Adventures in Asia

by Greg & Francie

It’s a Texas X-mas!

Greg and I had a fantastic X-mas in Texas.  The first 48 hours involved some culture shock for me (since I haven’t done much US travelling aside from the east and west coasts), but after I got used to the strip malls, chain restaurants, guns, animal head wall decorations, lack of meals that include a vegetable, political incorrectness, flatness, and browness, I had a radical time!  Seriously though, all joking aside, Greg has a great family, especially the niece and nephews.  I think we all had a lot of fun.

Another spectacular surprise of this trip was that my mother was able to stop by San Antonio for an afternoon on her way to California to deliver a tank-full of orange juice.  I finally got to take a photo of her with her tanker!  Note the festive wreath decoration on the grill:

More photos, yay!  Here is the adorable resident dog Maddie who is living the good life in San Antonio:

That’s all folks.  We’re back in Seattle the 29th.  Until then… bon nuit.

  3. Browness (or brown-ness), as in, everything is brown. There is no greenery or foliage.

  4. Although Texas is Paradise, contrary to popular belief we do have seasons. It should be no surprise that in Winter, trees, shrubs, grasses etc. become dormant and turn brown until the Spring. I thought that was 5th grade science or something like that.
