It's been a few days...

Hi! It's been a few days, so this will be a long post! We've been very busy having lots of fun fun fun!!

Alison flew in on Thursday, and Scott arrived in his super cool VW a few hours later.

Alison seemed to have brought the nice weather with her, from where who knows, but we're not complaining! It's been the nicest weather we've had so far.

To Alison's and my delight the second floor ladies room is haunted! Here we are in the haunted bathroom stall.

This room is in the haunted area, and some people feel a cold draft when you open this door to nowhere. We didn't feel anything.

George really liked these snake skin boots, worn by Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones in the late 60's. His new work boots?

My second song was Dynamite Hack's cover of Eazy E's "Boys in the Hood". The small crowd was very amused by a white chick attempting some gangsta rap... and I was GOOD!

This morning was also the Wounded Warrior Ride. A group of wounded veterans rode their bikes all the way from Miami. They rolled into Key West around 11:30, and it was a very inspiring reception.
