Had an enjoyable time this weekend with the Buck and Marie Bakken family and Janie Lagrone. Our first stop was at the beach on Galveston Island. I remember going there on my senior trip in 1966. Things are different.

We enjoyed walking on the beach and playing in the sand. I loved picking up shells. None of them are the same. I got to see Janie’s newly bought townhouse for the first time. It is really nice. Granddaughter Hannah Bakken loved going up and down the stairs.
