4th of July, 2013

Rea asked me what I wanted for lunch today, and I suggested Thai, Mexican, or Chinese food.

Rea:   “Are you kidding me right now?”

Me:  “What?”

Rea:  “You can’t eat ethnic food on the 4th of July! That’s just not even Patriotic.”

We ended up enjoying a delicious BBQ lunch at Famous Dave’s where the slogan is, “If it walks or flies, we can BBQ it!”  I’m just guessing, but it’s probably not a very Vegan or Vegetarian friendly restaurant…


Redeeming my Patriotic-ness by singing Lee Greenwood‘s “Proud to Be an American” at the top of my lungs with Rea on our way to St. Paul, Oregon’s 4th of July Rodeo.  Tickets courtesy of Joe and Dot.  So excited!


Favorite quotes from the evening:

“It just ain’t a proper rodeo unless you get some cow dung slung on your lap.”


Rodeo Announcer: “Just look at those handsome bulls. They were born to BUCK!”

Rea: “What’d he just say?!”


Rea: “Did you see that?”

Me: “See what?”

Rea: “That Boy sure did walk by me and wipe a mess of sugar on my belly with his greeezy (greasy) elephant ear!”
