Just a short post today to say thank you to you ladies who took a moment to make sure I do not miss any needlework stores along the way. So far I have The Silver Needle in Tulsa and Shepherd's Needle in Little Rock. By the way, I have found a PURSE MUSEUM in Little Rock that I have put on my list of places to visit. Mary in Arkansas also gave me the name of a restaurant in Little Rock, so it is on my list as well. (Mary if you will email me at email@example.com, maybe we can meet up at the needlework store when I am there.) Bloggers are such friendly people and always glad to help out with recommendations. Poor Marvin....he asked if there were places near the LNS's so he could look at something while I browsed. So...any help for a poor retired physicist?
I think planning a trip is always an adventure in itself. Being retired, we are now more laid back about taking our time and enjoying the ride.
Today I am off with my friend, Diane. She is retiring from working for the City of Decatur after 30 years. (She started when she was in her early 20s). Before she leaves she wants to present some happies to special people at her retirement party next week. We are headed to a gift store in the county to find some nice things at a bargain price. After shopping we will have lunch at Caddo. Yes we have a town named Caddo. Not sure of its origins but they have a nice little cafeteria there.
Amelia and her family arrived safely in Colorado. Poor grandson, Hudson, was so nervous. He was sure the plane was going to crash. Amelia sent me a photo of Hudson with a big smile on his face after they landed. Overall Amelia says the children enjoyed their first flight. She thinks Landon may be getting used to the good life.:)
