As promised here is the second installment of pictures. First off, the new "cottage." Uh, yeah, not exactly a cottage. It may not have a larger footprint than the old place but it's got three levels whereas the old place only had one. It's got a very pretty spiral staircase which is highlighted in what the family refers to as the penis window there on the side.
The neighbor's van. Totally groovy! I dig it!
Playing around with portraiture...here's my stepmom.
And Dad...who Isaac describes as "the scary guy who doesn't wear shirts." He was less than thrilled when I aimed Boom-Boom in his direction but he managed to not grimace.
At least Dad sat still. I had to chase the bee all over the tops of the flowers.
These were down near the beach. I dunno what they are. We'll call them Beachicus Orangium Trumpetia. I read a Latin primer while I was at the beach. Yes, I have weird ideas about how to relax. I'm sure I didn't decline any of that made of botanical name even remotely correctly so clearly I absorbed little from the primer. I say fake it till ya make it.
Here is Twinicus Vinum. (The secret is to say it with confidence.)
The other side of the neighbor's van sums up my whole last year pretty well, dontcha think?
