A month ago last night, my 18 year old daughter rolled our Silverado. Yes she had her seat belt on, no she wasn't hurt, at least not until her Dad got a hold of her...
We had been discussing trading it in on a gas burner because the price of diesel is beyond ridiculous, so when we got the insurance check, we started shopping.
We ended up buying a Toyota Tundra, Limited. Very nice truck, even has a topper, which was the ultimate selling point for me :)
Then my TV died. Actually it died that same night as the roll over for the first time. We managed to get it fixed, and it died again a few days before we went to pick up Kevin. So now our $7 TV has cost us around $100, and likely to cost more, as we have so far been unable to get it back to the repairman. I'm kinda likin it... don't tell Derek.
Then we went to San Diego.
I won't share all the pictures here, it would overload blogspots databases, so here are just a few:
We eventually all went to the bleachers, after the moto-run and other interesting highlights, to watch the new Marines march onto the Parade Deck. Kevin is the third from the left here.
The graduation was beautiful! I have pictures of it but they are a poor substitute for the real thing and don't do it justice at all. Just trust me, if you ever get a chance, go to one :)
Kevin had said he wanted to spend Saturday in San Diego, so we found a place to go 'see' (spend money), called Sea Port Village, and after went to the USS Midway, and spent the rest of the day.
On the way home Monday, I realized I had caught the cold that both Joy and Jari have been trying to share with me, so I am recuperating now, hoping I'm well enough to work on Saturday, and then go fishing on Sunday. :)
