David, my oldest son, arrived in Austin at 2:45 this afternoon on the same flight Mike took out of Atlanta a day earlier. David has been very active the last couple of years and is fit, and looks great. Mike and I will have a hard time keeping up with him.
Once home, I went over the itinerary with David. Of course, the locations we marked on the maps made little sense to David, but he knew how important they were to us.
Earlier, David confessed to me that he is a little concerned about Mike and me because we have been known to get a little rowdy when together. It’s usually Mike’s fault. I promised we would behave. I guess no Jim Beam and Coke on the trip!
