So it's become apparent to me that I can't maintain this blogging pace.  There's no way I can write an entry per day for months, so this is the start of the abridged version of our travel narrative...

Wednesday was a day of errands and I took no pictures.  John, Denise, Becky and I hit a few thrift stores, mailed the light bulbs home, hit Target, and went to lunch at Melodies, an awesome Mexican restaurant that John and Denise really like.  Later on we all needed to go home and pack since we were heading to my buddy Jamie's place (in Hollywood) the next day and John and Denise were flying to Baltimore to stay for the next 3 weeks.  I'm really kicking myself for not having a camera on me for this next event - we went and met Denise's daughter's family: daughter Anna, son Kevin, husband Greg and his parents Rose and Tony.  It was really great meeting them even though it was an abbreviated visit.  I really wish we had taken pictures - they are family and we really enjoyed meeting them.  I also should have taken a picture of Micheal, Denise's son.  I've taken so many pictures of scenery and none of people that I should have.

Greg (Denise's son-in-law) dropped us off at Jamie's place in Hollywood after taking John and Denise to the airport.  We met up, headed out for lunch, and then walked part of the "walk of fame" (where all the stars are in the sidewalk) on our way to see "Into the Wild" at the ArcLight theater - a somewhat fitting film considering the trip we're embarking on.

We picked up some beer and now we're here at Jamie's.  He's gone out to get some ingredients to cook us dinner and we're basically just taking it easy and mooching off of his internet access.

Sorry for the lack of pictures - more to come soon.
