And the air hangs heavy like a dulling wine

After Effie got back from Hannah Montana The Movie the other night we all headed out to the Fair for some late night greasy West Coast Amusements action. What a hoot!

At 11 pm, Ferg was the only kid his age left at the Fair so the ride dude let him go around and around on this thing for a full 5 minutes. He looks positively thrilled! Check out stick boy...

Sleep on and dream of love

If the extendo famille ever questions my love for them they need only be reminded that Wednesday night I was in their collective bosom rather than being at my scheduled appointment ogling Morrissey's in Albuquerque. Er, something like that. Kevin sold my ticket for beers.

Sunny and warm here though we haven't left the house much! Ferg's preferred location is in front of the wii tv - lots of good-time gaming is gettin' done:

Nightly ritual:

Yorkshire pudding prep (and Gini modeling her new bangs):


Reading "Where The Wild Things Are". Tried to get Grannie excited about the trailer for the cool new Spike Jonze movie but she was having none of it and went on about "in her day" and "we used our imagination" and "walked five miles backwards in the snow barefoot" and whatnot. Silly Grannie.
