its a perfect
24 hour trip

cant wait,
i have never been to texas.
and havent been anywhere even in the vacinity
except for one trip
about 38 years ago
(of which i remember very little)

so i am greatly looking forward to it..

not to mention
the excitement of the
country living fair
which is always fabulous

so if any of you are coming to the fair,
please stop in and say hi,
introduce yourself

one of my favorite things about  traveling to shows
is meeting people i 'know' online.
