|Customs are important. Balloon John Birthday Crownage accouterment made the day official.|
Mariel, who was not raised by wolves, actually brought Gary a present. Fun and practical, much like the woman herself. Doesn't every lad need a floaty with a drink holder for his pool time? Well played, Mariel!
So many people think all we do around here is party. Lay around in hammocks, eating and drinking, go to the beach, eating and drinking, hang around in town, eating and drinking. Well, it is not true.
|For example, someone at sometime industriously made this bird house. Now you know what to do with old spark plugs.|
|After gathering the proper palm fronds (yes, there are good and not good fronds for this), the lesson commenced.|
|Walt is a very 'let 'em get their hands |
|John and Lisa industriously observed|
|Walt advises the 'knee workplace' approach|
|And wa la! A three beer bird!|
|In the meantime, Walt was busy with a monster grasshopper. Oh the subtlety.|
Here, we felt and watched as the temperature dropped a bit, the wind picked up and a bank of grey clouds to the north grew darker, a good sign to close a party that was already moving toward its endgame. Rolling with Nature's prompting is a good thing. So are birthdays and friends gathering. Impromptu humans.
|It rained an estimated 23 and 1/2 drops|
Have a tolerably talented Thursday. Do something territorially untested.
