Merry Monday

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Monday, November 12, 2007

Well, seems we were one day early for Mo's Manic Monday
ya see Mo...we posted our GRAVY recipe on Friday!

Y'all remember it HERE

Head on over to Mo's for the rest of the submissions...



Well...guess what kiddies?!?!?!?!

We finally got to go to the ZOO!

Yup Yup Yup...We went Saturday and had the most incredible time.

HEY Travis! We got to dance for the monkeys and they didn't fling anything!

It is a nice zoo...the animals are displayed in their environment and it is very clean. A good collection of animals...We especially LOVED the snake house...

Lots of laughs and smiles...

we need to develop the roll of film we shot...might have gotten some good shots...

Then Sunday a wonderful relaxing day...did a little buffet with some hot wings, slices of Parmesan Riggiano and Monterey jack, slices of salami, bruschette, pepperoni, sesame bread sticks, anchovy filets and ice cold beer.

More laughs...more smiles...and they feel good...

Overall, like the best weekend we have had in a way long time and so long overdue...

Football yesterday for our team (Giants) and for our fantasy team did not go well at all....actually the word would be 'absolutelyfrigginridiculouslyhorrible'...

BUT...our Survivor pool team won..so another step closer to the end...

DAMN...lifelogger is acting up again...looks like the server is down...which means we can't even grab code...

ARGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG...


well, still 2 hours before we post, so hopefully it will come back up...

gee...seems the GRAVY & Lasagna videos went over pretty well...thanks for all you nice compliments...was thinking if we were going to do another one what would it be and we think we would do our infamous Butterfield Stagehand Chili...let's put it this way...it starts with 10 pounds of beef brisket! LOL OH and real chili...no beans....

Well... no music...just smiles and laughs and bright blue skies...and the video...From 1991, a concert in Germany...Warren Hayes ripping up on the slide guitar and Dicky just letting that guitar burn...

'lord you know it makes me high when you turn your love my way....'



Walk along the river
Sweet lullaby
It just keeps on flowing
It don't worry 'bout where it's going


Don't fly, mister blue bird
I'm just walking down the road
Early morning sunshine
Tells me all I need to know


Chorus
You're my blue sky
You're my sunny day
Lord, you know it makes me high
When you turn your love my way
Turn your love my way, yeah


Good old Sunday morning
Bells are ringing everywhere
Goin' to Carolina

It won't be long till I'll be there
