Trip to Oakland/SF/Pleasanton/San Jose

Here are the pictures I took with my Sprint PCS Vision phone on my trip:


Here we see Frank and Janet in their new kitchen.


Here we see Frank and Janet with Bugs Bunny.


Here is an attempt at taking a picture of me and Lisa.


A little different when I’m holding a dog treat instead of trying to hold a dog.

Unusual things I saw at the airports:

In St. Louis:
1) The person taking my order at Burger King was smiling, as was the person mopping the floor.  If you can keep a good attitude with that job, someone should hire you to do customer service.
2) A rather large woman jogging to catch her airplane.  It was a strange site.  I’m not sure why.
3) Four F-15 taking off.  Everyone in the terminal watched with awe as the planes went nearly ballistic.
In Phoenix
4) The Salsa at the Blue Burrito Grill is spicy-hot but otherwise dull and boring.  The Guacamole sucked.
5) I saw a man missing a thumb.  Did not ask him how it happened.

Leaving Oakland
6) I noticed a sign on the ramps to the airplanes that said “No thoroughfare – No vehicles may pass under…”  I then saw, not 1, but 3 vehicles of different types drive directly under the signs.

Conversation with Allison before bed

  • Me: I have to go out of town for a couple of days for work.
  • Alli: I don’t want you to go.  I want you to stay here with me forever.
  • Me: I HAVE to go, its my job.
  • Alli: What if you told your boss that I didn’t want you to go?
  • Me: He would still make me go.  I have to teach people some things that only I know.
  • Alli: Are you going to tell them not to run with sharp things?
  • Alli: And not to drive too fast?
  • Alli: And …
  • Me: Something like that.
  • Alli: I want to go with you.
  • Me: I want you to go with me, but I don’t have anyone to watch you while I’m working.
  • Alli: We could bring Mommy too.
  • Me: Then what would we do with Danielle and Justin.
  • Alli: We could bring them too.
  • Me: That would cost a lot of money, and they have school.
  • Alli: I don’t want you to go.  You are going to be gone for a long time.
  • Me: Its only for a couple of days.
  • Alli: I’m going to miss you and I’m going to cry.  Like when you went to Utah.
  • Me: [[she remembered I went to Utah??? That was this summer]]  Try not to cry.  I will miss you too.
  • Alli: I’ll miss you more.
  • Alli: What if I do cry?
  • Me: That’s ok, but try not to.

Again with the restroom…

Walking into the restroom earlier today, I heard someone talking.  The good stall was taken, so I assume that the person was in there talking on his cell phone.  I of course took the stall next to him, pre-Flushed, and not surprisingly, his phone conversation immediately ended.

That pretty much sums it up.

Bush, Blair, Evil
Bush and Blair are Evil and must be defeated.

    Did you see the video of the statue of Bush getting torn down much like that of Saddam’s statue? It as very interesting, as is this article by cnn. It’s interesting that the whole world it seems hates Bush, yet we are oblivious to it.

    what’s sure is that everybody don’t like them too much in europe (except in UK). But I’m pretty sure it’s because Bush have the power we don’t have.
