Coming up for Air! Friday Fun Day!



Finally!  I'm back and have a little bit of AR time! I haven't been out of town, just busy with biz. I do feel like I've got some time to think of things other than business so that's a good thing.  We're gearing up for 30 or 40 folks for our October Fest Food and Beer tasting tomorrow night. This afternoon Gary and I are working on getting things arranged and planned out so it's all goes smoothly tomorrow night.


So I'm taking a break to post a few of our crazy Halloween costumes over the years. The picture above was the Monte Python theme. Can you guess what characters were were playing?


These were wild!  We made up our own theme that year!

King and Queen of Snow!


This year we had fun dressing up for the October AR contest for posting new profile photos.


 Or try out the Halloween Contest! Did you enter yet? There is still time!



Well that's it for today. Gotta run as my side kick (Barney) is barking and he says - Mom it's time to go outside and help Dad!


Have a GREAT weekend!




Anna, Gary and Barney

The photos are a testament to good times, Anna.  I must say however, if I was gearing up for a gathering tomorrow with 30 or 40 people, I don't know how I'd find time for AR.
