This afternoon Carl drove up from Houston to visit with me for a little while. He attended the vespers service with me (it was my turn to play the piano tonight) and then he took me out to dinner at Shrimpboat Manny’s Seafood. They specialize in Cajun food, which I love. He headed back home around 8:00 o’clock. At least, now that I’m much closer to Houston, it isn’t such a long, tiring drive.
