Day 805 - Aug 12, 2010

Today we went out to dinner for both Mary's birthday and Johnny's birthday. We went to a restaurant called "The Magic Time Machine". It was such a cool place - the atmosphere was so totally awesome - but unfortunately Kevin was just miserable. can see...just look at his face in this picture:

(L to R - me, Chris, Breezy, Moe, Mary, Johnny and Kevin. Excuse the horrible scan too, my good scanner is in FL and this one was made for documents, not photos)

After just a short while, Kev decided he wanted to go home so Johnny offered to take him and they went out, jumped in Johnny's car and away they went. It was kinda nice seeing Kevin drive off with a friend, almost like the old days, but I would have preferred for him to stay and eat with us.

But, the rest of us stayed and Woody and Indiana Jones sang to Mary for her birthday. It was so funny! Here is a pic of Mary blowing out her candles.

We really had a good time as the conversation just flowed effortlessly. The characters were fun and rowdy and the decor really was intriguing. The food wasn't the best, but we were able to look past that as we all drank our Harry Potter bubbling drinks.

I just hope that we get back to the point where Kevin can enjoy himself. He rarely does anymore.

So as you all know, tomorrow Moe and I are going to Galveston for the weekend. I am really excited and I am so happy to report that Kevin is cool with it finally. He was upset because he wants to go away somewhere too - he wants to have fun - so I told him that once he is feeling better after his surgery and after detox we will go and do just that. He's just not ready, although he doesn't realize it.

So anyway, after much deliberation, I have decided to not write the blog this weekend. I hope everyone does something fun and I will catch y'all Monday night.

HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME THIS WEEKEND!!!!! I'm so glad that you're able to do this with your best bud - to say that the trip is much needed, well deserved, and perhaps even medicinal is an enormous UNDERSTATEMENT. Have a blast, you need it! Looking forward to hearing all about it on Monday night! God bless you Leslie, Kevin, Breezy, Chris, Moe ... everyone!
