more wedding journey

well its the second day of the wedding journey week
this is written the week it happened but is being posted a
week later

we were awaken by a thunderstorm that hit austin
i had to go outside in it and get soaked real good
dang that felt so good

then i had to practice my toast to the bride and groom a few
times before we got ready to go to the airport
think i have it down now and it is reduced to one page
my wife she made me get rid of some of the stuff i was
going to say
yes its now reduced to a kiss toast

we made it to the airport at 430 am to catch our 600am
flight to santa barbara
however i parked the car and got pretty wet but it sure felt
good considering all the droughty dry weather we have had
wore shorts sandals and a long sleeve shirt

when i got on the plane i reached in my pocket to get my
motion sickness pill
its one of those that dissolves in your mouth but it instead
dissolved in my pocket
was a long flight to phoenix but the ginger ale and slow deep
breathing helped a lot
almost thought i was going to ruin the flight for everyone on
the plane but
made it ok

got me some new pills in phoenix got something to eat and
took a double dose and made it to santa barbara without
making a mess in the plane

the pill came in handy later after i had a glass of wine on the harbor
overlooking the santa barbara beaches
i got real sleepy and took me a long nap so that i felt recovered
when i woke up

we then went to our wet suitcase sisterinlaws beach house which
sits over a bluff overlooking the harbor and watched a sailboat
gala near sunset

sure was a beautiful sight

oh and it is so cool here-weather wise-it was in the 50s when
we got here
first thing i did was change to jeans layered clothes and shoes

eat your heart out texans and those in hot weather

today is tux day lets see if it fits
and tonight is a dinner at mollies in montesito
you can google her or google her on my blog to read about her
she is a friend of my older sons fiance soon to be my
daugherinlaw she

tomorrow a guys sports museum tour and the rehearsal dinner
maybe can shorten that toast some more

  1. wonderful - here I am in Ireland with my family nice and cool , 60 degrees

  2. Please send that nice cool weather here! It is tooo blazin hot! The kids are driving me crazy being in the house due to the hot weather.

    Anywho, enjoy it while it lasts. The hotness will be here when you get back!

    Do you see the pelicans when you're near the water? Pretty neat bird to watch.

    So sorry that you have such a tough time flying! Glad that the ginger ale works along with the other things. I guess cruises are out of the question.

    Enjoy the rest of your trip and hope you and your wife have a terrific time at your son's wedding!
