For his birthday present from me, he received two tickets to the Dodgers vs. Texas Rangers exhibition game in March. He loves the L.A. Dodgers! Because Bob is crazy about the Dodgers, I had to spill the beans about his birthday present earlier than his birthday. He was online getting ready to buy tickets, so I had to tell him a few days early. At least I know I gave him something he really wanted.
Both of us worked a half day on Christmas Eve Day. Randall joined us after work and we drove the Escape Pod to League City, Texas (between Houston and Galveston). The 5th wheel and kitties stayed in San Antonio (just one night). We stayed in a Candlewood Suites Inn and had a very nice room. We got one suite for $76 (because it was booked a week early) and one for $81 (senior rate) plus tax.
Christmas Eve, we went to dinner at Landry's in Galveston to celebrate Bob's birthday, and his brother and sister-in-law's anniversary. I doubt we would return to Landry's. We had five in our party. They brought us a big bowl half-filled with salad to share between the five of us and were told we could not have another bowl of salad. Seriously? We were practically counting the lettuce leaves to divide it up evenly. They did load us up with bread, however. Two of the orders were wrong, which they fixed pretty quickly.

After dinner, Randall, Bob and I drove around Galveston to try to show Randall the sights, but it was pretty dark! On Christmas Day we would be back in Galveston for brunch, so we decided to show him around then.
We headed back to Candlewood Suites.
