The Texas AR gathering

Real Estate Agent with Sky Realty South Austin

HI Gang,

I would like to say a huge ThANK YOU TO RICKI and CHERLI LYNN and JUDY MORGAN for all your hard work.. the POMAROSA is a lovely spot and I hope you sell it soon.  THANK YOU RICKI AND CHERLI LYNN AND JUDY for all the tremendous work in getting this together and pulling off a great afternoon for everyone.

Saturday was a great time ..  my friend from my office Celina Garza and I had a great trip down to Bandera, a couple of hours drive, we stopped at the Cracker Barrel for breakfast on the way and got there in plenty of time.

We met, Ricki Eickler and her office buddy CheriLynn, both lovely warm ladies, then Judy Morgan, what a warm welcome they gave us.  Then we met Eduard Lui of Georgetown, very pleasant man and his beautiful wife and children.

Tom Plant from California had flown in for the gathering and was a welcome guest.  Carl Winters and his charming wife Ceil, were warm and friendly folks displaying that great Texas hospitality.   Soon, Debra Brooks and her husband arrived and Debra is as lovely in person as she is on AR.

Lots of good AR folks showed up but unfortunately I didn't meet them all... alot happening.. .the food was good and Judy Morgan's bread pudding was a real hit so tasty.. but I have a craving for some more of that cherry cobbler, who ever brought it it was wonderful!!

Since I had a big day scheduled for Sunday I had to leave at 6PM, we got home about 8:20 so I made it in time to get all my prep done for my Sunday tours, I met with a really nice young couple from out of town toured Kyle.

Wow! I can't imagine how we missed each other. Glad you were able to be there. Have a great week and give me a call sometime when you are in Round Rock and we can get some coffee.

Gail - Carl just left for his Monday morning inspection, but asked me to let you know he did read your blog and to say he was glad to have the opportunity to meet you and so many others at the BBQ. He never did get over to the game of dice you were playing but walked by and said it sounded like you were having fun. He was on his way out to step up to the challenge match of horseshoes with Ricki; which Ricki made a ringer and Carl made none. It was good you and Celina drove down together and stopped off at Cracker Barrell for breakfast. Yes, we also had many good snacks to munch on before we had that delicious BBQ; not to mention all the desserts. There was enough food left over to have gone back another day to do it all over again.
