Well dear readers...that picture is a ~Teaser~! of things later in the post!
First i'd like to apologize for my lack of posting (and the posts I have done haven't been so whoop judging by the comments) my 'little projects' and Pirates of Penzance has kept me so busy I haven't had time to sit down and catch you all upon the GOOD stuff!
Now my dear readers, this is how my week goes, I do little projects on Monday, big projects on Tuesday, Wednesday is Grandma day, Thursday is a Show, Friday is a show and so is Saturday. Then Sunday I try and do something with some of the cast mates. This week a little group of us decided to load up and go to the Wichita Mountains in Lawton Oklahoma, they are about 45 min away from us and a fun day trip spot!
The other 2 people on this out of state excursion Zack and Patricia!
(I made like and Eagle Scout and got the fire going.)
(Ok so maybe I used a little help! But remember "Only You can prevent forest fires!")
She's saying "Cooking is SO much easier at Mick's!"
Never mind the fact we left all our cooking utensils at home, we made smores and gave up cooking "Dough Boys" (biscuits with ham and cheese in them) Patricia was keeping the fire going, and then I had a brilliant idea... we had the beautiful TV set in the back of the truck... why not play with it!
("It's Quite a nature Program!" says Patricia)
(Special wildlife guest Zack B. on the show!)
(We just acted like it was perfectly natural to bring a 1960's TV set to the mountains...I mean don't you?!)
After we had our fill of Smores and 'kickback Dr. Pepper & Mt Dew we packed up the picnic, loaded the television, left many on lookers scratching their heads and headed up Mount Scott!
(Even though Zack was driving, I felt like Ricky Ricardo in "Long Long trailer" heading up this giant mountian on a narrow winding road!)
What a view! This was only half way up, and it was a LONG LONG way down. When we get to the top the views were stunning as promised you could see miles and miles of Oklahoma all around! Once again I said to Zack and Patricia "Lets get the TV out for some cool pictures!"
And what a stir we caused upon this rocky mountain top! As we were unloading the television a biker couple came up to us to ask to take a picture of them by their bikes, Patricia gladly snapped the photo and then the wife asked "Whats that old TV set for?" and without missing a beat Patricia says "Its for an art project" and everyone in ear shot was turning to look at Zack, me and this old TV. Patricia very professionally walked over to me and our "creative team" went to work setting up for a "shoot" It took everything I had not to laugh when I noticed the biker wife snapping a picture of me snapping a picture of the TV! Here are some of the shots from this Artistic photo shoot upon Mount Scott...
(This is by far my favorite picture...)
Oh some of the looks we got, and to hear some of the family's and other tourist whisper about "modern art", and "important project" I told Patricia if someone else asked to say we were "Junior Life Magazine" scouts working on a piece! Haha!
(This one I'm calling "The way to TV Land")
After closing the "photo shoot" we headed down to the Famous "Meers" Restaurant at the foot of the mountain, we ordered huge hamburgers and a grilled cheese sandwich and scarfed them down before I could get a picture! Then full, happy, and a little bit sun burnt, we headed back to good Ole Texas with treasures in tow.
And that's what I did on my Sunday Vacation!
Be watching for posts about the Bar and TV restoration!
