Made the drive to the Dallas area to visit Sprout #3 and play a little golf with the Texan. I was struck by the increased greening of the countryside as we drove further southeast. Praise God Texas is getting some rain! We've had some good rains in central Texas and we're beginning to see (maybe?) the loosening grip of the devilish drought.
No spring-time trip in Texas is complete without the obligatory photo of the bluebonnets. The Sprout and Texan coaxed me out of the car to pose in this field of road-side wildflowers. As I knelt down to get close to bursting blooms for the photo, I THOUGHT I heard the Sprout yelling, 'Be sexy!' Therefore, I obediently laid on my side and gave the Texan my best sexy pout for the camera-phone. When I returned to the car, the disgusted Sprout explained he was shouting, 'DON'T be sexy!'
Must have been the noise of traffic whizzing by....or old age. Can't. help. myself.
I thought you'd enjoy seeing my blue photo.

Driving back to Amarillo, we stopped at a cool trailer place. You see, I've been without horse-wheels for a while now. It's complicated, but I sold my truck and trailer years ago and relied on my horse trainer to haul my horse to shows for me. He moved downstate and I was left with horses, but no way to haul them. The Texan helped me solve this dilemma. I can borrow his red truck and pull this sweet little number down the road.
Now....for the most splendiforous news. Steady yourself. Really.
Sprout #3 (first in our hearts!) asked darling J to marry him!

We think it's the smartest thing he's ever done. We ADORE her. We're giddy with excitement for these two extraordinary young people. Guess that means there's gonna be a wedding! Fun times. We feel profoundly blessed.
Thanks for sharing all this news with me, kind reader. I couldn't wait to tell you this stuff!
Bluebonnet-y love to all.
