I desperately needed to see my daughter and grand-kids. So me and my son headed out. Off we went from Minnesota.
We headed south with the sunset in the west.
We drove through Iowa, Missouri, Oklahoma, then Texas.
We saw the big windmills, and a water fall (in Texas) on the way.
In Corpus Christi we toured through the Lexington; and can you believe it, it was cold, about 45 degrees. I was expecting it to be at least 70.
This is nothing like Minnesota.
It was a little warmer one day, so we went to the beach. We were invaded by black birds–the Great-tailed Grackle. I put out some sunflower seeds and they came pretty close to me.
We were there for a week, and I feel confident that I accomplished my main purpose—to let my grand-kids see me and get to know me.
Splendid adventure! Cute grandkids! Nice photographs! Plus, whenever I see a great-tailed grackle I am reminded that God could have made me a grackle but (thankfully) chose rather to make me the human I am (and redeemed me in Christ, too!). Since this is the Thanksgiving season, see “Of Grackles and Gratitude”, posted at https://www.icr.org/article/6900/ .
Thanks James for commenting. I’m so glad God didn’t make me a Grackle. That bird is evil looking and you always have a feeling that he wants to peck your eyes out if given a chance. But I know God had a reason for creating him. Do you know? I guess I could study and think on it. Thanks for the article.
