Beastly, Come and Gone

Sunday, March 28, 2010
So Beastly finally arrived last night about 9:20 p.m., and I fed him a huge portion of Hungarian Goulash, which he seemed to enjoy, along with some Pete's Wicked Ale. Of course, we sent this photo to Jim, as proof of life:


That one's kind of an inside joke, so I don't expect most of you to get it. It was funny to us, though.

Beastly then brought in his wood turning inventory for us to peruse and admire, and after much deliberation, I chose the square piece as my "hostess gift." This morning, after Anne arrived to join us for breakfast, I subsequently pawed through his inventory again, and ended up buying these other pieces, too, mostly because (as the Smart Man noted), I like wood.


Alas, Beastly and Anne both had to leave after breakfast, so the Smart Man took this farewell photo in front of Beastly's RV, and they drove off into the bright sunshine.


Thanks for stopping by, Beastly. Next time, you're staying long enough to build us that pergola. :-)

None of those fine wooden items appear to be wearable as footwear. Are you slipping?

Janiece said...

Obviously.

Juan Federico said...

That's a skill I've always admired. Woof.

Beastly said...

Nathan it's hard to turn wooden shoes but I am willing to give it a shot. Janiece Thank you again for a fantastic goolash, good beer, great company and a very comfortable room. It was tough to leave but I have things to do, places to be, gotta go, gotta go. Enjoy the wood work. Thanks again.

Jeri said...

Why do you 'gotta go'? Janiece is a hostess with the mostest, she'd spoil you rotten.

Beastly, I look forward to your attempt at shoes!

Janiece said...

Beastly, you're welcome here any time.

Anne C. said...

I think that's the issue, Jeri. Too much spoiling and a man starts to turn soft... can't have that. ;)

Beastly's visit was brief, but enjoyable, and his skill at turning wood is amazing. Thanks for sharing the visit with me, Janiece and Beastly!

HeHeHe, SmartMan said you like wood.

Vagabond said...

Janiece, Thanks for the chance to virtually meet Beastly. I am now a follower and am looking forward to hearing more about his travels. With all that is going on in my life now, it doesn't look like I'll be hitting the road any time soon, so I can live vicariously!

Anne C. said...

Hee! Mechanicky Gal, I had the same reaction. (Because I'm 12 at heart.)

Janiece said...

We're all 12 at heart. Did you think the Smart Man meant the comment in any other way?

Tom said...

I'm gonna join the 12-year-olds, but I'm also gonna sit in the back of the room, cause even though I thought it, I woodn't have said anything if you guys hadn't piped up first.

Anne C. said...

Well, we all might think it, but only the truly 12ish would laugh and enjoy it.

(And I like to think that he meant it many ways, because that is the beauty that is a pun. It is multiple truths wrapped up in one statement.)
