So, I decided to just deal with pictures from the vacation before commenting on all the bullshit news. (tongue in cheek). I have posted the vacay pics at flickr site if anyone want to check out the fuller figure club at the beach! Hey, at this point in my life, I couldn't care less - I just wanted to get away.
I had to take a picture in the car as we were hading to OC, as we had 2 cell phones, an iPod, a radar detector and stuff all on the dash - and I commented to thedaughter that our dash alone was worth a pretty penny.
Not even ten minutes after we checked into our room, I got a phone call - it was a young man's voice and all he said was "get out of the room, the cops are on their way!" WTF...we hadn't even burned one yet! Paranoia sets in, as I am super tired. I complained to the manager at the front desk that I was not impressed with getting prank calls immediately upon arriving in our room. They apologized and said it wouldn't happen again - like how are they going stop something like that? I was hoping this was not going to be a portent of things to come. (It wasn't.)
This is my ultimate favorite picture...thegrandson flying his kite. I put it together and he just took off and did an amazing job of getting it to soar! When he first got the kite up in the air, I was impressed...then I realized the tail was still balled up - yet he got it very high. He did even better once we unraveled the tail and let it fly!
There wasn't one single decent sunrise to film though. Every morning looked like it was going to storm (yet only stormed on 3 occasions), but by noon all was clear.
I'm going to have stop here, as I have some things to tend to, but I will add more later. Have a great day friends...enjoy the weather! (Hope it is good for all.)
