Family Firsts

Merced, California: Every family has those momentous occasions. Baby's first step. First Day of School.

First In-N-Out Burger.

This morning, Dave's cousin from New York State came out to have a tour of theMagna Peregrinus. Susan and her family cooed over our little home on wheels and we fed apples to the goats being pastured near the campground as "lawn mowers".

Is this a good time to tell you I am hauling DT to San Francisco next week so he can have a goat taco?

Probably not.

Susan, Timmy, Tim & Samantha

Susan and Tim have two children, Timothy Jr., and Samantha. They are a great family and we are having a wonderful time!

For those of you (that is most of you) who cannot get to an In-N-Out Burger within the next fifteen minutes, I apologize. Not only do I apologize (and am really sorry, feel bad and wish it weren't so), I completely understand as there isn't an In-N-Out Burger in the entire state of Oregon. In-N-Out is a once-a-year indulgence for us.

Can a person go to hell for posting a photo of an In-N-Out burger on a website? I am thinking coveting, sloth, false idols and a couple other commandments are being broken.

There were eleven of us for lunch at the Merced In-N-Out. We basically took-over an entire section of the restaurant, taught the New Yorkers the "secret menu" at In-N-Out and proceeded to get our chow on.

Just pretend this is a poster and not a photo of a juicy burger "animal style" from In-N-Out.

Susan didn't have to pretend. Here it is - Cousin Susan's very first bite of an In-N-Out burger. We are putting this photo in her baby book, next to a lock of her hair and her kindergarten report card.

Until my next update, I remain, your "I'm never eating again" correspondent.

RV Park:  
Castle Air Museum Family Camp (in Atwater, California). The only game in town. We always stay here. It actually used to a a parking lot - but the Air Museum added eight 50-amp full-hookup campsites. It floods during a rainstorm. No bath house. No wifi. We love it here. Dogs allowed off-leash. Very casual. Quiet.
