We had a visit to a familiar place to celebrate Tom’s birthday. The Bombay Bicycle Club in San Antonio is where Tom and I had our first date. The decor looks the same as I remember. Those were fun days. These are fun days. The only change is that we don’t hide things from each other for fun….we have enough trouble remembering where we left things…..
It all started with Fast Freddie, a stuffed tortoise that my brother BV gave me. When Christopher was here the dashboard in our car was empty. I am aware that children can declare their parents crazy and have them locked up…..For now, to fill our long commute into town, we have detailed conversations with a pig,a cat, two raccoons, a tortoise and a two legged super dog. There is a live dog in the backseat, but she is usually sleeping.
His Highness (the one in the photo whose head is the highest) is none other than King Tuneap from Floresville Peanut Festival 2000. Such a stellar year, it was. The gentleman to his left was a Duke in this prestigious event in Wilson County. On the far left of the photo is a Duke from the 2010 Peanut Festival. They were kind enough to pose with Tom and let me snap a photo, but requested that we not mention any names….
This is Tom and my sister Sue. I would have to bitch slap her for touching his face if she was not family. We adopted each other. She is the smartest, cutest, funniest person I have ever met. (Besides my original family)This is Sue with her three human children and husband. They have three doggie children that we love like our own…..There are many photos of those guys in past entries. Hopefully they will come to Aunt Dana’s house again soon, to be spoiled in the manner that they are used to when they are at home with Sue and Gene.
Everyone should be so lucky to live in a place that feels like paradise. It was love at first sight when we found this place…. I never imagined living anywhere else. This is one of my favorite views of our house…..I know, it looks like a barn. That was the plan. This is the barn. The difference is that it is cleaner because there are no animals in there.Model horses are a lot less messy.Some of our critters could give a flip about the view.This is why I never choose to eat lengua…..nunca jamas!!!!Mostly just here for the treats!
I am catching up on some posts…..Not sure why it has taken so long….must have lost my head. Anyway, here are a few photos from our Halloween/GMa Birthday Party in October 2012We never know who will make an appearance at this annual event! It can be really scary at times!!!Lucky for us, the Tincredibles are always super heroes!They quickly subdued the unsubs even before other invited quests arrived.Two body guards were needed for added safety during this high profile event.Some photos are still being examined for evidence of paranormal activity and will be added at a later date…..
