Oireachtas 2008

We spent the weekend at the Arizona Grand in Phoenix for the Western Region US Oireachtas.

Kendra was on a 8 hand ceili team.

Ready for her costume.

The girls practicing before their dance.

Waiting their turn with the older girls/teachers.

They may not have placed first but they were the best in our hearts.

Award night. Half of the team.

It was a nice resort.

On the way home we trusted the Garmin and headed for "The Outer Limits" restaurant in Gila Bend, Arizona. It was a classic 1960's space-age restaurant. It reminded me of the old "Tomorrowland" at Disneyland. Good food too.

We slipped back into San Diego for a California sunset.

Idleness and Sloth

Proverbs 10:4 He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.

Cleanliness is next to Godliness-thought to be an anchient Hebrew proverb.
In his 'Advancement of Learning' (1605) Francis Bacon wrote: 'Cleanness of body was ever deemed to proceed from a due reverence to God.'

Kitty Porn

Sorry-it's the best I could do this morning. Kieran spent yesterday afternoon and night throwing up again.

Luckily, this all made it into appropriate receptacles. Unlike the middle of Sunday night when I spent over an hour on clean up after that spectacular event. Remember the scene in "The Shining" when the blood came pouring out of the elevator like a flash flood, swooshing under the furniture and up the walls. Now imagine that with partially digested pasta. Yeah-life's good. Oh did I mention Paul was out of town for that?

I miss when they let me make the costumes.

It's Official
