Linda and I were roommates at BYU for one semester before Kelly and I got married. She and I haven't kept in touch very well over the years, but she surprised us with a visit the last few days and we had a ball. She arrived Thursday at lunch time, so I planned a luncheon with two others, Paige and RuthAnn, to welcome Linda. We had a nice light lunch with a deluxe salad, complete with Linda's favorite ingredients. Afterwards, the kids came home from school and Linda got to meet them one at a time, and get acquainted. Our next two days with Linda was so delightful. Lindsey and Christopher enjoyed meeting with my college girlfriend and getting to know her.
Both kids adored Linda and could tell she is really nice and why I love being around her.
She's really got flair!
We did our normal adventures when we have guests pop in to see us for a few days, like heading up to Mount Bonnell, this time to see the view at night.
We visited the capital of Texas and here we are laughing hard over something and Lindsey snapped it.
We walked around the capital and everyone was blaming Linda for bringing the chilly weather with her from Chicago. She loaned me some gloves to help my hands stay warm.
Lindsey was named after two people, and this sweet friend of mine, is one of them. Lindsey is named Lindsey Elizabeth after my friend, Linda Elizabeth. The other person (Rebekah's mother) is no longer with us.
We took Linda to see where Kelly works and here we are in the elevator at his office building.
It's always a must to take our out-of-town guests to the County Line to experience Texas barbecue. Linda loved it. (Heidi, one of these days, when you come to Austin, I'll take you there.)
It's been a little more than four years since her husband's airplane accident when she became a widow. Brian and Linda had only been married about three years and had planned to have children, but hadn't yet before then. So I guess she'll have to come out to Austin more often so I can share mine with her! We love you, Linda! You're welcome any time.
