I'm headed to San Antonio this week.
I will not count this as completing No. 34, though.
I am going for a funeral. That is not fun.
But it won't be too awful. It just won't be a long enough trip. I won't get to do all the things I want to do.
I will get to see my sweet friend, Liddy, and her family.
Liddy and Me, 1972. 41 years ago. Wow!
She hasn't aged at all. Me?? Maybe a tiny bit.
I will get to stay at my most favorite hotel in San Antonio, right on the riverwalk.
And I will see some old friends. Old in that I have known them a long time, not that they are considered old.
But my real plans for San Antonio would include museums:
I want to see this treehouse.
I'm a kid at heart.
the McNay Art Museum.
Don't think I have ever been here-
or don't remember if I have.
I love museums.
And I'd like to go to el Mercado
and to the Japanese Tea Garden which we always called the Sunken Garden when I was a kid.
This was one of my favorite places when I was little.
And I'm sure there are other things I could come up with...that I just can't think of right now because I should be packing my bags to leave town.
(Like the rest of Brackenridge Park and the San Antonio Zoo and the Buckhorn Museum and even the Alamo.)
But until I can do my real No. 34, I will settle for some time here:
And next time I go to San Antonio, I will go for fun. And you will hear all about it.
