Valentine's 2013

I really shouldn't share this photo. But I will. The party invitation said, "Wear something fun & funky, pretty & pink, or red & racy." This is what I came up with (I actually rode my bike to the party!):

It definitely wasn't pretty & pink. But you be the judge -- would you call it "fun & funky" or "red & racy"?

    I vote "fun and funky" but also "elf like". My husband thought it was Lachlan.......then he put on his glasses and laughed and laughed and laughed!!!!!!

    You're right, Philip, you SHOULDN'T have shared that photo--but we're glad you did!

    Pretty in pink is DEFINITELY out, though otherwise all of the above apply: fun, funky, red, and racy.

    Though it's tempting, I won't ask where you got the bloomers--or the beads, or the hat. But the smile across your face indicates an abundance of fun. Where was the venue? I can't place it from the photo.

    And if this was YOUR interpretation of funky, fun, etc., I'd LOVE to see photos of some of your fellow attendees. What was the occasion?

    And THANKS for sharing. The words of Gilda Radner's Roseanne Roseannadanna certainly seem to apply to Ocracoke: "It's always something."

    Thanks for a smile, and have a good day.

  3. This was a Valentine's party in a private home. Glad you all enjoyed the photo.

    off topic...when traveling in Europe did any of the vehicles have a dash cam? NPR story and video of a meteorite that entered atmosphere in Russia. Many videos exist due to the many dash cams in russian cars ( video protection in defense of a crash)the many videos and a sound track in the NPR story facinating. anyway the other thing I learned many injured as they were drawn to their windows to take in the site.. then the delay as a sonic boom broke the glass of windows=== lesson. sonic booms are associated with items entering the atmosphere.

    1. No, we had no dashboard camera when we were in Europe. I didn't even know about the meteorite.
