We got to Dallas around mid-day and checked into Baileyâ€™s Uptown Inn. The inn is within walking distance of our nephew, Andyâ€™s, apartment. We schlepped all our stuff upstairs to our room only to discover after an hour or so that the air conditioning was not working upstairs. So poor John schlepped all downstairs to a queen size room (boo). A downside of inns is that there is usually no elevator and no one to help with the luggage.
We walked over to Andyâ€™s and we were so excited to see him in his new life as up and coming Texas Instruments employee. He is very happy and is looking forward to getting married next year and buying a house. We went out to dinner at the Hibiscus Grill. The food was excellent and we spent a few hours talking about his hopes for the future and discussing the world situation. It was fun and interesting.
