I apologize for not sending out invitations. :becky:

My wife asked me where I wanted to go for dinner on my birthday. I told her I wanted to go to Phat Matt's. She said sure. That pretty much sums it up. :heh:

Too bad Memphis is the 2nd most expensive airport for departures in the country.:tsk:

Yeah, try holding a workshop there. Everyone loved Memphis, but there sure were a lot of complaints about the cost of flights. The original plan was to fly out with the family until I realized how much that 1-hour flight cost. :mmph: It's cheaper to fly to San Francisco.

Yep, but passing through that part for mainly just one night. Got a heavy itinerary but, can't go without seeing my loyal friends and fans. So, bringing the whole family doing the Phat Matt's thing on Friday. Staying overnight in Livermore. Harassing Dave Saturday morning then back on to family fun. Will be in SF a couple days before and a couple days after doing the tourist thing. :becky:

Bummer that you are buzzing through so fast. How old are your kids? Headed to Disneyland? I've got an extra bedroom that would hold 2-3 people....

Looks like the current count of Brethren is:

Landarc
Grail
Gore (in spirit)
SirPorkalot
Martyleach
R2Egg2Q

Who else is coming?

I think we need to narrow down a time. Right now 6 p.m. works for my family but, wouldn't have a problem with 7. Us Midwestern types are used to early dinner. :becky:

As I sit here munching on my Italian meatball grinder, Charlotte wants a head count. She is wondering if spouses are coming.

I suspect that Tom's wife is the only spouse brave enough to have a meal with us farkers but I could be wrong.

Right now I think we are looking at 9 for sure, with 2 maybes and 2 half humans.

I think we should ask Matt if the two half-humans can ride the JR carousel :wacko:

Before I drive 2 hours tomorrow in Friday Bay Area rush hour traffic I'd like to verify nothing has changed and this event is still happening...

Now that is funny. Only a couple of us will get that, but it's still pretty funny.

Is Marty having a pre-bash again?

Should I leave now?

It was good to see you again Tom and a pleasure meeting your family.

Thanks to Smokejumper and Phat Matt's for feeding us all too well. Here's a pic of the b-day boy with a special peanut butter, candied bacon, and Rolo cookie:

Tom, that was a great time and I ate so much I thought I was going to blow up in my truck on the way home. Thanks so much for letting us share your 21st birthday (well sorta). Your family is great and there is only one crazy in it .
