Want to see some Awesome Travel Photos from Texas during 2017? As I think I have mentioned before (hundreds of times!) I love traveling in Texas.

I know I have just scratched the surface, but check out my amazing Texas travel photos!

Getting the “Johnson Treatment”! Couldn’t resist throwing in a photo of me with LBJ. If not for the Vietnam War escalation, I think he would have been known as one of our greatest presidents. His Great Society helped the poor and elderly tremendously.

Sanitary Bakery is now 600 Degrees Pizza! I’m glad they left the old sign.

I had a wonderful opportunity to be hosted by Fall Creek Vineyards for their annual Grape Stomp. I didn’t know what to expect (other than the I Love Lucy show), but it was so much fun I want to do it again! Thank you to Fall Creek Vineyards for having me! I loved it, and I highly recommend everyone go to it at the end of the summer!

My daughter, a photographer, surprised me with a trip to Ham Orchards in Terrell, Texas. It was late August, and the last weekend it was open for the year. I have to admit I had never heard of it. I have never tasted such fabulous produce. Peaches, blackberries, strawberries, and all the preserves! Photo by Alexandra Minton of Alexandra Minton Photography

I traveled to Austin quite a bit this year, my son and his wife now live there, and my first grandbaby was born in November! Adaline Rose is a dream come true! I am now a grandmother, as hard as it is (for me, anyway) to believe!
