cracker Barrel gift shop.
It was freeway the entire time through New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas ...
...and finally, Shreveport, La and a visit with my Lambert cousins. Jo Beverly has not changed a whit in the past two years since her 90th birthday. She is still going to work every day and has no plans to retire. I am hoping I can talk her into taking a few days and traveling with me next spring--I am sure her work will survive without her for a day or two.
Cousin, Kim drove up from Houston to spend the weekend so it felt like a party.
And Brenda (Jo's daughter-in-law) and her mother, Lily, made it a really fun and very warm hen party.
It is so pleasant visiting this 'new' branch of my family. I think of them as a gift that I never expected when I started this nomadic life 4 years ago.
Once again, I am behind in blogging--due to a lot of business to take care of in Ft Worth, Tx with Aunt Louise. It is not all work though so I best get back into the blog routine. Thanks for hanging in there.
