Mid vacay update

I know it's been too long since I've checked in but power relaxing takes up so much energy, I have little to check in and update.  When I got here, mom presented me with the fabulous quilt you see. Actually it's just a small part of the quilt but it's so cool how she embroidered little Georgies into the design. The colors will be perfect for our living room. We may even hang it on the wall for a while.

It was so cold when I got here. Cold for July anyway. Drizzly and mid sixties. Yuck! I didn't even pack a sweater or a jacket so I had to borrow one. It was a nice break from the hideous heat wave of death back in the East but it's July for pete's sake, it's supposed to be warm at the very least.

I had a chance to meet my dad's new dog. Actually I don't think it's a permanent member to his family (he's already got two) but it was so cute. It's kind of like a cross between a chihuahua and a daschund or maybe a beagle. So loving though. Anybody wanna adopt? Serge would kill (KILL!) me if I brought her home, but Georgie wouldn't mind I'm sure.

On Friday, I went up with the family to San Francisco. We stayed at the Intercontinental where my old friend works. We haven't seen each other in at least 5 years, but we were inseperable in high school. It was fun to reconnect over cocktails and dinner. I think it's time to ditch that shirt but it has special meaning. I found it in a $2 bin at a sidewalk sale about 5 years ago. I wish I had bought a dozen.

I have the usual pictures from San Francisco - bridges, cable cars and skylines but I thought this shot came out neat so I'm posting it. When I get home on the 20th I'll post some others I'm sure. Or perhaps they'll show up on facebook. Hard to tell with me.

Our last night in San Francisco with the family. My brother lives up there, hence our visit. We got pretty snockered the last night after Spain won the world cup. The Spanish restaurants were stupid packed but Mexican food is practically as honorable. Mom and I are such geeks in this photo, but that's why I likes it.

I'm home for another day and then mom and I are driving out to Vegas for a couple days. We're gonna see a taping of Wheel of Fortune and take in Ka, the cirque du soleil show. Spend a few bucks gambling too I'm sure. It's supposed to be something like 100 zillion degrees so we'll be sticking inside for the most part.

I'm sure there's more but I'm being called down to dinner. Oh how I love camp mommy. Don't have to lift a finger and get to eat like a king. I definitely see diet in my future. Have a great week peeps, I know I will~!

I just want to say thanks for sharing your life with us. I love all of your adventures.. How are Serge and Georgie getting along while you are at Mommy Camp. BTW your mother is beautiful.

That quilt is GORGEOUS! Your mom is a very talented lady! And she obviously adores her furry grandson as much as we do :-)!

It's too bad Serge & Georgie didn't get to go with you. Then, all three of you could enjoy dieting together -- or watching pigs fly ;-D!

Yay for Camp Mommy!
The dogs are adorable. And no, I'm not ready for a dog in my life, more's the pity.

You do power relaxing like a pro. You could be a tour guide in your next career. Very cool shot of the building.

rox said...

ACK! If your mom ever wants to make a quilt for no reason, give her my name! Gorgeous!!

I accidentally ate a pint of blueberries yesterday. I'm afraid.

GayProf said...

Love the quilt. Have fun at Campy Mommy!

LSL said...

What a beautiful quilt. That's a talented mommy there. I have one of those, too.

I was waiting for the special meaning of the shirt, too. Some early gift from Serge, or maybe you found it shopping on your first date. The $2 bin! That gave me a laugh. Verrrry special, Torn. :)

I actually used to work in that building (One Front Street) when I lived in SF...

We spent the 4th of July weekend in the L.A. area and were surprised how cool it was this time around. There was a 40ºF difference between our home in Las Vegas and Anaheim, CA. We didn't bring sweaters either. But we did enjoy the little break from the desert heat nevertheless. Even if I brought back a cold as a "souvenir." Have fun in Cali.

Love the quilt
Don't want the dog
Shirt should have been in the trash long ago.
And yes, you look on cocaine over tacos with another shirt that should have been in the trash long ago.

Miss you, the dog too

I love Serge's message.

(Translated by BabelFish:)

Daddy Serge has his ears back because it is so hot here and he is cranky. Me too.

And he does not give me enough attention and walks.

I want to give Grandmom big wet licks for putting my picture on that quilt! My tail will not stop wagging! I can not wait to roll around on the quilt to make sure it smells like me!

Forget the shirts, bring back some tacos for me! I've been a very good boy, really I have!

Come home soon. Me and Daddy Serge miss you.

P.S.: I do not need a baby sister unless I can blame everything on her.
