Actually, how far are you from Abilene, Belle? I just took some friends from Canada who were visiting down to Fredericksburg for the day. It's a 3-hour drive (one way) from Abilene to Fredericksburg.
She lives east of Lampasas, teatime --- it's about 160 miles southeast of Abilene.

Thanks, case! LOL, I get all mixed up as to what is "central Texas." Heh, to me, Abilene is the start of West Texas but we're sometimes called "central Texas." AND "central West Texas," which confuses the heck out of me!

And every now and then on the Weather Channel, they call us north Texas. No wonder we are schizoid in Abilene.
