When We Last Left Our Story.... on The Project was just being completed. Its been most enjoyable. I'm spending every free minute being out there. That pretty much explains why I havent posted in a while. Well, that and the fact that we're working wicked crazy hours.

Focus is now turned to The Wedding Details. Offspring #2 and the Fiancee take the big walk in 6 weeks. Invites are out and returns are coming back in. I'm not one to get all nervous and jerky about stuff, but I'm getting a little hinky here because everything is going way too smoothly. The way this summer, and I use the term 'summer' with full sarcasm, is going, odds are, its going to rain.....and considering that the affair is a PICNIC, in the OUTDOORS...perhaps that will be our crisis. I keep telling myself that the weather is the one thing I can't control, so I'm not going to stress about it. I also keep telling myself that Mother Nature will be a dear and bless us with a nice day....She's just getting the wet stuff out of the way for that weekend. Yeah...thats it.

My Friend Lynn Sent Me This

This video was made in the Antwerp , Belgium
Central (Train) Station on March 23, 2009, with
no warning to the passengers passing through
\the station.

At 8:00 am a recording of Julie Andrews singing
'Do, Re, Mi' begins to play on the public address

As the bemused passengers watch in
\amazement, some 200 dancers begin to appear
from the crowd and station entrances.They
created this amazing stunt with just two

And Then There Was Light

Well....sort of. I mean there's light, and it looks incredible in person, but I couldnt capture it like I wanted to on the camera.

Photos just dont do it justice

By Jove, I Think We've Done It!

The Irish Snug

What is a Snug? The history of the "snug" began in Ireland in the late 19th century. It was typically a small, very private room that had a frosted glass window, set above head height, accessing the bar. You paid a higher price for your beer in the Snug, but nobody could see you. It was not only the well off visitors who would use these rooms. The snug was for patrons who preferred not to be seen in the public bar. Ladies would often enjoy a private drink in the snug in a time when it was frowned upon for ladies to be in a pub. The local police officer would nip in for a quiet pint, the parish priest for his evening whiskey, and lovers would use the snug for their clandestine visits.

Well....I just got done putting a couple of coats of poly on the bar. And let me tell you, it's friggin awesome looking.

Here's a couple of shots......

I'm loving this bar. I believe we'll call it The Snug.

All we need the electric hooked up and Kevin is coming over early next week to do that. Oh, and I need to dress up the place with all the little chachki and stuff I've been collecting. Jewelry, if you will.

You'd Think....

...that since I've been off all week....(we're week every year at 4th of July) that I'd have tons of time to post. But no....I've been off doing stuff. Mostly wedding stuff. I believe I have everything checked off my list, so now I'm good with that.

Every morning, I've been waking up a little later. Except for Monday of course, when The Spouse woke me up at the usual time, forgetting that I didnt have to get up. This morning, I rolled over and it was 9:45. I cant remember the last time I slept that late. AND, its rained pretty much every day this week. Yeah.

And, I havent had a Pepsi since Friday. Its just too easy having that fountain gun so close to me at work. My name is Peggy and I am a Pepsi-holic. Nothing beats an ice cold one in a can. Yes, it must be in a can...none of that 2 litre or plastic bottle stuff for me. And it was the absolute bestest when it came in glass bottles. Remember those? What I wouldn't give.... Now that I'm rambling about it, I'm probably gonna have to buy some when I head to the grocery this afternoon.

But I can't leave now....Doug is here installing the bar on the porch. Film at 11.
