Our assignment to Italy was canceled, so we’ll be hanging around the Gulf Coast for a while longer. Although we’re disappointed that we won’t be living in the birthplace of the Renaissance, modern science, and the opera, we’re happy to remain near family and friends.
As you know, I sold my Mustang in preparation for the move, and yes, I miss that little car, but it gave me the opportunity to get into something a little more practical: A Toyota Tundra SR5–nice truck with a powerful iForce V8 (271 hp w/ 313 ft-lbs of torque…ugh, ugh, ugh). It’s even got room to carry a couple of kids…
So, Friday night was date night, and Cindy got to take her first ride (ever) in a pick-up truck. Yeah…I was pretty surprised to find that out myself. We went to the movies and saw “The Proposal” with Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. It was a total “chick-flick”, but very funny!! Sandra Bullock’s had some work, though, on her lips (and elsewhere, more than likely), and that’s too bad. I guess she’s watches reruns of herself in “The Net” and wishes she could still look that young. Well, here’s some insight for anyone who thinks they need plastic surgery to stay young:
If it’s obvious that you’ve had work done, it only highlights the fact that you’re getting older!
Anyway, Cindy and I had a good time, and the boys enjoyed their time with Hannah.
