|Inside Bigfoot, at SeaTacPark.com. I arrived at SeaTacPark.com and caught a couple of hours of shut-eye before shuttling over to Sea-Tac for an early morning flight to Charlotte, via Denver...|
|The oh-so-politically-correct nutty Seattle "leaders" can't allow an offensive traditional Christmas Tree in the airport; instead they opted for this pathetic "WinterScape" display. What a joke...|
|I like the flight displays...|
|This is the best piece of art in the building...|
|Waiting for the jetway to open...|
|Denver. The new Denver airport is a sight to behold... strange in some ways, but quite a site...|
|The obligatory shot in the Charlotte airport...|
|I was happy to see the good folks at First Baptist Church and honored to sit with the Coffeys. Pastor Mark took on the character of Joseph and delivered a fine Christmas sermon...|
|Brother Brian was an fine host!|
|I drove by the old Farmwood house...|
|I stopped by Sharon Memorial Park. This would be the first Christmas without Mother, and the fourth without Father...|
|The little kitty Slash has grown into a full-sized cat...|
|Lunch with Tony and Tom Billotto, and Tom's beautiful bride Heidi...|
|I visited with Randy's family, at Randy's mother's home. This was the first Christmas for Randy without his father, who passed away on May 4, 2007...|
|I stopped by Donna Davis' home in Raintree for a visit with Donna, Bob, and their mother, Paula Davis. Paula, a beloved friend for many years, had left assisted living and was being cared for at Donna's home...|
|Patricia Marx also stopped in at Donna's. IMHO, Tricia had the prettiest picture in the 1976 Independence High School yearbook...|
|While visiting at Donna's, somebody's chair broke!|
|Carina, Bob Patterson, and Jeff Reese...||Foy Beal...||Jack Cornell on bass, Jeff Hart on a festive tele...|
|Jack, Grace on vocals...||Cathy B. and Bob...||Carina and Bob Patterson in the wee small hours of morning...|
|The next morning - downtown Raleigh... bye to Bob Patterson, Carina, and Jeff Reese...|
|On the way back to Charlotte I stopped in Winston-Salem and had lunch with Christie...|
|My storage unit in Charlotte...|
|Lunch with Randy at Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House, at Piedmont Town Center, near SouthPark...|
|Nancy (back in Seattle) asked me to bring her a Hooters of Charlotte shirt, so I forced myself to stop in to a local branch...|
|I finished off the afternoon with Pete at Caribou Coffee...|
|Well before dawn, while everyone else in the house slept, I made ready to head to the Charlotte airport. Just prior to leaving, I sat at the table and spent some quite moments thinking about how much I how much I miss my Mother and Father, and how much I love my sister and her family, and Brother Brian...|
|Over the Rocky Mountains...|
|I've flown over this spot before. Observe the markings on the ground... what is this?|
|Approaching Las Vegas...|
|You step off the jet in Las Vegas and you're in a casino...|
With Nancy and Little Man... Bellevue Square Mall and in Bigfoot. Nancy is wearing her new Hooters shirt, from Hooters in Charlotte...
