Last weekend, I wanted to do something fun and different, so I went to watch The Beaux Arts Trio.
I ended up going alone, but I had a wonderful time. See the little guy in the middle..he is the pianist. He was very entertaining, as he would thrash his head toward the violinist (the guy on the right ~ red headed guy) throughout the performance. The violinist could not see him doing this. The violinist and the cellist were playing their intruments in front on either side of the pianist. He also made large mouth gestures throughout, as if he were singing in an operatic fashion, but no words ever came out. The violinist moved about as he played, the stronger the music, the more he moved. The cellist was very poised. He looked as if he played with his eyes closed quite a bit. There were times when he was playing so hard, his feet lifted from the floor. It was a wonderful show, they had two encores.
Saturday of this weekend that just passed, I went to Art on the Rocks at the Art Museum. It was great fun. We first sat with a very interesting man and talked for over an hour. He is the second person that said I resemble the Mona Lisa. Saurkraut once wrote this in one of her posts. There was an endless variety of delicious hors d'oeuvres. I had wine...let's see, a couple glasses of Merlot, Cabernet, Shiraz, Chardonnay and then I tried a Cosmopolitan martini. There were a couple of DJs inside close to the food. They played what I think is called Dance music. I did recognize one song. Hollaback Girl by Gwen Stefani, but it was synthesized. There were other activities outside. There was a band, Alejandro Escovedo, which drew a big crowd. I also created some of my own primitive art.
It was fun...but that is what you get when you mix art with alcohol. Plus, I didn't spend a whole lot of time working on it. It was fairly chilly outside (44 degrees fahrenheit/6.66 degrees celsius) and there was still the art to see, which was amazing. I didn't get the chance to really look at all of the art as long as I had wanted to, so I will definitely be going back to do that. The night was so much fun, I wish I could do it all over again soon. The night was wonderful in lieu of the fact we had a little trouble finding our vehicle in the parking deck at the end of the night. I didn't feel bad about that, because we were not the only ones. ;)
So, did any of you do something fun this past weekend, or have any plans for something fun?
Have a great Monday!

That tall handsome dude in the middle is my cousin, obviously a distant cousin...(4th)
His name is "Texas Jack" Omohundro.
The two fellows with him are Wild Bill Hickok on the left and Buffalo Bill Cody on the right.
"Buffalo Bill’s show business career began on December 17, 1872 in Chicago; he was age twenty-six. "The Scouts of the Prairie" was a drama created by dime novelist Ned Buntline, who appeared in it with Cody and another well-known scout, "Texas Jack" Omohundro. The show was a success, despite one critic’s characterization of Cody as "a good-looking fellow, tall and straight as an arrow, but ridiculous as an actor." Other critics noted Cody’s manner of charming the audience and the realism he brought to his performance. Actor or not, Buffalo Bill was a showman. "
"The following season Cody organized his own troupe, the Buffalo Bill Combination. The troupe’ show "Scouts of the Plains" included Buffalo Bill, Texas Jack, and Cody’s old friend "Wild Bill" Hickok. Wild Bill and Texas Jack eventually left the show, but Cody continued staging a variety of plays until 1882. That year the Wild West show was conceived. It was an outdoor spectacle, designed to both educate and entertain, using a cast of hundreds as well as live buffalo, elk, cattle, and other animals."

If Laurie, Linda, Elizabeth and Barbara go out for lunch, they will call each other Laurie, Linda, Elizabeth and Barbara.
If Mark, Chris, Eric and Tom go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Godzilla, Peanut-Head and Scrappy.
When the bill arrives, Mark, Chris, Eric and Tom will each throw in a $20 , even though it's only for $32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.
When the women get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.
A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need, but it's on sale.
A man has six items in his bathroom: a toothbrush, shaving cream, razor, after shave lotion, a bar of soap, and a towel from the Marriott.
The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337.
A man would not be able to identify most of these items.
A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that... is the beginning of a new argument.
Women love cats.
Men say they love cats, but when women aren't looking, men kick cats.
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change , and she does.
A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the garbage, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.
A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.
Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
Women somehow deteriorate during the night.
A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.
A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.
13.THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Any married man should forget his mistakes.
There's no use in two people remembering the same thing.
A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules, jack asses, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically,"Relatives of yours?"
"Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."
**I have to say this does not reflect me, or my ideas of how men and women really are.
I will not spend $1 on a $2 item that I do not need because it is on sale.
I usually will buy it regardless of whether it is on sale or not!
And honestly, I love guys. I accept they are different from women in more ways than our anatomy. I am glad we are so different, I think that is what makes us mesh together so well.
Have a great Monday!

I am in need of a vacation, whew! I am so glad the weekend is here.
Check out this article. I found it to be very interesting...
Police hunt breast enlargement cheats
Wed Oct 4, 2006 1:31pm ET
BERLIN (Reuters) - A German plastic surgeon who was cheated out of payment by several women has given pictures of their enlarged breasts to police, in the hope the photos will help trace them.
"The women registered under fake names," Michael Koenig, a surgeon in Cologne, told Bild newspaper. "After the operations, which lasted about an hour, they just ran away."
"Tanja" went out for "fresh air" after 8,000-euro ($10,000) surgery to enlarge her breasts. "She never came back and never paid," Koenig said. He now plans to demand payment in advance.
Bild published a five-column picture of Tanja's naked breasts. "It's probably the most unusual wanted poster police ever had," the newspaper wrote.

So, didn't you find that to be a fun little tidbit? What do you think? :)
Have a great weekend!

This is what I saw on my way home the other evening. The sun was going down, and it was so beautiful. Look at the amber glow in the horizon. I wish you could have gotten the complete view....the horizon is actually the mountainous rolling hills. These pictures were taken consecutively within a period of about 3 minutes. One minute later, the sun would have been behind the hills, and I would have missed this moment in time.
Have a great day!
