As I mentioned in my last post, we visited Phlegmmy and LawDog over the weekend. LawDog’s taco soup was awesome on Friday night and completely epic on Saturday after it had been simmering overnight. I have to admit a little concern about the crisp onion chunks in it, as raw-ish onions can tend to wreak havoc on my guts. These did not, to my utter delight. The puppehs played and played and provided hours of entertainment. We burned pinion wood. Phlegmmy drank bloody marys until she was a giggling, Ramones-slurring mess, and she never once lost her charm. Indeed, the ukeleles got passed around and strummed by all, and we were all ordered to smell the sound hole. One of her instruments has a scented body, and the essence of pina colada wafts from its fin-shaped sound hole. I noted that the ukelele is tuned to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, which led to a tangent of silliness all of its own.
I’m convinced that we ate more food dipped on chips and toast than otherwise. We had two batches of fresh-made guacamole with roasted garlic. Speaking of which, I now realize that I forgot my good, granite mortar & pestle and it was on their dish drying rack last I saw it. Well, it certainly won’t be the last time we see these lovely people. Phlegmmy produced a smoked gouda pimento spread that I simply couldn’t get enough of. We drank gallons and gallons of Topo Chico mineral water. We got to know our new .22 a little better, as I’ve already mentioned here. We discussed blogging, and blog meets. Phlegmmy gave me a box of the Clover Wonder Clips for my birthday to use with my leather work.
Before I knew it, Sunday afternoon was upon us and we still had to pick up Teen Bot and get on home. The weekend was over entirely too soon. This tells me that we’ll have to get together more often. I feel like it’s safe to say that it was a well-needed and deserved break for the lot of us. It was a lovely time of kicking back, putting our feet up, and letting off some steam. Thanks again, friends. And, if you find that bag of ghost peppers, just dispose of them however you see fit. We’re looking forward to seeing you again in October.
