Hey You Guuuuuuuys!!

My bro-in-law, Steven, just flew into town last night. He is on a month long coast-to-coast adventure, mostly traveling by train and interviewing all kinds of interesting people. He's a whiz with video equipment and recently graduated with a degree in broadcasting. I've really been enjoying hearing about his adventures so far.

One of the places that he visited was Astoria, Oregon. Now, for you Goonie fans out there, you know what that means!! I hadn't seen Goonies since I was a kid, until I got married 11 years ago. Now I can't tell you how many times I've seen it--it's my husband's favorite and has become one of my favorites, too. Vince and Steven can pretty much quote it line for line. It is a classic. And I just had to show you what Steven brought me from his trip there:
Isn't it cute?!! What a great bro-in-law!

I love that...and isn't it funny how that wreath on the wall is perfectly centered around your head! Believe it or not, I've actually never heard of the Goonies!

You have a halo!

That's funny about the wreath--I didn't realize it would look like a halo:)
And, Betsy, I can't believe you haven't heard of the Goonies!! I bet your oldest son has.

You look like an angel with that wreath behind your head. It even glows! Great shirt, and even better, great gift! Straight from the heart!

Tim LOVES the Goonies and has shown it to our kids about a thousand times! We are from Oregon, a few hours from Astoria and the last time we were there we sought out the Goonie's house! Tim was very pleased.

Love the halo!
