Alvinisms 1190

"Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before."

-Mae West (1892 - 1980)

Did you know: Pumpkin pie was first introduced to the holiday table at the pilgrim’s second Thanksgiving in 1623.

Thought of the day: So I really haven't been to Julian since I was a wee lad. I've camped around Julian but never really got to enjoy what other things Julian has to offer. So in desperate need to escape San Diego and quench my wanderlust (I love this word) I asked a few friends if they'd like to come w/ me on a completely open-ended and random trip. (Sorry Jenny, we'll go again ASAP!!!)

A few hours full of fun and just going w/ the wind made for one of my favorite Saturdays. Can't wait to do it again.

Food for thought:

Warm chewy milk chocolate, white chocolate, and oreo chunk cookies. Oh dear me, I want something sweet right now.

-Alvinism of the Wildboyz

I like climbing vines and bushes and the idea of having a porch to chill out on.

You could be a cabin in Mammoth or Tahoe!

How awesome is a collection of swords, scabbards and sheaths?

What's awesome is that they have another jug 3x this size that's full!

Spring, summer time I'm here!!!!

W/ friends like Lindsay how can you not have a good time?

It was a beautiful beautiful day to say the least.

In a Bud Light voice, "HERE WE GOOOO!"


Little house on the prairie...We're actually got lost just driving around.

But we manage to find fun! Wine tasting time.

Linds (Lindsey), Jess (Jessica), Fets (Laurel), me (Filipino Brad Pitt)

Happy times ahead!

Where can I get one of those?

Hahahahaha! Look at Linds and Jess' face.

Yes, yes they were.

Thank you Blue Door.

Farming looks a lot more dangerous than I thought.

Oh hell no.

Let's see what we got here.

Motorcycle art, nice.

And many more of these scary dudes and tons of barbed wire.

Old fruit tossing time. Your glasses looked like 40s. Hahaha!

Juli we miss you! But congratulations to you, Ren, and you're new family.

Love, all of us.

Crouch shot.

There was a whole story behind this.

Fets wants a wall of just wood or stuff or some sort of rad texture. I can see that.

BTW, she shot a lot of these photos.

Found this hidden gem hiding in the bushes.

Happy! Hahaha. And possibly a bit tipsy.

Why eat?

Looks good to me too.

I totally thought these were real and tried squishing one.

Insert used corks here.

Had to buy a bottle from here.

Almost time to eat w/ my heffer.

Here's me choking on a pepper.

This is how we drink wine.

Or is it this way?

Good choice of wineries. Where's the fat cat?

Who knows where each of these glasses will end up someday.

I thought this setup in the back looked familiar.

Not exactly, but reminiscent.

4 seats, four friends. Wish we had maybe just like an hour longer.

Fets said I had to post this picture entitled, "Sexy as you wanna be."

Still sexy as I want to be.

You don't think so Linds?

This is your "sexy as you wanna be" photo.

Ooo yes. All I want is you.

Choices, choices, choices.


Interesting architecture.

Our conversation on "not breathing?"


This was my first time meeting Jess, and hopefully not the last!

Yes, yes, and hell yes!

No wait, decent food, and fun server. Thumbs up for me.

Don't worry, I'm coming for you too!

Had to be a looky loo somewhere.

Knights are cool in any shape or form.

Apple pie and Dudleys are a must.

Smelling what?

Oh heavens.

And more goodness.

I want to replace my blood w/ you.

Dusk is coming.

Thanks ladies.

Fire in sky?

There were a grip of ambulances an not fire engines.

Just follow the powerlines home.

My favorite Saturday of the year.
