Today I had lunch at Shady Grove with Val White and Patricia Baxter. I had the Hippy Sandwich made with eggplant, red peppers, tomatoes and other veggies. It was very good.
Today is Patricia's first day as a retiree and she is getting ready to go to her place at Cloudcroft, New Mexico in a few days. First, though, she is going to a wedding this week end at Joshua (near Fort Worth). Then she'll be back in the Austin area for a couple of weeks before heading west. We'll miss her but, since her son lives here, she will be back often.
Val will be leaving tomorrow for a trip of about three weeks. I'll be lonely for a while but I know she'll have a good time.
