Back in The Five Oh...

In spite of various weather related situations, we arrived back in San Antonio safely and even a few minutes early. Sadly, we went through Memphis, and as wonderful as it smelled, we literally jumped off of one plane and boarded the next without being able to grab a pulled pork sammich or any other Memphis BBQ.

But, we had a great trip to visit our daughter and her husband in New Jersey, got to see lots of really cool places and enjoy numerous gut-busting meals. We will no doubt require a resumption of diet and exercise, abandoned for a full week. Okay, who am I kidding; abandoned for a while.

At the end of the day, I took close to 1,200 pictures, enjoyed a Texas Style Karaoke Night for my daughter and her friends on her 21st Birthday, went to Philadelphia, went to New York City, watched a Naked Cowboy fondle my wife and daughter in the middle of Times Square, saw the Liberty Bell (or was it a replica?) rode trains, subways, carriages, drove amongst the alleged worst drivers around (though I suspect San Antonio drivers are a lot worse) and got to see my daughter's dog Panda and her new sister Penny.

I have lots of material for those that are interested, and in the next few days hope to show more pictures and relay a few of the details.

Most importantly, now that we are home, we will try out the much discussed Mr. Cod. My wife commented tonight at how nice it was that so many of you stepped up in our absence and reported your experiences with the newest restaurant in our area. Several comments were left here but even more e-mails; and they were brutal! And by tomorrow, You'll know how I feel about it.

Oh my tummy is in pain from all the stretching it did to fit that wonderful food. I must say though before the diet on Monday we will have to get a pulled pork samwich. Memphis was so wrong to tease me like that:) .

Welcome home! I enjoyed the trip, vicariously, of course. I'm hoping you decide to open one of those wonderful restaurants you visited.

Too bad you missed Memphis, I spent a little time in that airport and had some excellent BBQ (which I prefer over the Texas type, but Rudy's still is great!).

You also probably didn't notice that gate B17 has a huge display on the Memphis Bell B-17 from WWII. I thought that was pretty cool as well.

One day I want to go back and see the city, places like Sun Studios and such. That town has some rich heritage!

Cheers! M2
