Backyard Games

I’ve had a lot of fun so far this season traveling around to exotic Games venues such as Springfield, IL…

And Rockford, IL…

The train tracks that ran straight through our Water Closet was really classy. Heh.

But soon enough we’ll practically be in our own back yard. The Milwaukee Highland Games are just around the corner and right down the street for us. I’m looking forward to sleeping in my own bed; making my own Pressed coffee; and only having to drive a half mile to get there.

I’m really looking forward to having  the Canadian Texan come to town for it,

great pic, eh?

There’s bands, and dogs, and dancers, and McBob’s. What else do you need? All here in our back yard!

So save the date, June 1st, and git’chr arse down here. It’s sure to be a blast!

Deadwood Quote of the Day

Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than be comforted, to understand, than to be understood, to love, than to be loved…and the rest I forget.
