Today, we traveled from Miami OK, to Grants NM. About 800 miles. Along the way we stopped at the world's largest McDonalds, but we ate at a truck stop where we met Gabby Hayes Jr.
Today's trip takes us through the rest of New Mexico, Arizona, and California.
Our schedule for the week is as follows:
Monday - Install Desk 7 at Warner Bros.
Monday - Back stage at Drew Carey Taping with a special guest
Wednesday - VIP Tonight Show Seats

Today started out slowly. After a long nights sleep, Randy and I met up with Tom and Tony around lunch time. We ate at a very nice down town deli where Tony ate an Ostrich Burger!

When we arrived at the Warner Bros. back lot, we realized that the desk was 1/2 inch too big for the doorway. Not a problem for Warner Bros. workers who took a window out and brought the desk in, with the help of 8 men, through the office window. After installing the desk, we took a golf cart tour with Randy through the rest of the back lot where ER, Drew, Friends and other shows are filmed. We then went to studio 17 where we met Kathy Kinney (Mimi) and saw the whole cast on a closed set filming a scene for an upcoming show. We were standing behind the camera crew and director watching a scene that involved the whole cast. After the scene, Kathy came back and talked with us again and gave us an autographed picture. Sorry, we couldn't take pictures on the set.
Tomorrow (Tuesday) we plan on taking a trip up the coast. Later in the afternoon we will finish installing the desk.
Here are some leftover pictures from Monday.
Today, Tony and I went up the coast to the Sea Bee Base at Port Hueneme (Why-nee-mee). We took the Pacific Coast Highway through Malibu. We returned to Burbank later in the afternoon and then ate at Tony Romas World Famous Ribs. Yummy! In the evening we went to the Hollywood Blvd. to see the Chinese Theater and other notable landmarks.
