My little brother's visit

My brother came for a visit.  He flew here on Thursday and flew home Saturday night.  We had a really nice visit but unfortunately he was really busy the whole time.  I wanted to get my bed hooked up to multimedia Max and my mom needed a faucet changed in her kitchen sink and her roof was leaking.

We did find a really nice place to eat.  It is called the Elephant Restaurant.  They have killer hors d'oeuvres, great food and really good smoothies.  My brother and I liked it so much we took my mom and Grandpa back the next evening and they also enjoyed it.

He also took me to Fry's electronics to get a GPS because I am really tired of getting lost all of the time.  We found one there and paid for it and left.  When I got outside I heard my brother calling me to stop and I heard people laughing.  Apparently, as we walked by a stuffed animal display Brodie picked up a stuffed elephant that show on the ground and was walking out with it, she is so cute.

We didn't get to bed hooked up because we need to exchange a couple of parts but it will get done.  It was a great weekend.

A visit with friends

A couple of friends came down for the weekend.  An online friend that I have known for six years, Char and a girl that I went to high school with, Lisa.

On Friday we went to Los Gatos and had some killer nachos at Pedro's.  After that we walked around and we came to a pet store.  They had a statue of a dog outside and when Brodie saw it she tried to sniff it's butt I and then turned around so the statue could sniff her butt.

Saturday we went to San Francisco for the day.  The weather was just perfect and we had some great seafood.  I met one of my cribbage buddies that lives there, Brad.  He is very sweet but I think he cheats at online cribbage lol, just kidding.  We had lunch and then walked around for a while.  I guess Brodie had never seen a horse before because when one came by she freaked.  She started lunging at it and barking and growling.  After about three or four came by she settled down.
