In Houston

We are wrapping up our vacation back in Texas. I'm sitting at my mom's computer and we are getting ready for bed prior to our return trip back to LA. We covered a lot of ground, spending Saturday through Wednesday in Port Lavaca at Jacki's mom's, seeing many in her family, and then Wednesday night through Saturday morning at my mom's in Houston, spending time with my mom, lisa and her friends and then breaking away to see my dad.

We saw King Kong, a dud, hit Pappasitto's twice, so against the diet, saw my dad's new house he is building in Houston, saw Narnia, not too bad, and Darian and I learned about Sudoku.

Once we get back I'll post pictures from the trip. Oh and pepper doesn't look so good :-(

Can't wait to get back home. Houston is where I grew up but it no longer feels like home to me.

On the way to Texas

We are at the airport and on the way to Texas. We had little scare when the parking lot I normally park in was full. The front entrance was blocked, but after we drove around the back entrance the workers let us in and showed us where to park.

Next were the really long lines at the airport. It turns out my Delta platinum card works with Continental so I was able to skip the line to get the boarding passes as well as the line to go upstairs to the screening.

And even better, we are no sitting in the Continental lounge with wifi access. We are about an hour and half early since we were able to skip all of the lines, but if I had planned on it then nothing would have gone our way.

I'll write next from Texas.

New clothes

The nutrisystem is paying off. After seeing how big some of my jeans, and shorts have gotten I decided it was time to go and get some new clothes. We had quite a few coupons for the Gap so thats where we went.

It was the first time in a long while where shopping for clothes actually was fun and not depressing. Clothes fit much better and I was actually able to drop a pants size and get a new belt. My old belt had also gotten to large as I was on the verge of creating a new hole in the belt to make it a smaller size.

Hopefully this is the first of many trips for new clothes.

Bob Schneider

A little taste of Austin made it to LA last night. Jacki and I went to see Bob Schneider at the Roxy Theatre. It was great to hear a couple of old Scabs tunes including Tarantula, and Bombananza. The Bob highlights were Round and Round, I'm Good Now, and Assknocker. The crowd was a good size, although no where near as crowded as Antone's would get in Austin.

After the show Jacki and I met him and got a couple of pictures and an autograph of his last cd. We were also able to pick up a live recording of last nights show at the show. It is by no means professionally mixed or mastered, but for a board recording it definitely captures the nights experience.
