Monday Drive

This picture covers a multitude of subjects. First, it shows the sea of flowers that has blanketed Texas this spring...a glorious spring for wildflowers. The bluebonnets come out first, then the other wildflowers and grasses grow taller. The season has already peaked. Secondly. the spot resides in Goliad County, where the rattlesnakes grow exceptionally large and are found is great numbers. Needless to say, I treaded with apprehension. Finally, the view resides in a cemetery.

I'm well into the genealogy of my husband's family. We set out Monday on a fact finding mission. First stop was the Goliad County Library and their archives. Then, lunch! Always one of the best parts of any excursion. Next came the courthouse. I discovered it is much easier to get into the public records than to board a plane. No waiting; no pat downs; no showing of ID's. Clerks willingly gathered materials and offered instructions and encouragement. Interesting and fun.

Hi Judy,
Thank you so much for the awesome black vera wang leggings which are fab!! I am so excited to wear them with a tunic and a pair of boots. Great buying!
Also, thanks for all the great shoes for the girls - the size 5's are a perfect fit. Pippa has been walking around in the brown dress shoes for the last two days!
Hope you have had a happy mothers day - i had my first mothers day as a mum of three. Thanks again and much love from amy xxxxxx
