Man Weekend - Sunshine Wall, UT

Lafayette, CO - It's HOT. Hot, Hot, Hot I tell you. We still have not gotten around to putting up new shades in the family room where I'm now sitting at my computer. We had blinds there. However, up in our bedroom we couldn't sleep past 5:45 am, when the sunlight hit the bed with it's full force... causing what we figured was a full fledged fire hazard (at least we felt like we were going to burn up). So, we decided to move the blinds from the family room to the bedroom until we figured out what to do next. Now, it's late afternoon in the family room and I feel like my keyboard is about to melt. Anyway, we had the shade people here measuring yesterday, so shades are now about 2 to 3 weeks out (3 day blinds my ass).

No worries, we're moving up to the mountains this week. At a typical high of around 75 degrees, it just sounds a lot more agreeable. Besides, we need to get started on the renovations up there as well. We'll be doing luggage cart dent repairs, painting, and ski boot shredded carpet replacement so that we can put it on a rental program and recoup some cash. So... it should be all nice and spiffy when you all come to visit us for skiing next season!!!

In the meantime I have another photo post. These photos are from the weekend of April 19th. At the wrap up of the kids weekend, I was invited to join Glen and Andrew on their annual "Man Weekend". Women & kids were strictly forbidden. This was a weekend for the guys and their buddies to climb, drink, cuss, smoke, talk shit and eat meat without the burden of their better halves telling em' to cut it out. I was a little nervous as I have not been keeping up on my drinking, smoking, and cussing training, but I figured with all my construction experience, I should do alright.

Besides the climbing, I'm not going into detail about what went on during Man Weekend. I feel that would somehow break some cardinal rule or something. What happens at Man Weekend... you get the idea. Anyway... enjoy the photos.
