My parents are here!

I was going to blog on Lung Ying-tai's hatchet job on Chen Shui-bian that made the rounds last week -- the usual history-free, fact-free, abstract rhetorical jabbering, but I'm holding off because


Hi Mom!

My Dad

Yes! First time in all my many years here that they have come to visit. So we're doing the tourist thing. I'll blog on Lung another day....see ya round the island!

Hey Michael, I could have told that was your father (or close relative) a mile away. Enjoy the family get-together.

Thoth Harris said...

Yeah, your father looks like he's the same age as you! Very healthy looking guy! And he looks even happier than you...and you look pretty darn happy yourself, so that's saying a lot!!!

Mickey said...

This is exciting.....can't wait to hear what they think of Taiwan.


MJ Klein said...

MJ Klein said...

Michael Turton said...

Thanks, guys! Everyone has been saying we look like brothers. I am not sure how to take that... :)

Michael, we'll be up in Hsinchu in a couple of weeks -- maybe I'll persuade my Dad to go eat fried squid and sing!

I am so happy for you and your family. I hope you all enjoy a great time together is a great place. Hope the politicians are quiet during their visit.

I see where you get your great looks.

MJ Klein said...

oh man! Michael, you must convince your dad to hang out with us! Show him shots of "The Madonna of Hukou" and Heidi - that should do it! i'm sure he will dig Sauman too! we are looking forward to it!
