Ralna's Lubbock Friends & Family

photo%2019.JPG My sister Sharon and brother-in-law, Carl,
came in from Dallas for the performance.
Any time spent with them
is always treasured by me.

Here I am with my precious niece, Michelle, who like Julie, is a teacher.
Can you tell I adore her?!

photo%2021.JPG Michelle had three children...in this order: Shea, Taylor and Clay. Taylor is in school in Dallas and could not make it. Here I am with Texas Tech student Shea, and eighth-grader, Clay.

at an 'upscale boutique' near the campus.
Here she is giving her
Great-Aunt Ralna a new look.

I was so touched that good friends, Burns and Ginalu, opened their beautiful home to many of my old school chums with a lovely party.photo%2023.JPG

creation carved by his
own two hands.

Aren't my high school friends beautiful?!

photo%2029.JPG Early the next morning, I went to the mall and got my ears pierced for the second time. It was scary the second time too!

Then my Lubbock High friends and I went to lunch and everyone had a great time. I truly love these longtime friends. (l. to r. top row): Jan, Donna, Karen, Nicky, and Pat. (l. to r. bottom row): Ralna and Ann. photo%2030.JPG
