Honeymoon:Day 9 –Panama Beach –Finally A Beach!

Our last day on the road was spent on a very deserted beach in Florida.  A just perfect ending to a wonderful trip!


Honeymoon:Day 8 –St. Petersburg Florida –Dali!

The next day we drove two hours south so my bride could see the Dali Museum.  If you have a chance to see it I would seriously recommend it,I wasn’t a fan before the visit,but I’m a fan now!  Here’s the bride with a mustache she bought for a friend!


Honeymoon:Day 7 –Magic Kingdom

Disney had put up most of the Christmas decorations while we were there.


Honeymoon:Day 6 –Magic Kingdom


Honeymoon:Day 5 –Hollywood Disney

I really liked this park.  It was all the best parts of Hollywood without the homelessness and driving.  Good BBQ as well.  Tower of Terror was not as terrifying as I had hoped.  I’ve had rougher rides on freight elevators.  The Aerosmith Rock N Roll Coaster was pretty good,but it need to have a a drug rehab section.


Honeymoon:Day 4 –Animal Kingdom and Epcot

Animal Kingdom was pretty freaking cool.  This roller coaster being a extreme highpoint!


Later that night we went to EPCOT.


Honeymoon:Day 3 –The Promised Land

We reach the promised land!


Honeymoon:Day 1 –New Orleans

We made off the next day for New Orleans!  An excellent trip for the first day.  Not that far and we got to go enjoy dinner and have some fun before the long drive to Orlando.

Wedding Day!

We had a perfectly wonderful wedding at the River Oaks Theatre here in Houston.  Thank you to everyone that came out and to Tucker and Vanessa for their special roles in the wedding.  My bride,Amber looked like a little movie star as she walked down the isle.  The wedding was perfect and sweet.

Pink iPod

This morning,I found an old pink iPod.

I put it into the Bose Sound System and selected random.  Some of the loveliest music I’ve heard in a long time began to play,classic jazz and blues.  Her music.   A languid version of Smoke Gets In Your Eyes was the first song.  I have such warmhearted memories of the San Francisco apartment and that music playing through our house.  I took a moment to breath and soak it in. It’s bitter sweet music.  It reminds me of better times when we had the world by the tail.  I can still remember our dances in the living room and later in our kitchen in our new home here in Texas.  Life moves on,but at that moment that music transported me back to happier days.
