Busy having fun

So my younger sister, Elizabeth, came into town on Thursday for the weekend. We have been having such a fun time that blogging is the last thing on my mind. Well...almost the last thing. Corns, corn, creamed corn, and ethanol (a by product of corn) have probably been lower on my list of things to think of.

Today we're going to a local Great Dane Rescue's picnic. It's an annual picnic that is open to any people who volunteer or those that have adopted from the rescue. We are also allowed to bring our dogs. Current RSVP list shows about 150 people and 100 Great Danes. In one park. That other patrons of the park are currently unaware of. I'm sure they'll get the hint when they see over 1,500 pounds of dog enter the park. :)

It's supposed to be 100 today so we're planning on arriving late. This is due to my dog having a severe intolerance for heat. Since she is a big picky dog, she will NOT drink from water that other dogs already have drank out of. They have HUGE barrels that the dogs can drink out of with like 3" of slobber floating on the top. So I get it. I wouldn't want that either. But since she's such a dark colored dog she just roasts in the heat.

Actually, this is a great representation of how dogs may be like their owners. She probably developed such an intolerance because I would rather have someone make me listen to Nickleback songs repeatedly than roast outside in the sun.

Should be interesting.

Tomorrow we're going to the Mile High Music Festival to see Dave Matthews and his band. :) We're also going to see a bunch of other artists (including Rodrigo y Gabriela) - taking a break halfway through to come home and take a nap. The DMB set doesn't end until 11:15 and then we still have to drive home. Should be around 1 AM by the time we get home. Perfect for us waking up in enough time to be leaving for the airport at 6:15 AM.

Monday I plan on being hungover and tired.

It's good to have goals. :)

Sounds like a Fannetastic cause.
And then to be rewarded with the sounds of DMB...what a way to wrap up a wonderful weekend. "You Never Know", it might actually be a good concert! Better than Nickleback, I'll give you that:)
