Don't Mess with Texas!

Big trucks, big hats, big buildings, and lots of food. I'm still not sure how I feel about Texas. I'll tell you one thing though I did like the first visitors station that I stopped at.

They had a great memorial to WWII soldiers. I drove and drove through Texas...first Dallas/Fort Worth and I stopped for the night in Waco, TX. I didn't do much in terms of sight seeing I think at that point I was just too tired. I drove the next day through Austin where I saw a restaurant called Baby Acapulco also known as Baby A's. I really need to eat there. I have a feeling that Texas may just be able to handle my love of Mexican food, BBQ, and beer. It's also a great place if you love country music and rodeos.

So I drove through Austin and made my way to San Antonio. I got lost once but other wise found my apartment complex without too many problems. I had a nightmare in the first apartment they gave me. I don't think I can describe it but I found out that they hadn't cleaned it yet. So they set me up in another apartment that seems to be more to my liking and is clean. It's no where near as nice as my 1000 sq ft two bedroom with a balcony in Saint Cloud but it's cute and cosy for here in Texas. I have some pictures of it empty...I'll take some more once I get my furniture all set up.

Welcome to Texas! I hope you'll find your congregation has hearts as big as their hair and the state.

Thanks for the advice. I'm sure like most things in Texas they will be big also.

There must be a more gracious way to do this, but it is time: Niki died last week and was laid to rest today on a rainy hillside in the fall colors in Hastings Minnesota. I'll put pictures from this morning on my blog a little later today.

Niki, you touched a lot of lives. Thank you, and peace to you.

We had a memorial service at Andover Newton Theological School last night for Nicki. Both Zebrafeet and I have "Ten Memories of Nicki" on our blogs if you want to check them out, and maybe use the idea yourselves.

She will be missed, and forever our friend.
