Wordless Wednesday...You CAN Go Home Again!

 

There’s an old saying that you can’t go home again. And to some extent that would be true. People change, places change, streets change!

 

However...Houston still has horrific traffic, it still has a million good restaurants, and the people are still the friendliest you’d find anywhere.

Who says you can’t go home again??!!



I once joked in a book that there are three things you can't do in life. You can't beat the phone company, you can't make a waiter see you until he is ready to see you, and you can't go home again. Since the spring of 1995, I have been quietly, even gamely, reassessing point number three. Bill Bryson

I remember when I first moved to Houston I was struck by how nice people are. That...and how much they know about High School Football.

Kathy,

What a beautiful picture of the family and of you with the two cherubs.  Personally, I feel that you are always home as long as you are with the right people as you are in this instance.   Home is where I am right now with Ron regardless of what the geography says.  A

Hi Kathy,
So happy to see you enjoying family after your move back to Houston.  It must ease the pain of moving away from the beach.

We are fortunate that we live in this time, Kathy.  I remember reading an old journal of a woman who traveled from the midwest to the west during the 1850s via wagon train.  She lamented about leaving her mother, sister and two brothers behind in Missouri, and knowing she would likely never see them again.  In today's world, they would only be a couple hours away. And, rather than letters via pony express, there are text messaging, cellphone calls, and Skype.

Morning Kathy.

I loved it when we lived in Houston.  Don't know that I would move back, but I would like to live back somewhere,  in Texas.
