I've known Karen since eighth grade, and we shared classes, interests and employers all the way through college. She and her husband live in the Atlanta area, and unfortunately we see very little of each other. She was in Houston visiting Swati, another great friend -- since ninth grade -- and another T-84 alum. They were both in our wedding, more than 12 years ago now!
We spent a few hours at Swati's charming home, then ate a late lunch at Niko Niko's. Mmmm, falafel. Then we went to the Children's Museum of Houston, which we first visited in February 2005 with Uncle Jim.
We look like giants in the Alice's Wonderland room. (Thanks, Steve, for being the official photographer!)
The reunion was much too short, and we were back home by 10:30 Saturday night. We learned the hard way that, while the Honda Civic is excellent for long drives because of its gas mileage, it's not very comfy.
