Labor Day . . .

We woke up this morning to beautiful Fall weather, and about 50 degrees. I don’t think it finally hit 60 until later in the afternoon. Nice!

After coffee and bagels, I worked on organizing stuff in the coach for a while, and then about 12:30 Jan and I headed over to Wal-Mart to pick up some groceries and other stuff.

Getting home about 2 and getting things put away, I set up Skype on my computer and waited for Lowell to call.

About 3pm Brandi SkypeCalled us and we spent about 15 minutes watching Landon play with his toys and run around the living room.

One thing we noticed when we saw him at the reunion a few weeks ago is that he’s not bald anymore. He’s actually got a lot of hair, but since it’s kind of white-blonde, it’s hard to see in photos. His mother Brandi’s hair was the same way when she was young too.

We’re really looking forward to seeing him again when we’re back in Houston right before Thanksgiving.

Earlier in the day Brandi and Lowell emailed us these shots of Landon at a nearby park.

I think he’s saying he’s No. 1 in this photo.

And here he is having his first Tookie’s hamburger. Tookie’s was/is a famous burger place in Seabrook, TX that had been around since the early 70’s. It was heavily damaged in Hurricane Rita in 2008 and never reopened, until just a couple of weeks ago. Took’em long enough.

Brandi said no matter when you go, there’s always a wait.

A little before 6 we headed out for dinner with Nick and Terry, Al Hesselbart, and Jan and I. Al was leading us to a restaurant he likes, but when we got there it was closed for Labor Day. So after a quick conference, we ended up at our favorite local Mexican place, El Maguey, and it was as good as always.

And as usual, we sat around and talked for so long that it was almost 8:30 before we got home.


Thought for the Day:

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." – Arthur Schopenhauer

  1. Tell Nick his blog is giving problems again. I couldn’t open when you asked if anyone else was having trouble & wrote to you. I was able to the other day & caught u p on the blogs I missed. Yesterday & today no access. I can get on Bad Nick!!

  2. Joan,

    Nick is either having problems with WordPress or with his blog host. It comes and goes.

    Have you tried putting your browser into Compatibility View Mode? It seems to help some people.

    Let me know how it works.
