are having a good summer.
We have been busier than usual
well, I have been busier.
Husband is always busy and I just joined him

They make all kinds of products to feed
animals and things to plant.
When we were headed toward
these crazy, tall structures,

We ended up this tour with a stroll through
This gorgeous chandy was hanging by
their front door.
After lunch, the tour continued on to
the Vet Medicine College of
Texas A&M......and then the
College of Agriculture's new

This was the part of the tour

Our youngest daughter works at the
Bush School at Texas A&M.
She is an academic advisor for the
Master Degree Programs.
Here she is now....
She spoke to our groups and gave a small group of us
a tour of her office and
introduced us to
some of the people
she works with each day.
After lunch, we went
down the road
Royalty Pecan Farm.
My goodness, this was a pretty place.
I stood in the shade of this behemoth during part of the tour....
On Wednesday, the conference wrapped up with
the final business session
and everyone headed home!
I had a good time, met some lovely people
from different states, saw some very
interesting places and got to hang out a bit
with one of my
very favorite girlies!
Our week was not over, though.....

Thanks so much for letting me
share with you.
I'm so glad you stopped by!
What are you up to this summer?
Hugs and glitter,
