Three Days in Texas

Howdy folks!

Here's a quick update on our trip. First, Jessica just uploaded a bunch of pictures to the facebook album so you should go check that out if you haven't already.

--In one day we drove from Phoenix to El Paso, bypassing New Mexico and its blue methamphetamine altogether. We drove about a quarter-mile from Juarez and ate some good tacos before going to bed early and waking up with roughly 400 grasshoppers on our car, an unexpected development that Jessica reacted to with the grace of Jeremy Renner in "Hurt Locker" if he had downed 6 Red Bulls in the last hour.

--We've decided that after listening to the chorus a dozen times or so, that this should be Mitt Romney's official campaign song, if it isn't already.

--We left El Paso really early and watched the sun rise over west Texas while listening to the "Friday Night Lights" theme song, finally understanding why people are romantic about Texas. After a few fairly sketchy truck stops, we drove to Abilene, Texas and ate more delicious Mexican food before seeing "The Dark Knight Rises," which was predictably awesome. 

--This morning we drove from Abilene to Arlington (outside of Dallas) and checked into our hotel--a Howard Johnson, which led to multiple "Mad Men" jokes--and had some delicious steak for lunch at this place next door: 



--All of this was in preparation for tonight's Rangers-Red Sox game. We'll be rocking our Red Sox gear and we can't wait for the game, though I'd like a word with whoever thought it would be a good idea to build an open-air baseball stadium in Texas given that it's going to be about 96 degrees at game time.

That's all for now! Tomorrow we're driving out of Texas, through Oklahoma and stopping in Springfield, Missouri. We love and miss you all!

Thomas and Jessica

    over the Internet and your site will just be another addition.
    They are simple documents with minimal cross links between the different sections therefore making the document easy

  • What this means is you won't have the ability to
    produce, and you won't necessarily see any reason of why.
