|Lu saying a few words about her good friend...|
|a very small portion of the art...|
|Flo's friends from DAFA - behind me are Carolyn, Lu, Mary Ruth, Brenda, and Sara..|
After Stitchers Play Date, Mary M. and I stopped by CC Young to see the DAFA Art Show - it was staged very well and I like where my pieces were placed.
|the groundskeepers had just put in pansies at CC Young -|
such a pretty purple!
|I was excited to see that my bowl made it onto the poster|
|For some reason, this was on a table, rather than hung on the wall...|
they must have needed to fill a space
|my Obtainium Challenge entry looked good next to Sheila's doll|
|And Mary took my picture next to my Fiberlicious vessel|
On the 14th we celebrated my birthday with Turkish food -
|and falafel, white beans, grilled vegetables, humus, and rice.|
|it's nice and we are looking forward to returning|
|these, of course, made me think of Reid...|
|and this made me think of Valerie...|
|my friend Tim said he was glad I could|
reconnect with a childhood pet.
I haven't seen a Sinclair Oil dinosaur in decades,
but not as long as he implies!
Road construction was everywhere...I had ample opportunities to get pictures of Men At Work...I love how parts of the landscape make you expect John Wayne to ride over the horizon at any second...
|The Herbal Alternative in Cortez, Colorado|
|These made me think of Deborah's "Y" stitches on her artwork|
|Mr. R was not even near happy until he was in the front with us!|
He got along with their dog and everybody enjoyed sitting together on the couch and watching Dr. Who.
|He even decided Blaine was an okay guy before the end of the episode!|
We both got to spend Monday with Shera and stopped at JoAnn's, then lunch at a wonderful Lebanese restaurant and then visited a great bookstore.
The weather for the trip back (Day 1) was miserable - it rained...
sleeted, snowed and hailed (you can't see it in this picture where I tried to get the hail)...
and visibility sucked.
Needless to say, we were very happy to arrive on the North side of Albuquerque, grab dinner and go to bed!
The next day was beautiful weather - we even saw some balloons over Albuquerque!
And, while it was a great trip, it was great to be back in Texas...
