What strange weather patterns we are having. Finally home from Port Arthur and Beaumont, Texas with great memories. 2 days of travel, 2 lectures, 2 classes, MUCH visiting, and resulting great artwork by students.
Was a bit like visiting my roots of Oklahoma. First day of travel from Houston Airport to Beaumont found me at a roadside cafe for a late lunch. There I was seated by Elrena Fontenot , a maybe 80 something BEAUTIFUL woman I swear must be a an unknown distant relative. She made me so comfortable, sounded so much like my Okie family speaks, that she brought me to happy tears. So... we took one picture but the camera was set on closeup so enjoy the blur... I bet you can see her great spirit through the fuzzy image.
