Arrid Zone-a

First of all, thanks for all the kind words about the house. NanaK, Um. Well. Move your house here, and we will be happy to buy it. Unfortunately, MM and I are not thinking we want to move THAT far.
Daryl-Yeah, we figure that, too. We are seeing LOTS of nice houses tomorrow.
Julie- we rode through at 12:15 am last night, and I was SO thinking flaming bag of poo. MM wasn't, though. Sigh,.

Anyhow-
Arrid Zone-a. Land of hot sun, boys wearing high heels, pool stores, and MM's family. (Hi, family! ;)).
We left Friday morning at 0400, and drove a long, long long way. To Mesa, Arizona. We passed through land so dry that I swore I could see it begging for water. I wanted to know where all the skeleton bones were.....
We got there about 5:30-ish. MM's sister had been waiting for us and came out to greet us. MM has a lovely sister, btw. (Hi!) and his brother in law is great as well. As a matter of fact I should just say now, that MM really has a great, funny, enjoyable family. We had a fantastic weekend.
Mustang Girl could not get out of the car fast enough to see her Aunt. It was sweet. We settled in, chatted with the fam, and, because we could NOT convince MG to get back IN the car, MM and I went by ourselves to dinner.
Why were we in AZ. you might ask?
Big Brother of MM turned 40. (Actually, he is 40 today. Happy birthday!). But, Saturday was the big surprise party for big brother.
Saturday rolled around, and, among other things, we went to a pool store to get a new "George" for the family pool. Can I just now take a moment to point out that I have FINALLY found other people who name inanimate objects? George is the pool vacuum. MM, MG and I got kind of friendly with George on the way home. He was too big to fit in the trunk, so he rode on our laps the short distance back. We just hung out, doing various things, Saturday. Sis and Brother in law have 3 daughters. One, (We will call her "Our Future President, or, OFP for short) was on a trip to DC. She is graduating from highschool in a few short weeks. Then leaving for college. We stayed in her room. The middle one, "Gooch" (I don't know the reason for that one) was going to a prom Sat. evening. (She looked adorable. It was 1920's themed). And the youngest, "Bug", went to the Chiuahua races with her friends. Why am I telling this? So I can explain the boy in high heels. While MM, bro in law and I were out getting lunch, we walked in the door, and there was a teenage boy, staring at us in HORROR, wearing yellow shorts, white socks, and a pair of heels. While all the other kids present died of laughter. He was trying to demonstrate to the house that wearing heels was nothing to whine about, apparently. He almost broke his neck trying to get them off. It was a sight I won't forget anytime soon.
Sat. evening was the party. Big brother was very surprised, and BEYOND happy to see his brother (and niece, and, well, Me, for that matter.) We had a great time at the party. MM carefully wrapped gifts in our lunch time Baja Fresh bags, and that was much enjoyed. There was tequila, pinata's, mexican food, and an ass floating in the pool. (Yes, a blow up ass. Or donkey, you pick) MM kept standing it up, and it evenually became MM's ass in the pool, and all the jokes that went with it.
Sunday, after breakfast with the family, we drove the LONG LONG LONG road home. MM is still asleep. MG is at school, and I?
I am barely awake, typing this blog. This long blog.
Hope you all had a good weekend....

For our pool in Fresburg we had a pool sweep we called Manny , you may remember him, we name things too. It's nutty but it gives a family feel when you call something by name not what it is. As for the house, if it were that easy to move it we would have taken it to Kaoslanad after DaddyK retired. Good luck Honey, stick to what you want.( sorry about that, but I've been using endearments for you for a loooooooong time.) NanaKaos
