After the call, the girls left to get pedicures and Tyson and I went to the gun range to try out my Christmas present.

He is doing well and in his most recent letter he commented on a conversation by a couple of elders comparing the MTC to prison. One Elder replied that the difference with prison is that you get to watch TV. Darren seems to be enjoying his prison sentence so far.

As we pulled curbside, Elder Novakovich was met by three smiling missionaries who welcomed him and helped him unload his bags. We were able to give our final hugs, give our Elder some letters that had been prepared and say goodbye. One of the smiling missionaries noticed that Tyson was in the back seat crying and asked if he wanted to give Darren a hug. Tyson hadn't shown any emotion this whole week, but as we unloaded the car, he cryed and cryed. He loves his big brother and will miss him.

Darren met with the stake president and the papers were completed last Sunday. The waiting for his call now begins. In the meantime, hello Mexico. Hopefully for Darren, he won't come home to hello Boise, Idaho.
We flew in to Long Beach on Saturday morning and spent the day with Patricia, Herman, Eric, Joanie and John. We spent the afternoon playing basketball, barbecuing and getting caught up.
While I'm generally a Delta loyalist due to their frequent flier program, I must say that the Jet Blue flight was more comfortable and the service was much better.

The trip in from the airport into downtown San Francisco is a relatively short 20 minute cab ride. It can seem extremely long if the Pakistani cab driver hasn't taken a shower since arriving in the USA 25 years ago. It was so bad I had to open the window and ask where he kept the air sickness bags. Seriously, there should be minimum hygiene laws for driving a cab.

Ryan Howard from the Phillies signed a 5 year $125 mm contract extension earlier in the day and celebrated it by going 0-4. You'd expect at least a single from a guy whose now making $150,000 per game.
