“We sit in the mud…and reach for the stars.” ~ Ivan Turgenev
Twenty years together is a milestone for a married couple, but it seems like yesterday that he and I made the transition from friends to lovers. Where does the time go? Oh yeah. I forgot about the four kids we threw into the mix. That really eats into the daytime hours.
The first week of October in Houston, coupled with even the slightest drop in temperature (woke up to 58, a high of 82 today!), gets us itching for one of two things: camping or beach going. As it may be another month before the mosquitoes will even allow us to camp comfortably (i.e., they are completely gone), we opted for the beach instead. The kids, of course, couldn’t wait to put their little toes in the
Mississippi silt Galveston sand. Mom and Dad had other plans; we wanted a few fall migratory birds for our list.
