Today is a special day… I remember 26 years ago, the day after 8/8 Father’s day we left Taiwan and was on my first flight across the Pacific to America. I remember flying a 747 over to LAX and then because we our flight during the layover, the airline put us in a hotel in LAX. I remember watching American cartoons for the first time in the hotel. Even though I did not understand a word, but I loved it. I remember flying to Houston from LAX. During the flight I remember seeing the Southwest landscape and thought it looked just like a model terrain. I remember flying into Lafayette and reaching my new home in Louisiana. So many things have changed in 26 years. I remember not knowing how to speak a word of English, I remember leaving Lafayette, I remember graduating high school, I remember graduating college, getting my first real job, leaving Alabama, I remember becoming an American, moving from Houston to Ephrata, moving to Seattle, and of course meeting my lovely wife.
Oh … so many memories….
