Day 64, Friday. The drive out of the Ozarks was fall foliage galore, then turned to plains and cows as we got to OK and TX. We were delighted to be staying with our niece and nephew, Allison Sample and Sang Pak, who just got married in April and moved to Dallas in June, where Sang is doing a fellowship in pediatric surgery at the Children’s Hospital and Allison is revolutionizing the personnel dept. at the Ally Bank here. Their duplex apartment is bright and spacious with high ceilings and high tech appliances and granite counters.
DAY 65: SAT.: Sang is on call today. We had a relaxed morning and then Allison gave us a tour of her neighborhood, then over to the swanky Highlands residential area on the way to have lunch with our ole friends from Denver, Rene and David Karp, who moved here years and years ago. One of their sons, Jon, and his wife Laurie and son Brady dropped in to see us. It was so much fun to catch up with them. David suggested that the Bush Library was interesting to see, in general and to see how history is rewritten to portray
Bush as a hero. Allison and I had to keep Lois muzzled throughout the visit.
DAY 66: SUN.: The highlight was nephew Rick and his son Rob Bradfield coming up from Waco to spend the day. Rene had recommended going to the Nasher Sculpture Center in downtown Dallas. It is an outstanding collection of modern sculpture that we greatly enjoyed. Rick then gave us a driving tour of downtown Dallas which has the most gigantic display of contemporary architecture that we have seen. They like to do things BIG here in Texas. We then returned home for a gala Korean pork dinner. Allison showed her culinary prowess and we all enjoyed visiting with each other.
