So, to catch you up on what's going on... The Jupiter Sunrise concert didn't go quite as planned, but that turned out to be a good thing. The power started freaking out while the first band was playing, but we still had a few lights, so JS invited everyone up onto the stage (since there were only twenty-some people who turned out for the show) and they played an acoustic set for us. It was actually a lot more fun than a regular concert, but unfortunately they only got to play three songs before the power company shut off the power completely (a transformer had exploded in the alley). But, since the show was cut short, the band invited everyone out to eat, so we spent a couple hours at Perkins talking mostly to Chris, the drummer, who sat at our table. Good times were had by all. That was Thursday. Friday was spent catching up on sleep in the morning and driving through the afternoon/evening, and when we arrived at Gary & Linda's, some infinitely excellent calzones were waiting for us.Today's first highlight was a lovely afternoon tea, in celebration of the 55th anniversary of Netty's grandparents. I don't usually call things lovely, but, I mean, look at the picture. It was clearly lovely. Following the tea, we changed gears (ha!) and went to the races. Figure 8's, Battle Busses, and a big 'ol turkey leg made for a fun evening. No pics or video of that, unfortunately, because the wankstas don't allow recording devices. However, while we were waiting to meet everyone beforehand, Shannon, Michelle, and I ducked into Furniture Row to get out of the heat, and guess what we found... Robots! A guy named Rod Ford had these awesome sculptures on display, and I really want one. No, I want twelve. Now, for your viewing pleasure, is a video of said robots, set to some rockin' music (points to anyone who can name that tune). Enjoy! Also, if you'd like to buy one of them for that special robot-loving blogger in your life, I can give you Senor Ford's contact info.
(P.S.: Change "today" to "yesterday"...I didn't get this posted last night like I'd planned.)
