A Busy Week for Me!

Hello Glitterinas!

I hope you are staying cool and 
are having a good summer.

We have been busier than usual 
around here.....

well, I have been busier.

Husband is always busy and I just joined him 
for a trip he took to one of 
his professional organization's 
regional meetings.

This year Texas was the host,
so we didn't have to travel very far.

The seven state organization has members 
from....













and...


The three day conference was filled with visits to 
lots of interesting, mostly agricultural sites.

Monday started with a visit to 
Producers Co-operative.

They make all kinds of products to feed 
animals and things to plant.

When we were headed toward
 these crazy, tall structures, 
I told the person I was walking with
"Wow, I hope we get to go up there!"

That was followed by loud laughter....
I can't go up much higher than the 
second rung on a ladder!



This robotic arm was inside the plant.....


.....it was working very hard 
slinging fifty pound feed sacks onto 
pallets.

Next, we visited Messina Hof winery.







We ended up this tour with a stroll through 
their shoppe.

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 
building out on the West Campus.

Tuesday found us on our way to 
The George Bush Presidential Library.



This was the part of the tour 
I was most excited about.



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.

Thanks, Ashley!

After lunch, we went 

                                                                  way 
way
                       way

down the road 
to
 Royalty Pecan Farm.

My goodness, this was a pretty place.





I stood in the shade of this behemoth during part of the tour....


.....so beautiful!

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.....

more on that next time, Glitterinas!

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,
Tammy
