Art

Since youíre in San Jose letís get together Iím sure thereís lots to talk about and Iíll even buy you and your wife breakfast at IHOP (or somewhere else) but youíll have to buy me a burger if and when I make it to Santa Rosa and yes Iíll want fries with that.

If you're interested, Send me a PM with where I can contact you.

Good to hear you are eating well there in Calif Art. Don't feel bad about the weather, it was 53 when I woke up this morning and 67 just now when we got home from going out to dinner with friends. I can do without the 53 but the 67 is really enjoyable for me.

IHOP sounds good! Will that be a single or double whopper with your fries?
I'll PM you when I get all of my personal business done and have more time to kill.
We'll be here at least a couple of months or so as long my hay fever allergies does not act up since everything is in full bloom.

Yes we did Chuck on Friday the 13th of all days to do it on and it only took 15 minutes since not too many people were there waiting in line with scheduled appointments and or walk-ins, since they were at half staff due to President's Day the following Monday for a long weekend for government employees, which I think was the holiday.
We were 45 minutes early for our appointment, but the lady took us in early since no one else was around.
Pretty huge government building for an Army Reserve Command Headquarters.

Art,

I got mine there also when I was home.  Operation was pretty efficent, this fell under my area of personnel when I was active duty.  Sure has changed since 1988.  I was also impressed by the size of the building.

Jimmy Dean what?  Jimmy Dean Sausage?  If Johnsonville will do you, they have links at S&R.  I think patties too.  In fact, I have seen Johnsonville in quite a few places.  But yeah, I wouldn't mind Jimmy Dean.  Maybe Art can ice up a jumbo balikbayan box, load it and send it to us.
Whatever floats your boat.

Just checking in again for an update. It's still cold here in San Jose, California.
It was 48 deg F. early this morning Tuesday, Feb 24! Oh my aching knee joints!
No, it's not from eating too many Dunguness crabs or rib-eye steaks, which are
both $6.99 a lb! Today for dinner we are having pork spare rib adobo at $2.99 a lb.
My father-in-law cooks up a killer of a pork spare rib adobo!  :)

The only Veal Parmesan French cuisine I ever had came in a microwavable Swanson's frozen TV dinner tray in a box. :o
I will though have that big T-bone steak Lee mentioned before returning to the Philippines! ;)
