Default #1 Son is in Houston......................

#1 Son is in Houston, where he'll participate in today's Marathon.

Called last night to let me know that our all-time favorite 1970's fast food joint survives out there.......
that would be Jack in the Box .................
He called to report on a Bacon Milkshake that's on their menu.

Bacon Milkshake????

Good luck to your son in the marathon LT. He must not have had to many of those bacon milkshakes to be participating.

Leno has been making jokes all week about the Jack in the Box Bacon Milkshake. I love bacon but bacon milkshakes sound downright GROSS.

He ate his usual Pre-Race Dinner at a Subway across the street........
He then went to "Jack's" and bought one, called me, and took a sip or two and reviewed it to me over the phone..........
His take was, "Definitely a strong Maple-Bacon flavor, but also a strong "imitation Bacon" message getting through......."

Looks like they will have trouble getting the race in; rain won't stop it, nor will high winds, but lightning will.


His goal is to run a Marathon in each of the fifty;

Texas will be number 23, I think.

Your son looks like a good man, and sounds as if he is close with you, Lucky.

And you sound very proud of him! :-)
