This weekend we had a going away celebration for the man's youngest son,
who is going into Job Corps.

A good decision on his part
to help him get a good start on his adult life.
We are all very proud of him and wish him success!

The whole gang showed up, minus his mother.
Sadly, she had to work.
His brother and family came down from the P'land area.

Sister and niece and nephew who are local.

Grandma and Grandpa from a bit to the north.

We had baked potatoes with a variety of toppings,
salad and some yummy dessert pizza.
Like most family get togethers,
it got a bit loud... with one louder than the others.
The man tends to get loud when happy.
It's part of who he is.

(A wee bit crazy.)

When it was over, I fed the man and sent him to bed.
Then turned my attention to the mess that remained.
There is always a mess isn't there?

But not too bad this time.
The left over potatoes will make good o'brians
and I am glad for the salad.
I never get tired of salad.
Besides... I got to use my great new storage containers!
And nothing fell out of the Fibber McGee cupboard.

All in all, a good weekend.

How was your weekend?

Did you trip over your feet in the morning when you sprung forward?

Was your weekend quiet... or loud?


  1. Hey, good for The Man's son! I love family parties like that...a lot of work, but a lot of fun :)

  2. sounds good. is that the man's brother wearing the oregon t-shirt. i know the man always wears a raiders t-shirt.

  3. laura b.- It actually was little work. We baked potatoes and they brought the toppings and dessert.
    It was fun.

    billy pilgrim- No, that's my favorite lunatic... the man himself! He does often wear a Raider's shirt, even though he has stopped watching Raiders games. If its not a Raider's shirt, its a Duck shirt. This Oregon one has Duck colors.

    You are so observant!

  4. Judging by the size of him I hope the Job Corps can afford to feed him. And why in the hell does everyone depend on government programs these days? Why don't they just go get jobs?
