Weekend of Nonstop Fun: Saturday

Yes, my friends, it IS possible for a hootenanny to take place in one's backyard. In our case, our back yard is a parking lot and our dear in-house likker store thought it a fine place to celebrate their Grand Re-Uncorking. All hail to the beloved wine haven/beer carnival/think tank/playhouse we know as the Cork Und Bottle! The 25 years of wonderfulness were celebrated in traditional Midwest style with beer (Central Waters Weiss)! food! AND music! All of that included a child's-portion side of face-painting, puppet theater, and hula-hooping, all fueled by a half barrel of root beer. Sa-weeet.

Greg & Dave get high & lonesome.

Weekend of Nonstop Fun: Friday

Miss Heather says, "Howdy!"

Yes, there really are pillow-strewn, powder blue banquettes on which to lounge while enjoying good company (see above) and sensible imbibing.

How about some shuffleboard whilst watching the Cartoon Channel?

Papa M reflects upon his luscious, shaggy locks.

Finally, I have a few moments to document our weekend of nonstop fun, which began with our dear Miss Baker's Inheritance Sale. The sad news is that we fogot to take photos, but it is certainly worthy of mention nonetheless. Miss Baker attaches emotional weight and meaning to inanimate objects (a notion to which Rockmama is no stranger) and therefore has accumulated piles of STUFF. In a liberating show of disipline, Miss Baker decided to have a mighty yard sale and sold her beloved stuff on the condition that each new owner must hear the story of the object being purchased. I became the very fortunate owner of a pair of red cowgirl boots with gold stitching that had been worn once by Miss Baker as a part of a Hee Haw girl Halloween costume.

As documented in the images above, we celebrated my acquisition by going to Rosebud's favorite bar to visit Miss Heather and have a cool drink(including the world's best kiddie cocktail for our good-looking daughter). This lounge is now one of my favorite relaxing joints!

Aqua Maid

I am a bit behind in our summer story, as Marine Life has been nonstop fun for several weeks now. To tide you over until I can post photos of The Weekend of Nonstop Fun (last weekend), please enjoy Aqua Maid Rosebud at Grandma Ninna's luxury pool.

Librarian's Special Day

I've said it before and I'll say it again: damn, I'm glad she was born.

This photo was taken by Haus Frau (who is very patient with me) during Slumber Party '08 weekend.
