Weekend pics

Yeah, it's Tuesday night and I'm posting pictures from the weekend. Deal, kids.

Saturday night, we ordered teriyaki. The menu's a little tattered and stained ... it's well-used:

We drove around running some errands on Sunday ... the weather's crazy here lately. We headed south of the city, and ran into hail, downpours of rain, and snow. Luckily, in a band of decent (but cold) weather, we came across Saltwater State Park, between Federal Way and Des Moines (which, in Washington, is pronounced "Deh Moynz" ... yeah, I know, strange to Iowans like Scott and Andrew):

Clam season is closed. No lesbians out today. *I did NOT just say that*:

Watching the rain south of us:

The path along the waterfront:

Some signs need subtitles (get it?):

Dogs playing on the beach:

Clouds over the bluff:

The little cafe:

Scott pointing out where we are:

Scott near the Cool Bridge:

We stopped by a nursery on our way back home (I know - US?? At a nursery?!?!?!?). I want this arbor with the benches:

Next door to the nursery was an antique store. You know "teh gays" and antique stores. I fell in love with this chandelier:

We took some videos, too - but those will have to come later. I'm tired, and dinner has to be made sometime tonight.

For those of you who have read this far - I know it's been a (long) while since I've actually WRITTEN a post. A thoughtful, meaningful Matterdays post. So ... give me some ideas. What should I post about? Leave a one-word comment and we'll see what comes of it.

You boys know how to have fun!

Interesting chandelier. My mother has the same one in her breakfast room. As I recall, my father bought it sometime around 1975. Does that make it an antique? Or just a "lovely period piece?"

Chandelier is very cool.
Every take-out menu I have is pretty tattered and torn.

You can keep the chandelier; I want the arbor with the benches!

And I love pics. If I can't have a life of my own, I'll just be a voyeur of yours! LOL!

Love you, cuz!

Okay, I was kidding - I would never have a chandelier like that! I just had to take a picture of it ...

What IS with 'you people' and your antiques?? We're 'blessed' to have to drive by about 5 stores on our way home every day..and I hear it EVERY time... "Ooo Andrew....we could go antiquing...!" and EVERY time....I speed up and say "Nope, they're closed." (and they really aren't.)

Andrew, you have no soul.
