The Elmores live in a western suburb of Houston, about 16 miles from the city center. This is where Jenny grew up, along with her brothers, where they went to school, etc. The neighborhood has changed dramatically over the decades they have lived there. Today it is dominantly Asian. As you drive down Bellaire Boulevard near their house, it is one Asian restaurant and business after another. Good eating!

We had a lovely meal with them Tuesday evening and got in a walk in their neighborhood Wednesday morning. It was a short visit but a very nice one. We'll hope to see them in Alpine again.
On our way back from Houston to Columbia, we stopped in Texarkana for supper. There is a Road Food restaurant there called Bryce's Cafeteria which was already in existence when I lived there in 1941, and since it was located at that time downtown, not far from Dad's church, we probably ate there when I was 8 years old or so. It's still going and is one of the few classic cafeterias still in existence.
