Carla Kerr Visits Family in Texas

April 30 - May 8, 2018 Carla visits family and friends in Texas

When we returned from the 20th Anniversary Red Hat Cruise, I immediately unpacked, did laundry and prepared food for my husband, Doug before flying to Fort Worth, Texas to visit my brother, diagnosed as terminally ill with cancer. While there, I visited with my son, Russ and daughter, Lynne. I also got acquainted with my 12th great grandchild, 6 month-old Alison Cromwell. One day, I even ventured over to Weatherford, Texas to have lunch with sister Red Hatters, Anna Colley and Barbara Farley.

I mostly stayed at my son's home in Springtown, Texas where he has a delightful Vokswagen Tiguan that he put at my disposal to get around in. I really like this vehicle! I hope you enjoy this pictorial depiction of my visit.

Russ has the most amazing magnet collection depicting his travels
I couldn't resist taking this picture of a photo of my granddaughter, Tiffany (Russ' daughter) who is now 27 years old

I couldn't resist going to our former home in Weatherford to take a picture of the pecan tree I planted about ten years ago. It has thrived well!

Wes decided he felt like helping and he's trying to get the weed eater started
I even helped by sweeping the porch and walkway
I tried to get a shot of Russ' guinea hens. Isn't this an adorable two-story cage!
This is a better shot of them.
It was a great visit and Wes and I had some time to reminisce and make new memories. The report is now that he may still be with us when I return for my 80th Birthday Party celebration. Lynne and Russ are hosting this at her house on August 11, 2018 at 2:00PM. If you know me, you will probably be receiving an invitation and I hope to see as many friends and relatives as possible.

This is all I have to say for now.
