An Evening Spent With Friends Under A Texas "Tuscan" sky…priceless!

On our last night in Texas we spent the evening with  Raydean and Terry,  friends that go way back, 32 years.  Having never heard of the town of Driftwood, Stone and I ventured through the Texas Hill country to meet up with our friends at Trattoria Lisina, an Italian Restaurant and Winery.  We began our evening by sharing a bottle of Chianti.  The waiter made numerous trips over to take our order.  Because the four of us  do not see each other for long periods of time, we had to get caught up.  Finally we made  our menu selections.  Raydean and Terry split the lasagna, while Stone and I split the special of the day, a broiled white fish with potatoes and corn on the cob.  The portions where perfect and the food was delicious.
With our meal complete, we moved outdoors adjacent to a spectacular water fountain under the clear, darkening Texas sky and reminisced about stories of our children during our years in Uvalde, Texas.  The evening complete, we said our goodbyes and were already looking forward to our next meet up,  as Raydean exclaimed so profoundly, "an evening spent with friends under a Texas Tuscan sky"….PRICELESS!
