This is one of the trips that Uncle Tom & Margie took me on with Leeanne. I remember feeling very lucky that I got to go. Margie tells a story about a restaurant that we were at and what ever it was that I had ordered must of been extra hot & spicy she said she felt so bad for me when I had tears rolling down my cheeks from the burn who knows maybe I was a little homesick to. But the thing I recall is the day I got to pick out a souvenir for my Dad along with Tom's help I was so excited when we found a fishing knife that was encased in some kind of wood so if you dropped it in the water it would float, I was very impressed with it I can still see it in my minds eye the Golden Gate Bridge painted on the case. And how I could not wait to give it to my own Dad, Uncle Tom was like a second Dad to me he was full of fun and giggles. And even more I loved it when I could make him laugh.
