A Rock-n-Roll Oasis
April 2007, we finally
were able to make it to The Pimp and Ho Ball in Bisbee. Our friend Jason
hosts this annual party, but usually we were not able to make it. This
year we could and I got all ho'd up in my orange polyester pant suit and blonde
afro. I had some pasties that Desiree D'Amour had made me for a group
number that I was in, so I wore those underneath my costume. Later in
the evening, Juliet helped me strip out of my jumpsuit and I was twirling my
pasties delighting the crowd at Hot Licks Saloon. What a night!
In May, Jackie came out
for her annual visit for my birthday and we decided to take a road-trip to Flagstaff,
Petrified Forest, Holbrook, Patagonia and then finally, Bisbee, Arizona.
That was a good birthday vacation. We ran off to vistit The Holbrook House
in July, then The Kihls had a harvest Pagan Party at their house in Bisbee at
the beginning of August. We camped out in their backyard with about 8
other parties of people but it rained all day and we were pretty much flooded
out. Our tent was completely soaked and so were our pillows and sleeping
bags. But after a case of beer between Don and I, it didn't make too much
of a difference. At the end of August I went to Santa Monica, CA for work
related business, but I didn't like the area I was in. There wasn't any
funky places, it was mostly touristy stuff. I was mistaken for a paparazzi,
however, while I was photographing things and the guy even hit on me.
The fancy hotel was quite fun though and my last night I had dinner in The Penthouse
Restaurant on the 17th Floor with some of my fellow trainees. That was
amazing! And, my boss even paid for it!
Islands for my 40th Birthday in May. I've started my second black velvet
painting of Joan Jett and if it turns out, I hope it will be hanging in The
Surley Wench Pub by Autumn 2008. We are also going to Portland, Oregon
for The WFTDA Championships in November 2008 and also hopefully visiting Seattle
and Vancouver, B.C. I've never been north of San Francisco, so I'm very
excited to explore this part of the U.S. and Canada. Maybe we'll never
Ok, I hope you've made
it this far. Happy 2008 and don't forget.........JANUARY 20, 2009, BABY!.......vote
