The Shermans

Well, it is late and I wanted to blahg about the Shermans today but we have Radical Betty and Aimee over here and we have enough booze here to float a boat and we are partying a bit. Don’t worry, we aren’t drinkin’ it all tonight. I think it’ll last the whole summer. Come on up and help us drink it! Anyway, we are having fun and we even played a dice game and I was winning for a while but I think I lost when all was said and done. I was doing about five things at a time around then and I kept losing track. Anyway. Below is a pic of me and my dog and my first boyfriend, Danny Sherman. We were six. And some old floated-in dredge pipes are in the background. The Shermans used to set up an encampment in our yard here on the Shores of Gitchee Gumee every year when I was a kid. We all shared an outhouse. I loved the Shermans. They were almost like cousins. There were five kids including Danny. And I absolutely idolized his older sister Beth. Danny sent us a whole bunch of pics from the Sherman archives back in the day. I’ll blahg more about the Shermans some other day. But y’all can look at the pics.

    er….you *sure* you left enough for the rest of the summer? Your “(click for more)” would – in FORTRAN at least – get into one of those “endless loops” – just try it!!

    Or, Excel would call it a “circular reference”….

    Yeah, you would not believe how much booze is here. And there was a problem with the slideshow links when I first posted (“shermans” instead of “sherman”) but I think it’s fixed now 😉
