The turnout at Casa de Amoroso this year was huge. Tons of people there, and everyone just kept bringing these awesomely tasting dishes and meats and deserts, and so I was literally forced to eat a little bit of everything that was there - like, gun to my head forced to eat! ha ha ha And with the huge mass of fireworks assembled in one place and gallons of all sorts of adult beverages flowing like water all day and night, well, it all just added up to one fucking fantastic event, that's for sure. From what I can remember of it I had a pretty good time. I ran into Joe Ramone there, who I haven't seen since 1998 or something like that. It's great running into old friends like that because you just sort of pick right up where you left off and just start acting like a couple of drunken idiots having fun, just like we did when our bodies were a bit thinner and the hair on our heads a bit thicker. ;-) Yeah, always fun catching up, like I did with Hugh, aka Jenny's Dad, who is quite the charecter and a really cool guy to boot. Haven't seen him in a while and he extended his always open offer to come see him in Idaho or wherever he lives for some hunting and fishing and shit like that. I may take him up on it some day, who knows? ;-) Yeah, the Holiday celebration was a boisterous time. I tried to take pictures of everything going on but I was way too under the influence to do anything competently, but I tried, and I think I snapped over 500 photos of the night, and maybe 25 of them are useable? hahaha Oh who fucking cares! Sometimes it's not about the photographic evidence of the event, but more like the memory of the feeling you get when you're in the midst of it, surrounded by Friends and Family and feeling the Love all around, and that's something a picture can never capture. Nope.
Hope you had a great 4th of July, and that all of your limbs and appendages are all intact. :-)
