What A Great Weekend!

A great big 'Thank You' goes out to Reggie Girl down in GA; it arrived just in time! I needed a lift laying here on this smelly old couch, about to drown in clutter. Some of mine, a little more of hubby's, since all I could do was 'hop hop hop' to the beat of my own getting around...

I love it, and it will greet my house guest this Wednesday. You will have to come over to my 'Food ~ Wine ~ Fun!' site on Friday, or Saturday. Mellisa Gaffney will be hosting over there, and she has some fun planned. Showing this off will be part of that fun!

'How many people does it take to read the instructions on putting that tent up. That was fun to watch!'

Hubby and I hobbled on down to south Jersey this weekend for my 'Cultural Art Expression' Open Mic in Parvin State Park. Here are some highlights...oh and I did cook, but photos of the food stopped after the cooking started. I cannot multi-task outside of my zone to well...

'My foot was wrapped in a 'Glad it did not get wet' bag!

The funny part of the day was Vito, and hubby coming to announce the canoe tipped over, not once, but twice! Oh, and the fish got away. I heard enough fish stories growing up from my father, and had my own, but this was too much!

'My station for the day, chief cook and bottle washer...!'

~ Menu ~

Sauteed Asparagus Quinoa
Chili-Cheese Dip, and Blue Corn Chips
Vegetarian Hot Dogs, and a few stray regular ones
Grilled Stuffed Portobello Mushroom Burgers, Danish Blue

'Down South there is an Open Mic at Expressit! Coffee House, Haddenfield Twshp. Barry and Adrienne run it every other Friday, so they came and joined us...'

'Sorento, ???, and her husband, Vito @ our fireside Open Mic. This guy came out of now where, and I was the only one that knew he did not belong to our group. A camp stragler that came to join us, because we are a fun group!'

'Tim, oh, had that lovely cigar going, we read our poetry, and then we both were thinking the same thing!'

'Howie sings 'Creed'...and very well I might add...'

Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Oh, Im bein followed by a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
Leapin and hoppin on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow

And if I ever lose my hands, lose my plough, lose my land,
Oh if I ever lose my hands, oh if.... I wont have to work no more.
And if I ever lose my eyes, if my colours all run dry,
Yes if I ever lose my eyes, oh if.... I wont have to cry no more.

And if I ever lose my legs, I wont moan, and I wont beg,
Yes if I ever lose my legs, oh if.... I wont have to walk no more.
And if I ever lose my mouth, all my teeth, north and south,
Yes if I ever lose my mouth, oh if.... I wont have to talk...

Did it take long to find me? I asked the faithful light.
Did it take long to find me? and are you gonna stay the night?

Wally and Ruth stopped by last night. Last time we had a camp fire was at their cottage. When weekends develop into wonderfulness, they are never long enough. Be inspired.
