I recently took a trip to Texas to a concert where my wife was singing. While we were there I became reacquainted with a fantastic regional burger chain, Whataburger.

Man I love this place. I well remember the old drive-in buildings from when I was a kid visiting my Dad in Ft. Worth.

Things Whataburger has going for it:
  1. Shakes - these things are real shakes, not that congealed crap that McD's serves
  2. fries - you can actually get a true small order of fries, not a giant bucket.
  3. cheese - they use real cheese, another first
  4. jalapenos - you can get jalapenos on anything.
If you ever find yourself in Texas and get a craving for a decent burger, give this place a try.

Disneyland Armadillo Band Membership Card 1990

Man I loved these guys. It was the early 1990s and these 4 psychotics in band uniforms adorned with armadillo heads and claws would wander around the park making wisecracks and generally being dorks. Fantastic!

I particularly remember one day we were walking by Golden Horseshoe and the guys showed up. At the same time, four horseshoe girls in full regalia were headed back towards the Horseshoe, and the head armadillo said "Hey, look, Horseshoe girls!! Four of them, four of us", then much winking and nudging ensued, much to the total embarrassment of said horseshoe girls. Ah, memories.

Anyway, this is the card these bozos would hand out as they wandered through the park. I cherish mine.
