Ever have one of those weekend days filled with STUFF, like a work day, except all the scheduled stuff is FUN? We took Penny beagle over to Dave and Amy's farm to walk and fly the KITE...they have Penny's only friend (because she does not like other dogs) Zippy, the little black dog. Amy and Dave have a propeller in the living room and cat art everywhere...and cats! Mew the elderly grey cat is my buddy :) Then, of course, it was burritos out and shopping and finally we went around the corner to Paul and Julie's massive OKTOBERFEST. Thank goodness Paul and Julie live a 30 second walk away across the river, because, well, Oktoberfest, you know??? They are so delightful, even though I figured I would be eating at home, what with all the sausages around the place, but the Germans, thank goodness, also have pickles and pretzels and spaetzles and salads, and, of course, foamy steins full of vegan beers...
Paul and Julie, our excellent neighbors and Germanophiles ....
It was brutally cold and windy out there..the kite liked it....

Ooohhh, love that propeller, very cool! So here's something I don't get. Out here in Denver, Oktoberfest has always been held in Larimer Square (arguably downtown Denver's hippest street). The festival used to be in October but now--every year--it's held exclusively in September. Doesn't that make it "Septemberfest"?
I have heard that Oktoberfest is traditionally held in September...or October :)
I love flying kites. My son was obsessed with kites a few years ago but has moved on to other things now. Too bad.
Okey dokey then, always learning something new, thanks Gary! (I suppose because October is my favorite month, I really want it to be in October.)
i agree with Deborah, oktoberfest in september just doesn't seem right!
looks like you guys had an awesome weekend.
What a fun time you had!!!!! I love the blurry photo...so cute.
I like the presenting of the sausage! That looks like a lot of fun and tiring. I'd need a few days to rest up after all that fun.
The blurry picture makes it seem like the effects of Oktoberfest had taken hold!
