Trollopalooza, Part IV - Garden of the Gods

Monday, July 27, 2009
Pikes Peak from a Garden of the Gods Trail.

I prepare to sacrifice my Minion to the Gods, while Acolyte Jeri looks on prayerfully.

The sun through a rock formation.

And finally, our experiences at the Garden of the Gods inspired us to visit someplace special. Someplace that made us think of certain other members of the UCF.


So Jeri, Michelle and I are SAVED. SAVED, I TELL YOU!

Except it wore off on the way to lunch...

Why am I not there, again? ;)

Looks like you girls are having lots of fun!

Jim Wright said...

Focus on the family...through a sniper scope.




Oh what? Don't look at me like that - it depends entirely on the family, take the Cheneys for example...

I wish I was there :(

I wish I was there

Sure, because you're a girl. Me, I'm not going anywhere near Colorado - in that first picture it looks like they're killing off the menfolk in some kind of Wicker Man deal. Screw that. Really.

Jeri said...

Jim, you have skills. I think you'd be a bit difficult to sacrifice because you would't lie still for it. Unless we hypnotized you with our own trollopy powers.

Random Michelle K said...

Janiece wouldn't really sacrifice Michael.

If she did, then she would no longer have a minion.

Wendy said...

Anybody else notice the little yellow sign on the lower left corner of the Focus on Family sign??

Yes, focus on your family, but don't let the little monsters near the sign, please...

What??

Wish I was there, having hell week at work. Bleah.

I definitely wanted to be there (even for the sacrifice of the minion part. But then I saw the last picture.

Yikes -- runs in the opposite direction, quickly!

Eric said...

Focus On The Family... like in a snapshot... a "Family Snapshot, if you will....

I probably shouldn't link to that, actually, considering Dobson's position on people with sniper scopes and political activism....

Janiece Murphy said...

I wouldn't really sacrifice the Fabulous Michael. He is indeed a fine minion.

And I do wish the rest of the Trollops were here with us. So we could tell James Dobson and his ilk to focus on his own damn family.

IT does tend to wear off like one of those temporary tattoos. Most don't survive the drive home from church.

Jim, what, the Cheney's put scopes on their shotguns (their preferred weapon of choice to shoot family members and friends)? That just cinches it for me.

Carol Elaine said...

Poor, poor Michael. Did your minion displease you so that you felt the need to scare him straight?

And I do wish the rest of the Trollops were here with us.

I was wishing that too...until I saw the last photo. I think I would've burst into flame if I had gotten that close to the sign. Or I would've brought spray paint cans. Purely for artistic purposes, of course.

So we could tell James Dobson and his ilk to focus on his own damn family.

I'd focus on Dobson's family...jewels, as I kicked them into a fine mushy paste.

Stacey said...

Carol Elaine - you'd have to FIND his family jewels first....

Looks like a good time was had by all judging not only from the pictures but from the satisfied look on everyone's faces last night.

Hope everyone makes it back to their places of origin today...I'm sad to see you all go and next time I'll get to trollop along with you more.

Best to all...

Stacey, I spend my day around engineering geniuses - I'm sure one of them can supply me with an instrument that can locate tiny shriveled things that have no purpose. Which I can then kick into a fine mushy paste.
