Packing Light Weighs Us Down

Hi Everyone!

Penny and I just arrived back from California,
and we had quite an adventure! We had a laundry
list of things to do while we were in the Bay Area,
but we squeezed in some fun, and stopped in
Casa De Fruta on our way back to Vegas!

As many times as Penny and I have traveled back and
forth from Vegas to California, we had never stopped
in this town. We finally did, and it was magical.
There were peacocks crossing the street, and a
carousel that made us feel like we were in
The Lost Boys, minus the boardwalk,
ocean and vampires.

And then there was this photo opportunity.

We also had a little chat with a highway patrolman
on our way back, who handed us a nice piece of paper
stating we disobeyed the speed limit.

To get out of the ticket, I really wanted to turn to
the policeman and say, "Officer I have an astronaut
diaper on. Have you ever worn one? It gives a
rash, and I am in a hurry to take it off."

As entertaining as that would have been for me,
I probably would have found myself in handcuffs.
No one ever lets me have any fun.

Penny is unwinding, and has been sleeping
all day! She has missed her drive-thru Starbucks.
We hope you had a sexy Monday!

What a busy adventure you had! That nasty policeman! I am sure you would have set him straight but I know you were in a hurry to get back to Vegas and the drive thru starbucks, so I don't blame you for just taking the ticket and carrying on.

Looks like you hads the fun trip, Penny! That officer must not have seen how sexy you are otherwise he would not have given your Mom a ticket!

Silly po-po.

Hi Penny,
Pretty pictures! Yang wishes she was there to chase that big bird, that would be so much fun. Tell your mom you need extra whipped cream to make up for what you missed.

Grins and Kisses,

I am sure if you told him youwere on an emergency mission to get Penny her whippy cream, you could have slid out of it!
