This afternoon I sat in the warm sunshine visiting with a couple from Alaska, who are on an extended vacation. They plan to spend about a week in San Antonio and then head for Bryan, where they will store their motorhome. Then they'll fly back to Alaska. They have lived there for about thirty years, so it feels like home to them. They have a small house in the woods near Fairbanks.
Tonight I had dinner at Shady Grove with Val White and Carolyn Nottleson. Carolyn is in Austin for several days. She comes several times a year because her daughter and family live here.
