10 June 2013


Man, what a weekend.  Was been busy from first light on Saturday until late Sunday night.  I have to go back to work just to get some rest.  Still, that's the way I prefer it - I'd rather be busy than bored.  

Hit the ground running on Saturday.  Up early, walked the dogs, short run, then off to the Farmer's Market.  Small, farmer's market at the old sugar plant where a lot of local farmers and artisan sell their stuff.  Our Golden foster group has negotiated a spot at the market just to promote our group.  Lots of happy, hot dogs.  Of course, being Goldens, they are always the center of attention.  

Came back and mowed the yard (good thing since it rained hard later in the day.  Then we threw on our country chic and headed off to the wedding.  Held on a local ranch/park down south of here.  Used to be a large ranch that was donated to the state as a park/museum/event area.  It is a working ranch with several older homes/barns and will host many corporate events.  They also have a small chapel for weddings.  Very nice affair.  

Of course, it wouldn't be a wedding without a longhorn steer.

I had a serious hankering for some good Mexican food so I hit the road to this little place I know.  Bit of a drive, but very good food, very popular, always open.  This place has been in business for many, many years (since 1941) that is open 24/7 (yes, 24 hours a day).  They are also located in a Mexican Market where you can find your ukulele or sombrero.  

This place is very popular and it seems like everyone goes there.  Of course, you never know WHO you will run into while strolling through the market.

That is a great wedding venue - but why do you need the steer??? Is that dinner or something?

And you found ShadowRun too! Glad you found each other!

I'm sure the dogs love meeting all the friendly strangers and soaking up all kinds of attention at the Farmer's market.

The ranch seems like such a fun place for a wedding.

How fun that you got to connect with ShadowRun! Can't wait to hear all about it!

Pretty sad when you have to go back to work just to rest. Makes me feel quite honored that you carved out a LOT of your day to spend a little bit of time with us. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you!

RC - it WAS a great wedding, nice outdoors theme and the rain stayed away (would have been ugly). The longhorns (there were two) were more for show than a meal. The one in the picture was called Hot Shot and is a 13 year old Longhorn and does these kinds of events/shows all the time.

Terri - the dogs loved the Farmer's market. Any chance they get to get more attention.

SR - No biggie to make the day trip over to SA. It was really fantastic to be able to meet with you and your family and break bread (or chips) with you.

How cool that you met up with ShadowRun! I was hoping you two would get together.
