It must not mean what I think it means

Saw this sign today in China Town. I wonder what they sell.

Chick-fil-a again

Yum. This time it was all the Myers and the Ficketts. Even Jennifer decided to get a regular - she usually gets grilled. Why bother?

They even serve Southern-style sweet tea.

After lunch we spent the afternoon at the sea, enjoying the sun and sand.

Someone didn't

Well they may have paused as the sign scraped the underside of their car, but I don't think they stopped. This was close to our house so I'm surprized that we didn't hear it.

The city was out within hours of this picture and had it replaced.

How far would you drive for free food?

Ben Myers and I went to Oxnard this morning (100 miles round trip) for a free chicken on a biscuit breakfast. Chick-fil-a was giving away free items to anyone in a cow mask/costume for Cow Appreciation Day. Don't ask how much gas it takes for free food. This is my second time to Chick-fil-a in four days. I like the drive.

Best chicken biscuit in town -- or several towns.

Ben celebrates Cow Appreciation Day in style.

Bill moos for breakfast

So the question is: Will I go back for dinner?

Long Distance Dinner

We decided to escape the heat, so we drove to the sea. Since we were so close we had dinner at the Chick-fil-a in Oxnard. What's a little gas for the perfect chicken sandwich?

Family Time

We stopped by my parent's house for lunch and dessert. While we were there my sister's kids also stopped by. While they were here we called my sister and chatted with her on speakerphone. She loved the time. It was great that we were all able to be together. If you look closely you can see my sister - she's they grey phone.

Rodeo Drive

Saturday we took Elisabeth on a shopping tour of LA. First we had brunch at Swingers, then shopping at The Grove - where she was shocked by the model at A&F. The we went to a store that sells clothing that was used in movies. Then we went to Rodeo Drive where she found a shirt she liked enough to buy. We saw some interesting (weird) people on Rodeo Drive. We went on a short drive through Beverly Hills, then off to Porto's for dinner. We finished the day with a private tour of a desert botanical garden in Valencia. A fun day.

4th of July

Elisabeth (from Norway) experiences the 4th with a croud of Americans at Bridgeport Park. Great food, now the wait for the fireworks.
