We shopped while Rudy enjoyed a coke at the little Snak-shoppe next door.
Then we went by to see Bonnie at her job there, private sitting with Mrs. Walters
George and Laura (Bush) live there in the same neighborhood and we wanted to swing by and see their new house, but there were cops everywhere and Rudy's a chicken and wouldn't approach them so we didn't get to.
We did drive down Strait Street where the houses range from 7-40 million. Here's an example. Ross Perot lives there somewhere. His name was NOT on the mailbox...imagine that!
We left there and headed for Grapevine Mills mall where we did manage to get Whitney a couple pairs of walking shorts and a decent shirt (a rare find in this world!)
Then we headed on over to the airport to pick up "Senya", whose plane was (of course) delayed... (notice the NEW purse!)
We did all kinds of things to pass the time. I guess you could say we're not very patient people.
I really got annoyed at these people, who brought their cute little yapper dog into the airport. Do people not understand that DOGS are animals, they may be apart of the family , but they are still ANIMALS. Wonder what the authorities would do if I brought my pet St. Bernard with me? ( I dont really have a St. Bernard) This was one of two that we saw walking through the airport. The other one had a green dress on. Cute, but no less a DOG!
We actually laid eyes on her at about 7:00, and she would NOT smile for the camera, in fact I am lucky to even get this blurry image. She was very upset. It seems she had a really hard time getting through customs because she is staying for 4 months. They took her into an interrogation type room and questioned her profusely. They wanted to know WHY she was staying for 4 months... Senya is a very shy, sweet, girl and she was very scared and upset!
We stopped and ate at Saltgrass,on our way home , for the last time...Rudy got baked chicken and sausage, I got Chicken fried steak and the girls got chicken fried chicken. 4 drinks (Tea and sprite) and it was almost $100.00. O yeah that was the last time. Maybe I'm a tight-wad , but to me that was expensive! This little guy was sitting in the grass by our parking space. He just sat there and let us watch him.
At the end of the day we thanked God for our (and Yesenia's) safe travel. It was a very nice, long day!
