    your's truly ?

    Truth be told, we both pulled this off in awesome fashion. G had his beautiful wife and I had a 62 y.o. ex Miss Virginia.
    Without such props, it wouldn't have been pulled off.

    Both GandJ, and my partner and myself were awarded costume prizes. I'm calling this thing a draw with no further tabulations necesary.

    I'd also like to share, that G was gracious enough to send me the jacket. Class act !

    My event was a Halloween Pickleball tournament. We went as far as the semis but content we had a good time, won something and have the wife jealous.

    Happy Halloween !

    Thanks for the comments, Blackford. You and Miss VA look great! I think both you and I won, being that we were lucky enough to have bunnies accompany us to a Halloween party.


    You definitely wore that jacket better. In my photo above, I look a bit disheveled after a night of partying, ... jacket all askew.

    Is Miss VA either Dona Marie or Barbara? Those are about the closest looking ones I could find from photos of that era when she would have been Miss VA.

    Kudos to Janet for the stylish high cut hip!

    Kudos to Ms VA for wearing her outfit so well!

    Kudos to Glen and "Blackie" for having the idea of taking their picture next to such good looking women!

    It's not anymore about if you can slip them on or off. These days it's about slippin it in and out.

    Why did I wear crocs ? Couple of reasons. First of all, I live in them. More seriously, due to my back issues, I've become misaligned and have chronic issues with my achilles and foot fatigue. I was participating in a tournament that was going to tax my feet and back. Because G was nice to share his jacket with me, I was texting him during the course of the day. A couple text snaps included an achilles rest on a big sack of ice and another being soaked in a bucket full of the same. Because Saturday's rain postponed the Men's event, all matches were squeezed into Sunday. I ended up playing 9 matches in the span of seven hours. Maintaining my comfort was a key to surviving the event.

    In hindsight, I should have brougt some slippers or hooves for the unexpected photo ops as my partner did.

    As far as her age, you know I can't ask. People in the club have told me and I know as a fact she participated in a tournament in a 60+ bracket. Anyways, that doesn't matter. She's a nice thing to look at.


    Agree that G and I got outshined by our playmates.That's what it was all about.


    Anybody sporting anything interesting tonight ?

    Blackford and I definitely got outshined.... but we can take it.
    The girls are doing okay, ... being 60+ and almost 47. Great to see 'em give the youngsters a run for their money.


    Not wearing any costumes tonight. Staying home to hand out the candy. Later, we'll post photos from this year's party, which was a couple nights ago.

    Do you have the following still ringing in your eardrum ? .......

    I'm a Tar Heel bred
    And when I die
    I'm a Tar Heel dead.
    So it's Rah, Rah, Car'lina-lina
    Rah, Rah, Car'lina-lina
    Rah, Rah, Car'lina-lina
    Rah! Rah! Rah!

    Looking forward to seeing you get outshined again.

    As for me, It's Monday Night Football at my sister's, as my Queen and Bumble Bee buzz around, pollinating the town of Celebration.

    We're Carolina Basketball fans (they're a unamimous #1 in pre-season poll), but we did not go to school there. We both went to Coll. of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA .... a.k.a. "Bill and the Beotch".


    Have great time Trick or Treating!

    Katalina and I were black swans and Michelle was a white swan. The total swan count on Lincoln was about 15. Lots of feathers to clean up tomorrow!

    Blackie, What's her secret? She looks great! And so do you, by the way. And Glenn and Janet as well.

    I can teach you some yoga poses to help with that achilles problem.

    I have a very goofy video from my friend's Halloween party. I'll post here once I upload it to Youtube.

    Oh, I think that jacket should go on display at some 411 Hall of Fame or something ... it's classic!

    That jacket is making it's way back to Mid-Atlantic this week.

    Maybe it can work it's way back down to Miami for next year's Halloween.... You hear me Gus and Michelle !

    G: We took last year off...but we're going to reclaim " best costume " at annual Halloween Pickleball Tourney.

    Miss Virginia already demonstrated for me her Jeanie charms. Wife is jealous.

    After hitting up a couple Army Surplus stores, found my best option online. I'm just waiting for delivery.

    That should be great! Make sure you get lots of photos. We want to see Miss Virginia in her Jeanie costume.
