December 15, 2006: Once again, the end of another year approaches and I wonder, where the hell did it go!?!?! It's been a busy start to the last month of 2006 so let's keep you up to date on what's been going on!

First week of the month I was traveling for work. I spent the week in Dallas, TX and in Denver, CO. On Friday, I got home, rested up for a few hours and then went to SFO to pick up Travis "Shoebox" Nelson. It was SO GOOD to see him! It had been about 4 or 5 years since our last visit and during that time, he's been in the USAF traveling the world and experiencing some crazy adventures. When all is said and done, all I can say is that it's good to have him home safe and sound :)

The first night of his visit we hung out here in SF. We grabbed some food and margaritas with my friends Ian and Ulton and then went back to my place where we spent the rest of the night drinking and catching up. We hit the sack around 2:00 AM. Around 10:00 AM we grabbed some coffee and breakfast burritos and then took a 5 hour drive down South to West Lake Village (just North of LA) where we met up with Adam "Skinny Daug" Arnold. We spend the afternoon chillin' and hanging out and started it all with a really good late lunch at our favorite place just up the street from Adam and Meredith's place. It was a lot of fun having the three of us all together as it had been a while since I'd seen Adam and a dogs age since all three of us were together. That evening, we had a nice get together at our fried Doug's place and then crashed out sometime after midnight. The next morning, we grabbed some breakfast and hung out for a bit before we bid our farewells and trekked back to SF. The 5 hour drive back and forth made for some good quality time to talk and catch up and I enjoyed every bit of it.

On Monday afternoon we were able to go out into SF and see a couple of the sights. LOL here are a couple of shots of Box:

Yeah.... the Golden Gate Bride and a big FU! LOL :D

And around 9:30 that night, I sadly dropped him off at the airport. It was a short but really good visit and it was so damn good to be able to see my bro' again. Great to have him home!!!

On Wednesday, Justin and I went XMas tree shopping. LOL not to be outdone by anyone, I think we got one of the biggest trees on the lot :)

Justin and Clarice with the tree!

and Justin was in charge of decorating the tree so of course, it came out looking fabulous :)

OK, more update are a coming. I just wanted to get SOMETHING up here for December :) Hehehe, stay tuned!
