Indian Summer

I can't tell you how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE this beautiful Fall weather. The days are sunny and warm and the nights are cool and crisp. I guess this is our Indian Summer. The colors around here are not as bright as in past years, maybe because we had a lot of rain this spring and summer. But I will take the colors and crisp air of Autumn for as long as I can have it.
This was a fairly busy weekend for me. Saturday I had to get my oil changed and I shopped for some new tires for my car. I don't need anything fancy, a base all season radial is all I need but you would think there was a shortage on rubber around here. I got a tip from one of the salesmen I spoke to that they are having a big tire sale in 2 weeks so I am going to put off buying anything until then and see what kind of deal I can get.
Saturday evening I went to a really fun party. When we arrived at 6pm, which was the time stated on the invitation, it was obvious they had started much earlier. Cal and I were greeted by several semi drunk friends and family members. I had a Captain and Coke placed into my hands (thank you David) and so begun the evening. There was only supposed to be an Open Bar until 8pm but Beverly, the hostess with the mostess, decided to keep the booze flowing all night and put up $1000 to make sure that's exactly what happened. She also hired a DJ to spin some tunes, and he had karaoke also for anyone wishing to participate. Around 8pm, an entire spread of chinese food was set out buffet style. There had to be around 50 people there, everyone ate and most went up for seconds, and a lot of us still brought plates of food home at the end of the evening. Originally we were only planning to stay until around 10pm but we were all having so much fun, we ended up staying until the bar closed. Of course, there was some drama. I won't mention names, but every party has to have one kind of trashy chick there, right? LOL Well we had a couple of them and they were pretty much both trying to get the attention of one guy in particular, (we will call him Ray) but one of them really put on an R rated show. She was wearing a very low cut halter top and Ray took the bait and buried his face deep into her chest on several occaissions. This of course irritated the other female, so she got Ray up on the dance floor. Which was alright except the other female had more tricks up her sleeve and decided she could be more seductive with her dance moves...needless to say, the more they tried to one up each other, the drunker Ray was getting and we all know that a really drunk guy isn't going to be of any use to any woman! LMAO
I never did see the girls leave but rumor was they left together and poor Ray was left sitting there all alone with his Budweiser.
Let me just say...I was paying very close attention to those dance moves and I think if I lose about 50 pounds, I might even be able to do them!
I never got out of bed until 9:30 Sunday morning. I wasn't hungover, which was very surprising. I made scrambled eggs, toast and coffee for breakfast and Cal and I watched the Patriots/Dolphins game in the afternoon. I did manage to drag him outside for a 20 minute walk before he parked his butt back on the couch to watch the Cowboys/Eagles game. Let me rephrase that...he watched the first half, I do believe he slept thru the second half. I did change the channel at one point to see if he was really sleeping and without opening his eyes at all he said, "Hey I was watching that." (Yeah sure you were Sleeping Beauty)
This coming weekend I am heading up to Maine to visit Rick, Blossom, Mazzy and April, Tweetie, PupPup and Gene, Cricket and anyone else who happens to show up. Maybe I can get JR to meet me for coffee in Portland on my way back home on Sunday, but I won't hold him to it. (He's bailed on me twice already) It's always great fun with the Mainiacs!
I hope you all have a good week. Hugs to you all.

It sounds like you had a good weekend. I'm glad you had fun at the party. (i'm wondering what kind of dance moves they

Have a safe trip to Maine this coming weekend and take lots of pics. :)

You still haven't told us about Cal!


Please say hi to rick, blossom, pup and gene for me!

The second half of the Cowboys/Eagles game was forgettable (at least for us Cowboy fans).

I wish we were having Indian Summer here. I think we've had about 2 days of warm temps, the rest of the time it's been cool or downright cold. Thursday we're expecting a mix of rain and SNOW!

Sounds like a great party.

I LOVE snow. But then, we don't get much of it, so, that's probably why.
