This morning I visited my friends a little while and then said my good-byes. I needed to get back to Austin a little earlier than I usually do so I could be settled back into my site at Pecan Grove before my brother, Carl, arrived from Houston for a short visit.
While Carl was here I took advantage of his strong hands to have him replace the curtain carriers in the cab. More than half of the original ones had broken so I was having to use twist ties to hold the curtain hooks. It looks so much better now – not to mention that it is also much more convenient. This evening we had dinner at Papacito’s. Then it was time for Carl to head back to Houston.
