174/365 Happy Talk

Letty and I had lunch today at Afrah, a wonderful middle-eastern restaurant. Letty is from Mississippi. When she speaks in her lovely genteel accent and her beautifully graceful hands talk, I am mesmerized. Letty calls me Meliss... my Mom called me Meliss... 

She'll probably laugh when she reads this...

170/365 A Happy Father's Day

Here is Dad, having a great day. He's reading about the Mavericks' National Championship and "Your Teacher Said What!?" written by Joe and Blake Kernen, plus, he's wearing his new wide brim hat, a gift for his trip to Africa! Our boys made him feel special all day long.

169/365 Sunset

Caught this beautiful sunset as we were entering a restaurant.
Upon reviewing this shot, that board that is sticking out kinda looks like a guillotine... hmmm... I'm sure it was for a vertical sign, right?

168/365 Green Zone

Tonight we went to The Green Zone to see Samantha in a production of Burt Royale's, Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead. The play is definitely edgy, and well played by the cast, especially Samantha. James is so proud of her!

165/365 James is 21!

Look out world, James is celebrating his 21st birthday!

This year James asked for a coconut cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory (OK, I added the coconut =]). Yummy!
I should have made him blow out 21 candles. What was I thinking?

We celebrated at Joe's Crab Shack with Samantha, and Justin was our waiter! Of course, he helped celebrate with us.

162/365 Gruene

Bill snapped this shot in front of Gruene Hall in Gruene, Texas. His two brothers, Mark & Mike, flew down from Maryland to join us in celebrating their parents' 60th wedding anniversary.

In this shot: Alex, me, Vince, Mark & Mike.

161/365 60th wedding anniversary

This evening we celebrated Bill's parents' 60th wedding anniversary atop the Tower of the Americas!

These first two photos were taken before we ascended...

We ate a superb meal, followed by a scrumptious cake!  I love using that word - scccrrrummmmmptious!

Ruth and Vince are amazing, and I'm so glad we had the opportunity to celebrate together!

San Antonio sunset, from the tower. What a wonderful day!

159/365 Passionflower

Passionflowers have always intrigued me. They are so beautiful and also functional for teas and medicinal uses. I've also heard that they represent Jesus' passion: the 3 stamen represent his wounds and the 12 petals represent his 12 disciples (this flower only has 10 petals; maybe the final 2 have not opened, or perhaps they are behind the other petals).

156/365 Organist/Choirmaster

This is David, our organist/choirmaster; it was only fair to make him wear the hat
since he makes us wear it on our birthdays! I think we made him blush ;)

152/365 Another birthday

Bill turns 57!

Wow! I am so behind on posting! Who knows when I will catch up?! I can't say that this 365 blog has photos that were taken each day of the year, but *most* days of the year. :0)
