To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

BEAUTIFUL TEXAS WINERY AND BBQ
We have a date....
It's our wedding anniversary
we have just discovered
a hidden gem!
Miss Catherine attended a bridal luncheon
at Mitas Hill last weekend and
just happened to leave her cell phone behind.
So the darling and I offered to drive out
and pick it up for her!
This is very close to our home
would you believe we had no idea this gorgeous winery
was even here!
This turned out to be a delightful
discovery for us, so we plan to return
for an afternoon in October
and have a date for our anniversary in November!
Just look at how lovely the ground are!!!
This is their steakhouse...
Please reserve the table in front of the fireplace for me....
Hey...who needs Napa Valley?
We have our own gorgeous winery
within a minutes drive in the great state of Texas!
We drove out in the countryside to locate the winery
and passed some gorgeous country estates!
This particular home caught my eye...
the most magnificent trees ever!
This home sits at the end of a road
and is just the most beautiful picturesque setting!
Oh, how I would love to sit on their porch
with a glass of sweet tea!!
We met them for dinner to deliver
the missing cell phone
which is a barbecue place halfway between the two of us!
This is Hard 8!
They catered Nick and Cat's wedding reception!
What a delicious way to end the day!
You just have to luv Texas!
