Today we took a day trip to Lake Jackson to see cousins Bill and Camie. We were suppose to meet them at their home at 3:00. We left alittle early since we had never been there and we knew that we would have to cross Houston. We did get a little lost. Or should I say that we adjusted our route a few times but we not only managed to find Lake Jackson, but we were early arriving. First let me say that they have a lovely, inviting home. You feel instantly "at home".
When I saw this wall of beautiful cabinets, I thought of Karen and Steve and their wall of cabinets. Bill and Camie travel a lot and their home reflects not only the joys of their many travels but of their love of family and friends.
I was immediately drawn to this Warren artwork. I called him "book man" but he has a much classier name. Of course I can't remember it. LOL
This is Happy Harry. He was born in Branson, Mo. He was carved from a single log. Notice the "Fonz" on the necklace. He was commissioned in 1976 and completed in 1977. Everyone has to have their picture made with him.
This, I was told, was a bottle brush bush. The flowers did look just like bottle brushes except for the beautiful red color. I must find out if these will grown at home.
After a wonderful visit, we headed back to the RV. I tried to get a shot of downtown Houston at night but my little camera wouldn't take one. This was the best I could get. It sure is pretty at night.
