On Friday, I'm leaving to visit a very good friend who I've known since grade school. A couple years back he had a beautiful wedding out in Healdsburg, CA and shortly after he and his wife moved to Austin, TX. I've never heard anything unkind said about this big town. I have no expectations and do not know what they have planned for our first trip to their home. We arrive on Friday (late morning) and leave for home on Sunday evening so it will be a quick trip but I think we'll probably be heading down again as they seem to have settled into Austin and since Jet Blue now flies non-stop from Boston it is fairly easy to get there.
