Yesterday, I slept in big time. I didn’t even open my eyes until almost 10:30, which, for me, is the middle of the day! It’s around 8:30 now, and I’m working on a bowl of room service oatmeal as we speak.
Niece/assistant Jen and I trekked off to Dallas’s West End Center, where the “Taste of Dallas” festival was going on. We had lunch at TGI Friday’s, and then shopped. I found a wonderful Western wear store, and bought this great leather shawl type thing, trimmed with fringe (Oh, Linda LIKES fringe!) and studded with turquoise, etc. Jazzy! (And the boots! WOW! But I’m holding out for a pair with rhinestones.) Also visited a store called “The Bath Junkie”–I definitely qualify–and bought one of those big balls that fizz in your bathwater and make you smell good. Dinner was at a steak house–it had a German name–where we were served by Ray, the nicest waiter I’ve ever encountered. If you’re going to be in Dallas, do visit the West End Center and say Hello to Ray. Tell him I sent you.
Today, more shopping! I’ve hired a car, and Jen and I are going to hit a few of the malls. Not surprisingly, the last stop of the day will be at one of those mailing places. Going back home tomorrow, in the early afternoon, so I’ll blog at least once more from Dallas.
