    Thanks Bill,
    I had fun at Somos San Antonio. It's nice to know that some people are still interested in preserving and documenting San Antonio's past. Jessie

    Since I'm fairly new to San Antonio, it was very interesting to see some of the historic buildings that now no longer exist.

    A friend and I are going to Round Rock that morning to visit the IKEA store. I can't imagine that I wouldn't be back in time to attend this event, but if I'm not there at 5:30, don't wait for me.

    Rats, wishing I could be 2 places at once. As I just resigned my teaching position and am looking for employment, I'll be spending my Thursday evenings at Oak Hills Church taking advantage of their wonderful resource/ministry affectionately known as CTW (for Career Transition Workshop), ongoing for 11 years straight. If you are in this same boat, contact me and I'll meet you there and introduce you to the awesome Mentors in the ministry!

    Y'all have fun at the reception!
