Littlest Lessard - Epilogue

The Littlest Lessard is over, done, kaput!

I've paid my debt for getting badly beaten as Marc and Michele arrived in Dallas at about 4:30pm CST on Friday. Cassie and I were there to meet them and off we were. As a sidebar, it was Marc's third flight...THIRD FLIGHT IN HIS LIFE. His only other flying was a round trip to California on vacation when he was seventeen. That's over twenty five years ago!!! Needless to say, Michele had finger marks in her arm where he was squeezing too hard.

Upon collecting their bags, we returned home to pick up Dylan and Marissa who elected to spend the evening with their aunt and uncle that talk funny. After a quick tour of the house, we had a nice meal at Dickey's Barbeque Pit. We were then off to the Mesquite Championship Rodeo to see the relatives of all the meat we had just eaten. The rodeo was actually not very good that evening, but we had front row seats and had dirt in our pockets. We had a great time, even when Marc came out of the gift shop with a ginormous set of longhorns for me (my mistake for mentioning to him that I had always wanted a set).

We returned home and visited and played Bananagrams for several hours.

Saturday was a bit more sedate. After eating the many crepes that Michele made (hadn't had crepes in a VERY LONG time). We shopped and we shopped. We went to Bass Pro, Boot Town, Chick-Fil-A, Half Price Books, and Macy's. After a little wait, we were off to Pappasito's. Everyone got the DelMar, although Marc ruined his by getting some weird shrimp variant. The meal was OUTSTANDING. I think Marc and Michele enjoyed it as it lived up to its hype.

After dinner, another run to a bookstore, and Cold Stone Creamery we were done. I was literally done. Hadn't slept much all weekend, and I was ready for bed. So, after opening some birthday presents, watching Cassie's video and looing at pictures we went to bed.

We all flew out together. Marc and Michele to NY and me to DC.

Thanks, Phil - Jill - Michele. Much appreciated. If I have to be alone and away from family and friends, at least I heard cool stories and had a nice dinner. (See my next post for details).

Thanks, again.

And a serious thankyou for a great weekend, brother. I particularly loved the rodeo, and Pappasito's was everything you promised, and more. And I am officially a redneck, because I could get used to Bass Pro Shops. Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou. (And I continued to lose weight- another 2.2 lbs. even after that meal!)

Glad you had a good time, I had a good time showing you my home of eight plus years...Next time, bring the family and stay longer. We'll go back to Bass Pro, pick up that .45 semi and go shooting for sure.

Congratulations on the continued weight loss. How you did it after the gastric monstrousity of a weekend you had, I'll never know.
