Ooops--Missed Post from Abilene

I thought I had more photos from Abilene and just found them in the wrong folder on my computer! On my last day in town, I met some friends for lunch and kept Aidan and Ally while Susan was at work. I love Hickory Street Cafe and its world famous chicken salad and zucchini bread! My sweet friend Paula had lunch with us--we went to high school together many years ago and then worked together at the Rehab for several years (also pretty far back now!) We hadn't seen each other in a long time but reconnected on Facebook. It was great to see her and catch up a little bit. We also had fun chatting with Judy and Jean. Thanks, gals, for making the time to come see us!

After lunch, I had a little bit of time to kill before Susan got off work so stopped by West Texas Rehab, where I worked for many, many years. I hadn't been there in quite awhile. Here's Jean, who had lunch with us but I failed to get her photo there, and another long time dear friend, Mary Lou. It was old-home week at Rehab, with several former employees now working there again. I felt like I'd never left!

And my friend Kim with one of her patients--so good to see her after all this time. I also got to see several more old friends but my camera died so it's not documented. :(

Darling Ally riding in the car. What a sweet girl!

Aidan, our Number One Boy.
After Rehab, we met up with Susan and ran to see Karen at her office before I boarded the plane. Karen's mom has been in the hospital so we had not been able to get together during our short visit, but couldn't leave town without a quick chat and lots of hugs. And we're sending up lots of good wishes for her mom.

Gigi and Aidan (almost getting too big for my lap but I don't want to give that up!)

Susan about to take me to the airport. Goodbyes are no fun! We had a great time and I am looking forward to the next trip, as always! Love y'all!
