The Texas Rangers

#1 Son is heading on a road trip to Texas tomorrow.  His band is playing in the Spicy Evolution Music Festival. It's not as big as South By Southwest, but it's an up and coming music festival I'm sure.

I'm nervous about his trip, but happy for him too.  We took him to Target to buy some road trip supplies.  I suggested that he bring along some "wet ones," and he said he knew he wouldn't use them.  "What do you mean?  You'll be eating snacks in the car and you'll probably want to wipe off your hands every once in awhile."
"No, I won't."
I bought them anyway, because he could change his mind before tomorrow.  And I can always use an extra pack of wet ones.  To my way of thinking, everyone could.  We also bought him some cheezits, fruit gushers, and some ho hos.  He's going to share with his friends.  He's going to drive carefully, and he's going to have the time of his life.

It sounds fun. Of course they'll drive carefully.

PBS is showing a great documentary about baseball and steroids. So interesting.

Excellent road snack choices!

I just blogged about the Rangers! Quinn will have a blast, but I really don't think he will use the wet ones.

That's what t shirts are for-forget the wet ones. Although I would have done the same, and did pack some wet ones for myself.

Yikes I'm so jealous! Quinn will do just fine, now that he has wet ones.

Chicago's been very pleasant today. The flower show at Navy Pier was kind of a bust, but now we're heading out to GREEN ZEBRA for dinner.

LH said...

JC, that is AWESOME! PLEASE report back.

Got the text from #1 son. He's arrived in Austin after a night of driving.

We're heading out to the art institute this morning.

In the lobby of the Congress of the hotel. Only place I can pay for wifi. DAMN YOU CONGRESS. BUT... this is exciting. the St. Patrick's Day parade QUEENS are here in the lobby. There are 5 of them and they have on green dresses and very high high heels. They're being interviewed and photographed. The QUEENS!

Those are some messy snacks. Use the Wet Ones, Q!

Did you also photograph the Queens?

LH said...

I didn't. It would have been awkward. But their dresses were very green.

Great day walking walking walking. Art Institute in the afternoon.

Tonight we're going to a play called Assisted Living.

Assisted Living? Does that mean it's full of old geezers, like me??

I love Wet Ones. They are the handiest thing ever. I wonder if they came out of the space program like Tang and velcro did.

LH said...

Jim, Please look into that.
D, it's about a brother and sister assisting their
elderly mom. There's also a young nutty home care provider and a pregnant girlfriend. We never get to see the mom. It was a good play.

We're heading to the Field Museum to see an exhibit about Genghis Khan
