Sorry I've been light on my posts, and also light in my loafers, but Marvin's parents are in town. We have been gadding about. Which means going places with gads.
I know that made no sense. I am sleepy.
Today we schlepped Marvin's parents to Winston-Salem, so we could get tons of cigarettes and also so we could see some car show. Which, you know me. There's nothing that excites me like a car show.
There's Marvin, in his element. His parents are up there in front of him. No, not the guy with the gut action in blue. Right there, riding on Marvin's shoulders, like his Good Conscience and his Bad Conscience. Except that he is turned to the camera so they are on one shoulder, so they are both either Good or Bad.
Also too, see way up there is someone who looks naked and she has a parasol? She was one of 7 million rockabilly looking people we saw, and Marvin and I thought they all looked great and we have decided to look rockabilly from now on. I think it won't be pathetic at all for two people in their mid-forties to dye their hair jet black and get sleeved out. What do you mean?
And aren't they supposed to be hospitable in the South? Well, I guess they lose their charm when you walk against the light.
That's real rude, honey, as my mother would say.
After looking at every old car ever made in the history of time and going out and buying a cherry bikini and high-heeled Maryjanes for my rockabilly look, we went to Old Salem, which is a really stale cigarette. BAH.
Really it has old houses and stores and stuff.
Who's mature? Is it Rockabilly June, over here? And if you don't get why I am standing under this sign, be glad.
Finally, it got dark and it was time to see the fireworks. Marvin's parents are staying at a hotel that has excellent views of the works, so we brought food to the hotel and ate it outside.
Marvin drinks green tea, so he won't ever die.
Then we went up to their room and the view was excellent, Smithers.
Look at the almost-full moon, too. Probably you want a new moon on a fireworks night, though. But it looks pretty.
So that's where I've been. In case you were worried sick.
And I'm not gonna say a word. I'm just gonna link. Remember, I just have to be in the top 5 to qualify to win.
