A pleasant day-trip

Today we went to see my sister-in-law and her husband. They live over on the northeast part of the Dallas area, in a city called Garland. Margie was nineteen when Rick was born, so she has ended up being more like a really, really awesome mother-in-law than a sister-in-law. An absolute gem of a person.

Her husband Bob is a few years older and his health has declined in recent years, but we had a very nice visit with him. I played the piano for him and he seemed to enjoy this quite a bit.

He even let me take his picture!

We're trying to get them to move up in our direction so we can help her care for Bob (and help her care for herself, too). Garland's a nice place, but it's over an hour away and it would be nice if we could have her a little closer.
