Easter gives you a reason to wear RASPBERRY pants

The SIL gives me a subscription to Esquire, which, as you know, is amusing. It tells you who is wearing jeans this spring, and how. They had an article on COLORED jeans which was pretty useful. Something like what to wear with white jeans, grey jeans, and, as they put it "GO TO HELL, look at me jeans", their example being, of course, bright green jeans. I have bright raspberry colored jeans as some of you know, and you have to figure EASTER weekend is all about the raspberry jeans.

Some folks came over last night for a beer and some bean dip, notably our best pal Norah, the potter, chemist, engineer AND knitter and baker, seen here with the missus.... (you will notice the awesome foam beer holders Kasey sent us from Iowa :)

I was thinking a bright green shirt to go with my raspberry jeans like last time, but then thought bright blue is a nice change...
and look at these 2 party crashers, Jacques Le Soq in the chair and his naughty cousin Georges Le Soq hiding in the flowers....

Georges likes his beers, but remember, he weighs less than a beer, so really, you have to cut him off after a couple of spoon fulls or he gets a little TOO wild...



and speaking of wild monkeys, don't these monkey mugs I made kick AZZ? Happy Easter!

Awesome pants. Don't know anyone else who would be photographed in those, much less post it on the blog. You go!

Jacques looks like he's already half in the bag and check out Georges who seems to be smashed and sitting amongst the flowers!

That's too funny, Gary! lol

Makes me think of blueberries and raspberries- a good pairing.

Fun!

The raspberry pants are awesome. Maude looks so beautiful.

I wish I was your neighbor. Is the house across the street still for sale?

Happy Easter!

Those are azz kickin' monkey cups. Does Georges know about them?

I must admit, raspberry colored pants are quite trendy. Like Kasey, I'm not really a shopper, but if I ever find me a pair... :)

Happy Easter!

Great photo of you and Maude. You are one stylin' dude. Not just anyone can wear raspberry pants...And Georges, good heavens, smashed in the flowers. Did he actually drink a whole bottle of beer?
