Fayetteville Friends

After Oklahoma, we left I-40 and headed north to Fayetteville, AR, to see college friends Leon and Tawana West. They were our upstairs neighbors in Tallahassee, married student housing, 153 Bliss Drive, in the later 60s. Wes (Leon) got his doctorate in physics at FSU, and it was Tawana who interested Vicki in school library work. Like us, they have lived all over the country, but finally landed home, some years back, in Arkansas, where Wes is a professor of mechanical engineering and Tawana is a recently retired school librarian. They are also fellow world travelers. More great company and more great food. It was wonderful seeing them.
