The Alamo...

Yesterday was a full day.

My parents and brother drove down to spend Thanksgiving with me and Jeannie and her family.


Wednesday we celebrated Bud's birthday.



After dinner, we played Star Wars Monopoly.


I won.

Yesterday we took my parents downtown to show them the sights of San Antonio.

We first went to Jeannie's favorite restaurant, Mi Tierra.



It's such a fun, crazy place.


The Mariachi's came to our table and serenaded us.





The restaurant, of course, had a mural to Selena.

They also had a large painting of Bill Clinton.


Apparently, he once jogged while wearing a Mi Tierra t-shirt.

After lunch we went to my favorite place, The Alamo.


Boy, I love The Alamo. So much history to see.



We tried to go down to the Riverwalk, but it was closed off for the Christmas Parade.

Instead, we headed home and stopped off at Krispy Kreme.



Full day.

Razors…

How did razor's become the most valuable item at drug stores?

Is it really neccessary to lock them up?



You have to call an attendant to get them to open it up for you and then they make you pay for it immediately.

Are Walgreen's employees that distrustful of men with 5 o'clock shadows?



I think it might be easier to buy a gun than it is to buy razor refills.

Meanwhile Sudafed and Quicktrim were stocked at the end of the candy aisle.

San Antonio...

I slept 9 1/2 hours last night.

I haven't slept that long in years.

The amazing thing is, I'm still tired.

What's the best thing about being in Texas?


They have Dr. Pepper on tap.


Yeah Whataburger!

Texas...

What do you do when you've been up for 24 hours, have been on a 7 hour flight, aren't used to the time zone change and aren't used to the sudden drop in temperature?

You go to Cerality in the Dallas Fort Worth Airport.





I've only been on the mainland for 2 hours and I've already lost what little sun tan I had.

Nice to be back.

Jeannie's a little tired.

Lost photos...

The title of this post has a double meaning.

These are photos that I forgot to post and a couple of them are filming locations from the TV show Lost.

See what I did there.

First, the Lost photos.

When Jeannie, Brett and I were in Honolulu doing our Aphasia show at Laughtrack, we had a rental car and had nothing to do...so, we drove to the North Shore.

Here's the where the others live.

It's actually called Camp Erdman. At the end of two seasons ago, this is where Sawyer had his shoot out with the militia that was hired to get Ben.

This is the beach where the plane crashed in season one.


This is the beach where they lived.

A few weeks ago, Jeannie, Brett and I went to Waimea Canyon.





It was nice, peaceful and relaxing. No tears. No fights. Just beautiful, tranquil nature.
While we were there we saw a station dedicated to Captain Cook who was the first European to step foot on the islands.

Last full day in Hawaii...





8 months.

It's all coming to an end tomorrow.

Crazy.

This week we had the new cast on board and showed them some of our favorite places to go.





Oh yeah. Also, on our last day of Tennis, we got a little out of hand and broke our rackets.

It's been a long journey.

Honolulu...

Yesterday in Honolulu I taught my last class at Laughtrack Theater.

After class was over they had a Potluck dinner to say farewell to us.

There were all kinds of foods that I've never seen before.

It was great.

Jen made this crazy Timpano dish. It was featured in "Big Night" with Tony Shalhoub and Stanley Tucci.

Inside this gigantic thing is pasta, bacon, ham, meatballs, 3 cheeses, pepperoni or salami and hard boiled eggs. It's like I've died and gone to heaven and heaven's chef is and Italian chef.

Crazy.

Larissa made a dish from Saipan. Cindy made fish tacos.

Steph brought sponge cake. Somebody brought lots and lots of sushi.


And, there were Malasda's.

Man, oh man, I cannot tell you how nice it was.

I have really enjoyed teaching them every Saturday. It's just been a real joy to have something constructive to do every time we got to Honolulu.

I'm really, really going to miss everyone in the class.
