Lunch with Al Scalise

Al and his twin brother Tony went to the same Jr High and the first two years of High School at the same schools I did.  This year we discovered that we lived about an hour from each other.  Since I am on vacation, Al and I decided to hook up for lunch.

We had a great time talking about the "Good Ole Days".  Al told me his favorite "Ed Bear" story.  It wasn't as bad as I feared.  Seems that back in the day, I was willing to take off my shoe and sock and stick my foot up on the glass door so they could sketch my foot.  Al told the story much better than I did.  

I hope we don't wait another 30 years to hook up again.

Ed and Dad go to Las Vegas

Each December, I attend the Americas Best Value Inn conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Now that my dad is fully retired, he was able to get away and come with me.

While I was busy during most of the time we were there, we did manage to go out on the first nigth and see Penn and Teller.  They were great.
