Halloween 2010

GR1 - Fairy Princess
GR2 - on the way to becoming a dinosaur.
Grandrimpy - something gruesome for the umpteenth Halloween in a row.

A little facial hair cosplay while shaving for HST

I was trying for the District Attorney's Drug Conference outfit rather than the usual shorts and Aloha shirt look. It was a failure. For one thing, I'm too fat to pull this off. That's supposed to be a bottle of ether in my hand.
GR1's Jack-O-Lantern.
Rimpyette's G Dragon JOL in background, Grandrimpy's in front.
Rimpy Jr.'s JOL
My JOL - done with a drill because I'm lazy.

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom 2011 or 2012

For her fifth or sixth birthday (I don't rightly remember - this is 2019 now), we took Grandrimpyette 2 to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, California. Below are a few shots from the day.

What it looks like, duh.

The birthday girl

GR2 at the helm.
Man, that kid has skills!

Big Sister GR1 in the foreground. Unidentified teacup passenger in pink shirt.

Some penguins. I don't know why.
Mr. Chipplesworth - The Travelin' Chipmunk, who goes with us most everywhere.
And lastly, some video footage of the teacup ride (this video is acting strangely and I can't get it to sit under the related photo without it attaching itself to the picture of Mr. Chipplesworth:

Sonoma County 2010

We took a trip to Sebastopol and surrounding areas in Sonoma County, California to attend a play written by our dear friend Lizann (who is, sadly, no longer with us as of this update). She had asked me to contribute a piece to her play about breasts:

Casting of Step-Rimpyette's first pregnancy belly, part of decorations for friend's play about breasts.

It's a pretty progressive church that will let you string up dozens of bras for a play about boobs.

View from motel room window. Not much to look at, but love the fog!

Walking about Sebastopol on a foggy morning...

Some electrical box art.

Oh god! What is it?

Sebastopol Community Market...

Someone's happy.
Aubergine Vintage Emporium, Sebastopol...

Cool exterior of huge second-hand clothing store/cafe

Bodega Bay...

Mrs. Rimpington at the ocean.

A rock, without so much bird on it.

View from back of incredible fish and chip shop in Bodega Bay.

Back of awesome little fish and chip restaurant where they've been tossing the shells for many years now. That's an old surf board.

 Sonoma Train Town...

One of the unfriendly goats of the Train Town "petting" zoo. Would take your purchased food, but wouldn't let you pet them.

The minus-five-foot Mrs. R finds a doorway she can almost hit her head on.

More miniscule doors. Our giant son has to duck to look inside.

Mrs. R towers over a train. Obviously train and town are not to same scale.

Some sort of flying thing made of lichen or something that hung incongruously over an air hockey table.

Random sights from Train Town...

Finally, headed home, we spot this wall of brassieres in Gridley, California. It seemed in keeping with the theme of the weekend...
