Gaiety reigning

The Outgames opening ceremony is tonight at the big O. Spouse got tickets for my birthday. I guess they didn't sell enough, so they are giving them away now. Last night, we took a stroll through the village and they have closed the streets for the entire week so that the boys and girls can take over this part of town.

All the bars and restaurants have extended their properties into the street and you can sit and have a meal or a drink and peoplewatch to your heart's content. We spent a couple hours yesterday evening doing just that.

All I did was grin the whole time.

I love street closures when you're peoplewatching on a patio.
Enjoy!

Wish we could all be there.

Thanks again for a great camp trip. I forgot to try using "double speak" with "you the goo" Em said you knew how to speak this way.

Happy Birthday!

that building is way cool looking. and the fact that it is called "the big o" makes it appeal to me even more. i wonder if the girls are allowed to visit multiple times.
