About a month ago, Sheryl’s friend, Mary Helen, gave us our first wedding gift (see earlier blog with photo). It was a sweet reminder of her love and affirmation of both of us. We are very grateful.
On September 20, we began the 2014 Friends and Family Tour (Part 1) when we flew from Birmingham to Dallas/Fort Worth to see Sheryl’s sister and brother-in-law. En route, we decided to let the caps tell the story of the more than 3,000 miles we flew and drove. Follow the caps and they’ll show you where we went and some of the fun we had on the journey.
Thanks, Mary Helen!
We spent Tuesday morning in Fort Worth visiting Sheryl’s old haunts before meeting friends from Lubbock, Texas for lunch.
We spent our last night in Frisco, TX with Wally’s brother-in-law and his family but no “Caps Only” photos were taken! Why? In Wally’s excitement to take the photo of the caps with the mesquite wood pile, he walked off and left them behind! After exploring a delivery company pickup, he decided to return the next day to the restaurant to retrieve them. Sorry, Frisco!
The miles we traveled…the West Texas vistas we saw…the “recyclers” with whom we re-connected…the “newcomers” who became “keepers”…the PEOPLE who gave us their time and love encouraged us so very much. Many thanks.
The second half of the tour begins next Friday when we head to Franklin, Tennessee…St. Louis…Kansas City…and Murray, Kentucky.
Then we “rest” until Thanksgiving when the TOUR ends in Columbus, Ohio with a visit to Sheryl’s brother and his family.
Thanks for going along on the ride with us! Keep following THE CAPS!
