Our pie has gone horribly wrong. The crust erupted up through the
custard like some teenage skin disorder. We all laughed, cried, then
Kerry got in the car to brave the crowd at CostCo. Things to be
thankful for: pie did not exlode, pie did not burn, pie was not locked
in oven on self-clean cycle (Cherie Draa style), and most of all
CostCo is open till 8pm.

Veteran's Day

Cooper has been reading about tank battles. At my parent's house he
created a tank seige out of dominos on the kitchen floor.

Thank you to all the verterans who have sacrificed so much.

Coiffure Royale

Kerry and I went to an anniversary celebration for our friend Garrett
Markenson. The event was also a fundraiser for Layne's Legacy - a
foundation that supports families of children with fatal diseases.

The event was black tie, and most people came in their best evening
clothes. We saw some trendy fashions, some tasteful fashions, and some
timeless fashions.

We met some interesting people, including someone who knows my sister
- let's all sing, "It's a Small World."

A different kind of different

I don't know about their teaching or ministry, but according to their
ad: it's a different kind of different, they have a children's
ministry, free breakfast, and casual dress. Who doesn't like a free
breakfast. While they say casual dress, Pastor Derrick and Lady Ilya
Golden's photo is anything but casual - a jacket and a tie. Perhaps
this is Dallas casual.

Twisted Root Burger Co.

After a day of meetings I went in search of dinner. My quest brought
me to a triple D, Dallas joint in the Deep Ellum district. Great
burger and fried green beans. Fun atmosphere and attitude - instead of
a number, they call out a name - they gave me Ace Ventura.
