Time to celebrate Connie, Ralph, and Rachel's birthday (My bad for leaving Rachel's name off the cake. Sorry Rachel.)
Before we can party, we have to drive to Angleton. Before we can drive to Angleton we have to say goodbye to Hammer because he wasn't going with us this trip.
The Mireles-Luna party house. It's in Texas in case you couldn't tell.
The ultimate in cool - your very own outhouse in your back yard. Well done, Jose.
"What the heck are those humans doing?" - Mr. Snail
Even the plants have decorations. This castle was nestled in a potted plant.
Everything is bigger in Texas, including the butterflies.
A bee's work is never done.
This is Jose's workshop.
It's been years since I've gotten a soda from a machine like this. They were everywhere when I was a kid back in the 60s and 70s. Now, not so much. Jose keeps both soda and beer in this working Pepsi machine.
Pay phones are mostly long gone these days. The stands make good plant holders though.
The neighbor's dog smelled the brisket and stopped by to investigate.
Lefty is always ready to be petted. He's a happy dog.
Lolita was on high alert, in case anyone tried to touch him. He definitely will bite the hand that feeds him.
Putting the meat on the grill. It will be ready in about 6 hours.
Just in case you forgot where you are.
The 4 wheeler got a workout today.
The rain showed up right before the party started. It rained the rest of the weekend.
Tuffy blocking the RAV4.
Covered in Jose's secret rub. Mmmm...
Making the Jalapeno poppers.
Borracho beans. Beer is one of the ingredients. Really. Yummy.
Ursula and James
James Bond. Or the Blue Steel look. Not sure which.
Bringing the party supplies.
Best outfit of the night
Playing with the train.
Marilyn Monroe stopped by for a visit.
