It was just one night...

but it was a good one. Welcome to the latest edition of Memoir Monday hosted by Travis at I Like to Fish.



Last weekend we had a great time at the very first ever Tornado Ally Round-Up (TAR).
Barb and I could only hang out with them on Friday night, but we had a great time. Well, there was crappy free wine so of course we had fun. When we got to the hotel we couldn't find anyone that looked like they were with TAR, and no one was wearing t-shirts, and we didn't know what anyone looked liked except for Travis, and he had the nerve to not be there yet (thanks a lot). There was one group that had a priest with them, I thought it could be our boys... okay not really but I didn't know! Finally we called Travis and he called Ed and told him to look for 2 naked women with cameras (thank goodness someone gave us some clothes...)
                                              
We finally found Ed and Coffeypot


 Travis, Kid Funk (my new BFF) and Travis' wifey finally decided to make an appearance

 We got our TAR shirts (which actually came in REALLY handy when it was pouring down rain and we didn't have umbrellas). Here is Barb modeling hers...


 Yeah he may look sweet, but he has got a mouth on him! Ha! John I have no idea how your wife puts up with you, but you sure are funny!

 Moseying along to the Hard Rock Cafe before the tornado...


Oh yes, Travis got a bit toasty and was up dancing to YMCA... he'd have made a great member of the Village People
 More dancing with some random chick...


Funky Cold Medina Kid Funk was dancing too... but not making quite as big a spectacle.

Ed lost a bet and had to wear a Duke hat all weekend. Not sure what that was about, but he was a good sport about it.

 Proof that we all got soaked running back to the hotel from the Hard Rock. Everyone needed more beer just to overcome it.

There he is, looking all sweet again...

And finally! Paddling all the way down I-70, here is the one and only Daffy. She's just as funny and gorgeous in real life. Oh, and she taught us how to say PENIS in sign language...

Ahhh, it was a great night, tornadoes and all. Can't wait for Round Two!


For more Memoir Monday go see Travis!

As I said to everyone else, I envy all of you. Looks like a great time. I'm meeting some blog friends from Boston for a Phils game later this month in Philly, and seeing Otin in July while we're down his way on vacation.

Sounds fabulous. The pics look great although I am not sure that Ed really was a good sport wearing that hat, he looks like he hated it!! ;0)
