So I live in California...so what? I have relatives in Texas and Nebraska who say we should move out there...however, my wife's side of the family with their Souf Korean in-fru-ence, tells me otherwise. My Korean 13 year old nephew is visiting with us and it has been a blessing in that it has made us take some time off from our clothing store(Fashion Thug...as I call it) and get away. Last Sunday we went to L.A. and had a hoot at Universal Studios! My nephew is the kid with glasses looking lost, or wishing he was the hell away from me. I am the big guy with the mustache looking like Clark Griswold at Wally World. My son is the Korean looking kid with the Griswold cheesey smile. As an Uncle it is MY job to see to it that MY nephew is gonna have a good time whether he likes it or not...by God!!! The next day we shopped the Fashion District of L.A. for more inventory as we gear up for back to school sales. Tuesday it was a work day, then came wonderful Wednesday which found us at beautiful Monterey Bay! We did 3 hours of whale watching from a boat where we saw both blue whales and hump backs! It was totally AWESOME looong time!!! We even caught some possible Navy SEAL's on camera about to invade Monterey's Fisherman's Wharf... Later, in Monterey, I found my nephew's weak spot. KOREAN FOOD!!!
Next on the agenda are Yosemite, Kings Canyon, and Sequoia National Parks. From where we live in California's Central Valley it is all within three hours driving time or less. Just try driving to the ocean in Omaha or whale watching in Wichita Falls. Everything is bigger in Texas but do they have giant redwooods? On the plus side, in favor of Nebraska and Texas, they don't have Nancy Pelosi. If only Nebraska and Texas had rice paddies and kimchi trees...then I could move. Happy travels! Ruv you all a very long-looong time!!!JG ;)
