Saturday, March 21st

After a quick breakfast with E, I drove to Lufkin with a couple of stops along the way at historical markers...I even learned something about East Texas history!!

I went straight to my brother's house and we got started going through his closet and we made the 3 piles...throw away, give away and keep. When it was time for lunch, we had 3 bags ready to go to Goodwill. We had hamburgers at the Angelina County Airport. I had heard for several years how good their hamburgers were and now I can add my recommendations...big, juicy, fresh vegetables...very good!(I completely forgot to take a picture of our hamburgers and onion rings.) This is a small airport (no commercial flights) and so many people fly in just to eat! They serve breakfast and lunch and busy everyday, the lady told us. It was a beautiful day for being in the air and we enjoyed watching the small...1 or 2 passenger ...planes come and go.

While we were driving on the airport property, I was taken down memory lane by seeing the crawdad mounds.

After finishing up with my brother's closet, we tackled the dresser drawers and finally the rest of his bedroom. Another bag was ready for giving away and a couple of bags for the trash.

We drove by the 2 houses that we had lived in as we were growing up and enjoyed talking about memories we had. We went to a couple of stores to replace some of the clothes we had gotten rid of during the afternoon cleaning.
We went to Appleby's for dinner and we both got salads. He had the Fried Chicken Salad and I chose the Chili Lime Chicken Salad. They were both very good.

It was time to settle down for the night after a day of accomplishing much.
