Amazing Grace

Z asked if anybody had recorded "Amazing Grace" with Flatfoot 56 the other night. While I don't know about that, here they are playing it elsewhere, and it was pretty similar:

It's so far been a positively great weekend in the Motor City. It started with chciken wings, beer and a three-way of intellectual intercourse with A of the K&A faction last night, prompting sleeping in this morning before a trip to the Eastern Market and a stop in at Vivio's for more than a few of the absolute best Bloody Marys in the city.

Good Market Day

Trips to the Eastern Market are always so much fun. Aside from getting delicious fresh produce, there's always the "run-in factor," the old friends that we'll see that we haven't seen in months. Today it was an old artist friend we hadn't ssen in a year and a musician friend (who holds the long-running title for being the girl who gives out the best hugs) that we hadn't seen in half a year.

Now at this point, we're not even halfway through the weekend; we still have a lot to go. Tonight, it's dinner with Mr. and Ms. Yoda and an Orbitsuns show. Tomorrow, it's a few hours with the best haircutter in the city, and then a bike ride.

This truly is the type of weekend that needs to be fully enjoyed.

Especially love the pipes.

Plus, this is the best Sunday ever. Moose's 22nd birthday, and he didn't wake up in jail this morning!!!

Last night he played $10 in a slots tournament against a bunch of senior citizens, and won, and used his $200 in winnings to buy a round for his buddies before heading to McDonald's to buy them "dinner," and then to the grocery store to buy a bag of kibble for a friend who took in a pitbull as a favor to someone else, thinking said pitbull wouldn't mind living on table scraps, which it probably wouldn't, but I guess Moose was feeling "nurturing" after bilking the elderly out of $190 in quarters, which is ... completely in keeping with the idea that grace is a free gift. I guess.

Come on over for Mom's Meatloaf and Batman cake!
