Bye Bye Tom. Hello Cirque

Since Tom is leaving today, it's the perfect time to have a farewell breakfast at the Galaxy Diner. It's almost a tradition.

Laurie drove Tom to the airport to fly the first leg of his trip to Melbourne, Australia. He flies first to Houston, waits 3.5 hours, then flies to LA, waits another 3.5 hours, then off to Australia - a sixteen hour flight. We will all miss him - he's such an integral part of the family.

The remaining six of us went off to Ft. Lauderdale to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts to see the Cirque Holidaze Dreams show. It was such a colorful, spectacular performance, filled with impossible physical prowess and flexibility. By the end of the show, the splits were just ho-hum! It seemed as though everyone on stage could do the splits. The two child performers were very impressive - I especially enjoyed the little girl in pink who must be double jointed in every possible joint.
