We met our friends from California, Linda and Martin, on the cruise we took to Australia several years ago and we've stayed in touch ever since. They came to see us once in San Francisco and we had a lot of fun hanging out there. Linda messaged me and asked if we were going to be in Amarillo on a certain date, as they were traveling through. We weren't going to be able to go to Amarillo but as we chatted back and forth, I realized that they would actually be closer to us when they got to Oklahoma, where they were visiting Martin's daughter and fiancé. We decided to take a quick little road trip to Duncan and meet them for the day.
After the pig show, we said our goodbyes and began the drive back to Dallas. It's only about three hours and we talked and played music along the way so it wasn't bad. Well, not till we got to Dallas, and the traffic was really backed up. We decided to get off the highway at not our usual exit and later wished we hadn't! Oh, I never mentioned that one of our first purchases when we moved to Dallas was to get both of us new smart phones. I have to say we love the GPS and it's helping us learn our way around Dallas as well as making travel easier!
It was great to see Linda and Martin again--they are both really nice people and we always have a lot to talk about. I hope we we get to see them again soon!
