RE: frost warning

Glad you had a good time, Tricia! 

DH and I have found it depressing to "go back" to previous homes.  One in
Indianapolis that we renovated when the girls were tiny was boarded up with
broken windows and no landscaping was sad.  Another one in Indianapolis that
we built was painted a bright orange and had other changes that made us
cringe.  At least at the 2nd house, all the plantings we put in were still
there and going strong.  

I'm so glad your experience was better and the home owners were good
natured!  It's also great that the weather cooperated for your trip.  (I
hope your tender items make it through O.K.)

We just got home from our trip to Houston, Beaumont and Nederland.... to
find that we must have had frost while we were gone with a freeze warning
for tonight.  I went ahead and spread some sheets over my pineapple sage,
Mexican bush sage, and 3 fall tomatoes (that are full of green tomatoes). 
Everything but the tomatoes looked ok... but they looked like they have
already been blasted with cold.

We had a wonderful time.  We took our 17 year old son back to see where he
was born.  We moved to New Mexico when he was only 1 year old so he doesn't
really remember living there at all.
  We went up to the house that we owned and met the new owners... they were
so sweet... took us on a tour.  The house looked great but they have cut
down all the trees.  We had the most glorious oak in the backyard... they
said it caused too much trouble with the pool... which I am sure but I wish
they had just pruned it instead of taking it down.  We had too many pines in
the front but they are all gone now.  It is always interesting to see what
someone else does with your house.
Thanks Noreen and everyone for advice on the weather before we went.  It
turned out to be beautiful... it only rained on us on Saturday when we were
sitting in Sartin's eating seafood... wonderful seafood!
