A Very Warren Buffet Day

September 20, 2008

Journal

Lloyd’s parents are visiting for the weekend, so we had a jam-packed day.  Lloyd had an auction he wanted to check in on, then we went to Omaha.  We got there around noon and ate lunch at Spaghetti Works in the Old Market.

No, thank YOU.

Apparently, Lloyd’s Mom is a big fan of Warren Buffet, but surprisingly not for his ukulele prowess. We told her that we had a day of Warren Buffet fun planned!  We drove by the Berkshire Hathaway building, which was difficult to get to since Omaha has banned left-hand turns. (no photo – sorry) Then we drove by Warren Buffet’s house! It’s the same house he’s always lived in, and I’m sorry I didn’t bring along an invitation to ukulele night to leave in his mailbox.

Lloyd’s an excellent driver.

Then we went to Nebraska Furniture Mart, another WB store and the largest furniture store in America.  (Take that, IKEA.)  Here’s Lloyd’s Mom by the coolest table in the world.

Pebbly goodness!

Then we went to Borsheim’s, Warren’s jewelry store that’s located in the snooty mall.  We hung out in the atrium and drank coffee.  Each of my pictures had a bad shot of one of these people. I compromised by chopping everyone’s head off.

Nice eyes, everyone.

Lastly, after we made his parents sit through ukulele night, we ate at Warren’s favorite steak joint, Gorats.

We ate at night, but we drove by during the day.

Warren Buffet, if you read this, you are invited to ukulele night next month.  No financial talk will be allowed – only music!

Now, to ensure that we are the first site to pop up when you Google “Warren Buffet ukulele”:

    Do you think Warren Buffet will google “Warren Buffet ukulele” himself, or do you think he pays someone to google “Warren Buffet ukulele” all day? Because if he pays someone, I want that job.

    I saw that table when I was at the Mart last weekend. I imagined a Warren Buffet Ukulele Night around it. Didn’t eat at Gorat’s because I was sure the Warren Buffet Ukulele fan club was at the Horseshoe! (Does that help your rating?)

    I think Google is going to see through a cheap trick like this, and then come and kill all of you in the night.

    Warren Buffet ukulele day was a fun way to spend time. The market was fun as well. You should have seen the group playing. We had a good time. Glad you let us aggravate you for the weekend. Mom
