And so...we are back in America.

Our long traveling went smoothly. But we're feeling a little more European than American right now with all the streets feeling too wide, the cars too big, the city too sprawling, and the east Texas air too humid. We're going to have to do some adjusting! So let's make this an All-American post today! And what's more American than Chuck Norris!?

Are you familiar with Chuck Norris' 1986 cartoon, Chuck Norris Karate Kommando? It is horribly made, kind of strange, and hilarious.

This is one of my favorite clips from the few episodes that got made. I find it strangely poignant.

Is Chuck trying to tell us something about American culture? Discuss.

LOL! I love it!

I thought of you and Karl today when I was at Costco. It is SO BIG and SO OVERWHELMING. If I was just getting coming back from living abroad, it would seem so shocking to me.

P.S. I didn't know there was a Chuck Norris cartoon. I'll have to find it for my kids, they'd probably get a big kick out of it.

I still can't cope with how big shopping carts are! They're like monsters.

I have exactly that same reaction when I've returned to America from Europe. The streets don't seem so wide now that I've been back a while, but I'm stymied by the lack of recycling and the bigger is always better attitude.
