It's another beautiful week in the Rio Grande Valley . . .

Recently had family in from out of town - Tricia Graham Craig (from Florida) and Terry Graham Hightower (from Houston). We went to a "new" old place . . . Friends Cafe in McAllen (formerly the Bean Cuisine in Mission). We all had the famous chicken envuelto dish that was just as good (if not better) than what we've been missing from our old favorite lunch spot!

Loved seeing several of the Las Islas Ranch Group folks at their regular lunch at The Office in McAllen. Among them were Beverly Moody, Rutha Drawe, Ellen Stone, Wileen King, Karen & David Peterson and Ryan Peterson. Thanks for letting me join you all - was lots of fun!

Enjoyed dinner with friends Christine & Brandon Wallace recently and enjoyed getting in a great visit.

Also recently had a great afternoon meet up with April Chapa and Veronica Cantu at Feldman's Market Center in McAllen.

Later that day, was delighted to bump into Aaron Fuentes and his beautiful wife Darlene and little-guy Nick. So good to see you guys! :)
