New Jersey

It's almost hard to believe that I've been back from Spain over a month ago. Time flies so quickly. The trip was great but short. Two weeks wasn't enough for me. I need at least 3 weeks but that isn't going to happen any time soon. I need to find a way.

I went up to Jersey to see my friends a few weeks ago. I had a Friday off so I decided to come up for a few days. We all looked over the Spain photos and videos. It was great to re-live the experience. I am planning to go back in 2 years. This time I'll do the Southern half. I love pretty much everything about Spain--their culture, their way of life. Anyway, while Dave and Kristin were in Barcelona, they bought this liquor dispenser at a bargain price--20 Euros. So naturally, I had to see how this thing works.Dave filled it with fine Maker's Mark Whiskey and demonstrated before his brother-in-law, Chip, his friend, John and me how it works. We had some fun doing shots and playing Halo that night :)

While sitting on Dave's porch minding my own business, this little furry thing from next door wandered over. Look at those feed-me eyes. (I am a sucker for cats). It was found along with siblings in a garbage dumpster. The neighbor took 'em in and care for them. One of the kitties got killed by a car soon after.

On Saturday night, I went to my aunt's house for dinner. My friend Dave came along. My cousin, Natalie and her boyfriend, Brian were also in town. I haven't seen Nat for over 7 yrs. My second cousin, Alex (Beth and Craig's daughter) flew up from Boca Raton, Florida with Nat and Brian. I've never met her 'til that night. I think she 9 yrs old. She has been taking capoeira, Brazilian martial art, for sometime now. Dinner was great. My aunt made garden rolls and egg rolls. My buddy Dave been craving for some home made egg rolls. After dinner, we sat around and talked for a while. I showed everyone my Spain photos on the laptop. They thought I was a crazy nut for running with the bulls. I was a crazy nut, indeed.

It was a nice 3-day weekend. I am coming back up to Jersey next weekend. Gonna be another nice 3-day weekend. Dave's sister, Alicia and her husband are having a bbq party. They threw great parties. Can't wait.
