Swamped -- or why I haven't posted lately
My sister was visiting from Iowa. It was 5°F up there the first night she was here. We are in the mid 70's.
Here Lois and Mrs. Jim are inspecting the cow at the Blue Bell Creameries. We did a nice tour ($2.00 senior rate and included two dips of our favorite ice cream).
My niece and husband and family live on down south of Houston. They are the main reason for the visit. But generally they always spend a few days with us. They have the record for time spent in our guest room.
Anyone else coming to visit Houston is always welcome to use it as well. We are a very good place to spend the night coming in to avoid the rush hour Houston traffic. They leave the next day or a couple of days later (or stay a while).
Brother-in-law, Jim W, came here also. He didn't bring his golf clubs but may borrow some before they week is over.
After the creamery we went to several antique stores and antique malls in Brenham. Mrs. Jim didn't buy anything, Lois got another plate for her green old set of serving dishes.
This morning before send-off we had breakfast at our Club. See, the Jim Bunch Eats once more. Mrs. Jim had an 8:30 tee time so she had to skip for this time.
Mrs. Jim had made it back in time for a little more chat and to guard her car while BIL Jim W. backed out of the driveway. We had a nice send off.
They are good folks, we had independent backing on this opinion as our dogs like them both really well. They will stop by on their way back up north.
Koala's are not hunted there a protected species.. the Koala's in pics were found on a freinds property were she has a lot of gum trees.and quite close to bush land...
Your breakfast look so yummy!
See even with your Diverticulitis, you can enjoy some good meals.
Mom Golden always loves to go out for breakfast!
Nice that you got to spend some quality time with your sister and brother-in-law.
Nothing beats having time with the family!
My brother lives in Sumner, Iowa.
I guess your folks thought that visiting you guys was just like visiting Florida.
I mean Iowa sure has been having some cold times, compared to Texas,eh?
Well take care now. I just wanted to say top of the morning to ya Mr. Jim.
Give Adi a hug for me....Love Terry
Have a nice weekend!
We seem to appreciate family more the older we get. I liked your
poem also - well done.
Thanks for your comments - glad you liked the kids deciding when to cuss.
Take care, Regards, Merle.
Marilyn and I laughed a lot at the cars video.
6 more weeks of winter shouldn't effect you guys too much.
Your breakfast looks and sounds great Jim. You all sure do know how to find good eats!
Good poem Jim!! You are a poet and don't know it!! hehe!!
Eating once again, I see. I eat often too, also, but I don't think I go out to eat nearly as often as you do.
Going out to eat is very enjoyable!
MMMmmmmm, a creamery. That sound yummy!
