Good Times A Comin'




Texas is supposed to be in the South and the South is supposed be warm and even hot, right? Somebody didn’t give the right order then because it is cold, cloudy, and damp. But my spirits aren’t ! It is beautiful here at the lake.


I had a great flight down here. I saw the most majestic thunderheads while on the plane that I have ever seen as we approached Austin and the pilot managed to miss most of them. The peanuts were delicious as well!


I am here for my first-born grandson’s wedding. From all I have heard so far it is going to be a very busy week. Julie and her husband have been working cleaning everything in sight—the kayaks (I couldn’t get my butt down in one and worse I could never get out again if I did), the boat, every nook and cranny of the lake house—even the motorcycle if one of the guests choose to ride it.


The rehearsal dinner is going to be on a cruise ship on a different lake located in the city and the wedding will take place outside of a barn on a ranch and the reception held in aforementioned barn. I guess this is la rigeur for dreamworks weddings here.


People will start coming in on Wednesday and from then on it is go go go. I don’t know if this ole gal can take all this excitement!!!!

Julie is out planting flowers in pots on the pier. Everyone has big elaborate piers down here as they don’t have to take them down for the winter. Some even have second stories!


It’s going to be a great ride and we will send some pictures of the big event. And I hope to get to answer some of your comments sometime soon. I want to thank you for all your kind responses to my last post. This is not my computer. I think I will have to get a new one. The last one has served me well.

Have a lovely time down there is Texas. The only time I was there it was very hot and very humid (Houston and Dallas), but sorry it is so cold. Hope the wedding goes well.

Hope you have a wonderful time at the wedding, Bernie. I'd love to go to Texas some day, it seems like such an intriguing place. And don't worry about computer problems, your brilliant posts are well worth the wait :)

You'll have a blast! Nothing better than being busy with fun things like weddings..looking forward to the pics. Sorry about your computer, but the thought of a new one would be exciting!

I hope the entire time is wonderful for you all. Give Julie a hug for me - I think she might need one. Great pictures of you!

I've been keeping up with the wedding plans on Julie's blog. Did you have as much fun getting a 'dress' as Julie did or was it easier for you, Bernie?
Enjoy the all excitement with your family!
♥...Wanda

Hi Bernie!
Austin is wonderful. We lived in Round Rock for 3 years. I think I know the area that you are staying in...

It's really laid back in Austin. I didn't want to move to Dallas. We hardly ever wore pants.. mostly shorts and t-shirts, but we carried that custom to Dallas with us.

You have fun, and jot notes down for us. I hope the sun comes out for you, but if it does, please wear sunscreen.

Enjoy your adventure, and congratulations to the bride and groom.

Bernie, you will have a ball! Sounds like a gala event. Be sure to tell us all about it. Best Wishes to the Bride and Groom!

And so the last countdown begins. Can you believe this weather we're having? I had to wear a jacket this morning!

Well looking forward to seeing you Saturday, Bernie. It should be a wedding to remember.

Best,
Kimber

As someone born on the Gulf Coast -can't get much more south than that and stay in the US - be thankful it is not hot and humid. You can put on a sweater, but sweating at a wedding is not good. Have a wonderful time.

Love Texas! Our daughter lives in Conroe with her husband and daughter. The place you describe sounds beautiful! You paint pictures with your words...((Hugs))

"Dreamworks weddings"! I'm looking forward to hearing all about it.
I expect it will be a glimpse into how that other half lives. :-)
