Well, it mostly was. And about the music. But the before- and after-parties with our merry houseguests were awesome too . . .
|I mean, really. What a happy bunch of reprobates. Unfortunately, Mistah's vestigial arm is not long enough to get us all in the photo.|
|I never go anywhere without a trusty fire extinguisher on my shoulder. And The Dowd is never seen without fishie platters growing out of his ears.|
|I love hold-out-the-camera-to-take-photos photos because you never know what you're going to get -- like say half of Mistah's face and both our rigs. And all of me.|
|Aw. My little big sister.|
Anyway. Back to the Hygienic. To view the art on Sunday we had to *get* to the art on Sunday. So let's all hop in the Subie and head downtown, shall we? I'll drive.
|Heading down Thames . . .|
|Heading down Harris . . .|
|In all my years walking downtown I have never seen two shoppers hanging out in front of Burr's Marina. Hygienic Miracle.|
|Heading down Pequot* . . .|
|And heading up Bank . . .|
|I love Bank Street.|
|Oh look! The Hygienic! And our handsome greeter!|
[Insert looking at the art show here].
And then after . . .
|Golden Street. I love Golden Street, too.|
|The view from Ernie's*.|
|Here we are again, with a flash this time. We are the mutual |
And then, sadly, it was time for MB and MD to hit the highway . . .
|Here's MB telling MD to focus. As per. Here's Mark's reaction. As per.|
|And it's time for Mistah and me to head home, too . . .|
Care to hop in the Subie and join us for the return trip?
|Goodbye Bank Street.|
|Goodbye Hygienic caryatids.|
You know the movie Rainman? When Dustin-Hoffman-as-Raymond-Babbitt takes photos out the window of the car, and they're featured in the closing credits? Well, ol' Rainman's got nuthin' on our own Mistah Schleckah:
|Oooh, a house!|
|A roadhouse -- the best *kind* of house.|
|Even though I *am* driving by New London't tiniest beach, it's a beach with no waves. Which is why I really love this photo.|
|Heading up Thames . . .|
|. . . annnd . . . home.|
That was such fun! Thanks so much for joining us -- we loved having you along.
