A friend and I saw Ron White last night (it’s slow web site – I think he’s running it off a cellphone dial-up connection to a computer in his tour bus – AND it has an annoying damn pop-up).
We saw the show at the Majestic TheaterÃ‚Â in downtown San Antonio.Ã‚Â It is a beautiful theater and the recent restoration is fantastic.
Rob White is one of the stars of the “Blue Collar Comedy Tour” series of three DVDs.Ã‚Â I own them all, and they are some of the funniest things I have ever seen.Ã‚Â If you have never seen them, rent them.Ã‚Â All of them are good.
Ron White was by far my favorite of the four comics – this might have something to do with the fact he *always* has a glass of scotch in one hand, a smoke in the other, and a microphone… well, I don’t know how he holds the mic!
After the show my buddy, his wife,Ã‚Â and I played Texas Hold’ em with my two kids.Ã‚Â It was my son’s 18th birthday, and suitably he won.Ã‚Â He was short-stacked for a while, so it was a very cool come back victory (oh – and I still owe him $5.00 for that!).
Anyway, yesterday was a good day.Ã‚Â Today has been a lot slower, but fun in different ways.Ã‚Â Kids are getting ready for school tomorrow.Ã‚Â First day.Ã‚Â My daughter is a Sophomore and my son is a Senior.Ã‚Â Shit – where has the time gone?
