Sunday Evening Post

For the second week in a row,
this plane is flying solo.
Here are clips of the week.

J was in the D.C. area with her close friend, and on whim, went to a fortune teller to have her palm read.
I always preferred Bugs' method.

I think I'll stick with the tomato, but thanks for the offer.

Ethiopian food!
It is so hard to come by for us...
That J decided she was going to make some herself.
Even better than the real thing.

I saw this ad for the slots posted at the local mall and thought it was missing something.

That's better.
I am no gambler, but I would probably partake every so often if I knew healthy snacks were nearby.

J bonding with her new cousin.

It was no coincidence that the heavens opened up when this picture was taken.

The new Truth or Dare:
Daily Special or Cheese Curds.

Someone sent me this photo of cloaked sheep from the Delaware State Fair.
We're not sure why they are hooded up, but we made some pretty funny guesses.

I sent this photo to my wife and declared the day
"Tina Turner Tuesday".

M spent a large portion of the week in Alexandria assisting with an archeological dig.
Remnants from past lives.

M and J touched down in sunny Mami, FL!

Looks like they decided to rough it.
They are still down there so next week should be filled with great pics.

Parting shot of a sock.  We used to just mark them with an "L" and an "R", but I guess now you can get them with maps.

See you next week.

The Sunday Evening Post

I am home alone,
much like Macaulay Culkin.
Once I finish this post, I'll be busy setting up burglar traps.
The week in pics.

Good friends smuggled us actual NYC bagels.

To top it off, they also gifted us some fish.
White fish.
Some people marry into families.
I married into the tribe.

Hydrangea blooms for my wife-
weeding not included.

So cute.
The little one found the rocket ship cake pans.
Wait a minute...
That's no rocket ship!

Single car accident.
I still haven't been able to determine the cause yet. 

"Hey, kid.  Do you want to try one of my organic biscuits?"

"Dude, I was just kidding.
I can't believe you really ate it."

My Father's banana birthday cake
(NOT shaped like a rocket ship).
Happy Birthday, Papa-San!

Top right is my nephew on his first roller coaster.
He seems pretty blasé about it.

Don't be fooled by its good looks.
The word on this bird is that it stalks people and attacks them.
So poppa-ooma-mow-mow
to that!

 Pringles duck bills.

Ladies basking by the pool.

A tip bucket with Jimi Hendrix and a word bubble that says, "Scuse me while I tip this guy."
When you go the extra mile, it makes the world a much better place.

Someone has been messing with my calendar and they are using blue ink.

If your wife asks you to guess what has a crack in it, the correct answer is "your cell phone".
I answered incorrectly with "your butt".

We are planning a trip to Montreal, so our good friend who is from there hooked us up with Montreal in 96 Hours, a booklet written by him chock full of things to do and places to see.
Don't tell him, but I sent it to a publisher and signed a book deal.
"Plagiarize" is a french word, after all.

I found an old school gym!

The streets of D.C.
F#@$ your blog.
I love it.

See you next week.

Sunday Evening Post

Oooooh yeah.
(Either the beginning of a speech by Randy Macho Man or the intro to Yello's one-hit song.  You get to decide.)
The week in pics.

These young ladies finally arrived with their parents for a visit to the First State.  M kept them busy with card tricks.
If you look up smitten in the dictionary,
that face on the left is Diagram A.

Piggy back on the boardwalk.

Chickpea falafel at Dogfish Head.  

20th friend anniversary for the ladies from Rutgers.  They are like fine wines-
(I'm just joshin'!)

When a family of vegans visit, you have to bring your veggie A-game.  Here is the beginning of homemade gazpacho.

There is the final product in the foreground as A eats her "corn in a row"
(wonderful term, by the way).

E was living large in the waves up in the Northeastern parts of the U.S. of A.

J did a whole lot of swearing and is now fully engaged in her civic duty.
No lightning struck, so that is a great start.

He had a big win against Ebola Virus on Tuesday, but they were eliminated by Salmonella the following week.

The family had a blast with these two around.
There was plenty of comedic relief.

My Dad, my Brother, and I were together and talked golf and Pirates.  Mom must have approved because a giant rainbow was seen over top of the house.

A got to don a New Jersey State Trooper's cap while in the Garden State,

so we made certain it was arranged to get the same treatment here in the DE.
Now she only has 48 pics to go to complete the collection.

Some houseguests showed up that weren't as welcomed.

The proud aunt displaying her niece.

Shrooming in front of my Brother's house.  I stuck a Lego man underneath to give it some scale.

See you next week.

Can't resist.
Acoustic Devo!
