Weekend Update

Okay, so I'm a little late, but better late than never huh?

Last Thursday was Lori's birthday (All I'll say is she is over 21 and is over the age of consent.) and Friday was our Fifth Month Anniversary. (Can you believe we have been seeing each other for 5 months already?) Thursday through Monday morning we celebrated both special days.

Thursday Lori's children took her out for dinner and they invited me to come along.

Friday Lori came over to my place after she got off of work. I gave her, her presents. She asked me to wrap them in aluminum foil. (Don't ask!)

I got her a laptop. She has a VERY old Mac that keeps locking up on her when we chat online at night. It became such a pain in "my" ass that I decided to replace it for her.

Last weekend was the Annual Sayville Summerfest so we went up there Friday to check it out. Friday was just the carnival and a lot of food booths. We saw the food booth for a local restaurant that advertised a deal on a lobster dinner at the restaurant. Lori had never had lobster so we went over there to eat. For $12.95 they had a 1 pound lobster, corn on the cob and baked small red potatoes. They also gave us a basket of rolls and corn bread.

(Pardon the picture. I know it sucks, but it's all I have.)

When we got back home, we went right to bed because we were both so tired. Heck, we were so tired we didn't even snuggle. But Saturday morning we made up for it. :-)

Saturday afternoon we went up to town to check out the events. Town closed off Main Street to traffic and they had an Art Show of sorts. A lot of local artists showed their painting, drawings and photography and had it for sale if you wanted to buy it.

We were there about an hour when Lori got a call from one of her co-workers. We met them at a local pub in town. We stayed for a while and had a few drinks with them. We wanted to walk around the Summerfest, but they wanted to drink some more, so we left. We cruised the many craft booths and got something to eat too. We had sausage and peppers and grilled corn. Then back to my house for a swim. (Naughty Lori went skinny-dipping but don't tell her I told you.)

Sunday we got up and had breakfast by the pool.

After breakfast we went back up to the Summerfest. This was the day we really wanted to go because they had a car show with 350 classic cars! (Yes, 350!) Most of them were from the 50's and later. The highlight for Lori was seeing the car from the movie 'Christine'. (She even touched the door handle.) That movie is a favorite of hers. They also had go-cart races, which was very cool.

Here are some pictures I took of the cars.

Lori loved the lobster dinner we had Friday night so much, that she suggested we have it again that night for dinner. I really enjoyed the lobster myself so agreed. I decided to get a couple of fresh ones and cook dinner for her.

First we went up to the local farm stand and bought fresh tomatoes, red onion and corn on the cob and then I drove over to the fish market and bought two fresh live lobsters.

When we got home, I made the tomato salad so the flavors could blend until it was time to eat. I made it with fresh tomato, basil and onion with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar. We also cleaned the corn and soaked it in some water so I could grill it. Then we made a couple of drinks and went for a swim. Here's some shots of me showing Lori how not to dive.

Here's a picture of me grilling the corn.

The corn turned out good.

Dinner turned out GREAT!

Then we cleaned up. Well, Lori cleaned up. We have a deal, if I cook, she cleans up.

Then we watched some TV and went to bed for, uh, snuggling. (Come to think of it, we did quite a bit of snuggling last weekend.)


Stay tuned for my post about next weekend. My son Brian is going upstate for the weekend, which leaves Lori and I alone without worrying when he and his girl friend will pop up. One thing for sure is that we won't have a lot of dirty laundry since clothing will be optional and even discouraged all weekend. Sort of like the rules in nudist camps. ;-)

Anyone want to come over?

You crack me up!!! I love outdoor art festivals. We have one here every April that is a complete and utter delight to stroll through. The people watching is almost as fun as the art browsing!

Ahhh The old cars! I love them. I myself have a 54 Packard and 2 63 Panhards. Now the Panhards came directly from France,have 2 cyclendar engines and suscide doors. All 3 cars need work as my dad didnt take care of them. The only car he took care of and still does to this dat is the 37 1/2 Packard convertible. As for the swimming I cant swim but I can float and tread water. my hubby on the other hand is a good swimmer. Lobsters! YUM and fresh too. Again Im so jealous of you living that close to the water.

Have to admit, I laughed my ass off at your diving pics, and then said "Damn! That had to hurt!"
