Well, Vacation's about over for me so I thought I would write a little recap of my time off the last two weeks with my wonderful wife Bunny.
Ewok Village - First, we went to Muir Woods, a peaceful place filled with tall trees that have been around for ages. It was a cool, pleasant walk through nature and the place where scenes of Return of the Jedi was filmed. My wife did the Ewok horn call a couple of times. I kept thinking of the "Nub Nub" song at the end of the original Jedi. Looks like the real title might be Yub Nub .
Do you know the way to San Jose? - We had wanted to see San Jose's Japantown for a long time. The website made it look like an exciting place to be. Instead what we found was about a three block ghost town with some shops and very little of interest. The song that goes with this? Everybody Knows This is Nowhere .
Wall E - We had a good time at the movies watching Pixar's Wall-E. At the end, we were surprised to hear the voice of Peter Gabriel singing a song from the soundtrack called Down to Earth .
My Mom's Birthday - My mom had a birthday which we celebrated by having a BBQ at my parents house. It was a fun time and we played a challenging game of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. After playing the board game, I can almost understand why something like this would happen. Almost.
Emergency Toe Service - A quick trip to Lake Berryessa was a lot of fun. We went swimming for the day in the lake, which was a little dried up and had algae but still had enough water to play in. We both got a little burned. As Van Halen would say, I'm On Fire!
I'll take Park Place and Boardwalk - Last Friday, we went to Santa Cruz to visit the Boardwalk. We had a great time riding roller coasters and water rides as well as watching a performance by Eddie Money. It was Two Tickets To Paradise .
To close this one out, I'll use 38 Special's "Back To Paradise". Thanks for a great vacation, love you Bunny!
