While at Jason's, we went to the Houston Zoo for a picnic. Josiah likes riding with the food; later, Papa Bill took him in the petting area to meet the goats. Over the tree tops, we could see Children's Hospital, where our daughter Kristen now works. (click on any photo to see larger)
Like most of the mid-west, Texas is experiencing a very bad drought --- One day I found these leaves under one of the live oak trees in Jason's yard, looking very heat stressed.
On the drive home, I bought a postcard quoting Davy Crockett. Seems to express my feeling towards Washington politicians these days who don't seem to understand the concept of not spending more than you take in.
No matter what time of year, there is always a beautiful sunrise as we drive out of Houston.
Half way to Dallas, we usually stop at Corsicana for a snack, a sample of fruitcake, or some of Bill's favorite coffee. This was the BEST chicken salad sandwich I've tasted, on fresh baked pecan bread. Yummy!
