ID Please

Well I made it back safe and sound, I have to say I had a great time this past weekend. As I get older I find the thought of my birthday scarier than Halloween. As per Patrick's request, I will include the list I was given since both Dave's and Patrick's lists made me laugh. Dave's actual list...

Friday evening: Very cute cowboy outfit.

Saturday: Hiking boots, jeans, sweat shirt, long-johns, old jacket, hat. Extra clothes in case.

Saturday evening: Nice shirt, dress pants, tie, nice jacket, dress shoes.

Saturday night: No clothes required, just a towel and Kleenex.

Okay I really noticed the last one too. Friday we went to my sister's party and Dave mingled really well with everyone, he had a great time (I'm so glad). My sister really likes Dave and that is a bonus for me. We went as cowboys and laughed when we got there because 2 out of every three people were dressed as a cowboy. Some people joked that they did not receive the 'cowboy memo'. For my U.S readers there was a woman dressed as Palin and she did such a good job, even with some of her actions. While the dinner goes on we also hand out candy to the kids who come to the door. I like the little ones between two and five years old, they are so wide eyed, not sure whether the desire for candy out weighs the desire to run! For a Friday evening there were not many children and my sister was a little disappointed. After the dinner and conversation, Dave and I went out dancing at a gay bar with some of the gay women who were at the party. I was asked for my ID!!! :) I said "are you kidding me" and Dave laughed and said to the woman at the door "he is turning *BLANK* tomorrow"! She looked at me again and said "okay you can go ahead, sorry it is just that your glasses hide all the wrinkles around your eyes" ouch.. b.. bb... bitch! Around one in the morning after we had shaken our little buns enough, we decided to leave and realized it was good that we came early, there was a line up around the block to get in. Plus Dave had plans for me on Saturday and said we needed to leave by 10:30 am. I have pictures of what we were up to but I just have not down loaded them yet, I'll post them tomorrow and talk about some of the stuff we did. Now I have to see what you people have been up to!

I am a bit confused - I assume it was a Halloween party, so why go as a cowboy?

Hey welcome to my blog Stephen. Now I am the one that is confused, over here Halloween is about dressing up as anything you want to be. From a cowboy to a ketchup bottle (yes there was one last year, ketchup bottle that is) a person can be a nun or monster, what ever comes to mind, or is there some sort of inside joke here that is going right over the top of my head?

"...okay you can go ahead, sorry it is just that your glasses hide all the wrinkles around your eyes." OUCH is right. I would have used my bare hand against her ragged, crows feet-eyed face. Glad that you guys had a great time that night and that Dave intermingled well!

LOL - let that be a lesson to you, cowboy... never scoff at being carded! It may be your last.

It happened to me (yeah, me!) some years ago at a club in Ft. Lauderdale. I suspect that the guy was just trying to make my night. I played along and showed him my ID. "I get that all the time," I said (wink, wink). But like you I was in love at the time...

Happy Birthday! I enjoy it when I get carded nowadays.

I'm guessing you won't have any pictures from Saturday night.

Well, I'm thrilled to hear you had such a great birthday...even if (or perhaps especially because) you were turning ___. : )

I think Patrick's list is slightly more interesting...but Kleenex?
