The trip is already so much fun. When we loaded onto the plane- It was tiny. We started joking that this was the flight "The day the laughter died"
Kevin "buddy holly" Downey, Craig "The Big Bopper" Gass and Don "Labumba" Jamieson.
When we flew over- Lisbon has 2 soccer stadiums on the opposite sides of town it reminded me of NY Mets and Yankees

A lifelong military figure in Spain, Francisco Franco rose through the ranks until the early 1930s, when he found himself, a right-wing monarchist, in the midst of a left-wing republic. He was essentially demoted, but by 1935 he had been named chief of staff of the Spanish Army, a position he used to purged the army hierarchy of left-wing figures and strengthened military institutions. When the social and economic structure of Spain, in the governing hands of the left, began to crumble,
Franco joined the growing rebel movement. He soon led an uprising against the sitting administration and took control of Spain after the Spanish Civil War (1939). From then until his 1975 death, he presided over a military dictatorship.
Ralpheal told us another great story- his uncle who was trying to talk him out of marriage said- If you are the matador and you are tossed into the air by a bull he will then leave you alone but a cow will come over to you and piss on you.. He had us rolling!!
