Go East Young Man

Back from vacation. It’s nice to be home in LA. We spent time in Iowa with Kari’s family and then drifted our way across I-80 towards West Michigan to be with my always-getting-bigger family. Interesting tidbits:

We played hours and hours of poker with both families. In Michigan, nine of us visited a theatre to watch “The Producers.” Forty-five minutes later, nine of us walked out. Every day was cloudy. For Christmas, I received $150, a new Go-Lite backpack, four books, a poker set, and a new drill from Menards. I finished 4th and 9th out of sixteen players at Laser Tag. We rented a compact car for the week. Instead, we got a “PT Cruiser” – our most despised car of the year. America West allows you to check in over the web twenty-four hours before a flight. That was real nice.

Cheers to America West, Ace Rental car, jobs that allow us the freedom to travel, and families willing to take a couple of drifters in for a few days.
