A funny thing on the way to the forum

Do you remember that movie? I’ve never seen it, but I remember the line, and occasionally use it. Like now, how I just did, because it made me giggle. And that wasn’t hard, because I was already in a good humor after visiting the Trusted Tours & Attractions site. They are a travel company that specializes in family vacation ideas such as trips to the San Diego zoo. This isn’t a travel agent, where you can get plane tickets and such. Rather, you use them after you already know where you are going.

They have pages set up for different cities, so you can just click the city name on the sidebar and find fun things to do in San Francisco, for instance. I used to go there several times a year when I was in the Naval Reserves. Now, it’s been probably 16 years since I have been there, but I remember walking through China Town, and eating chowder in sourdough bowls on the wharf. And the Spaghetti Factory. Nothing makes a loud restaurant louder than 25 sailors, LOL! I guess I could confess that I got a huge tattoo on my back the last time I went there. That’s not rue, though. The craziest thing I ever did there was dance with a handsome-but-much-younger-than-me fellow reservist. Oh, and by a Christmas ornament shaped like a trolley car. Guess I was boring even back in the day.

Back to the website. TT&A is running a promotion for folks who visit their website and ask for more information. If you sign up for the Trusted Travels eNewsletter and enter to win an IPOD Nano!
