The moveable feast that was Labor Day weekend

Irishfest KC

 From Santa-Cali-Gon to Irishfest to cocktails at the Temple with friends in from Columbia; we did not waste a second of our holiday weekend.

Ekey's kilt
This was a great weekend to break out the new kilt... warm and breezy... Although, I need to learn more about my Tartan choice. The woman at the St. Peter's beer booth looked at my kilt and instantly assumed I was a supporter of St. Teresa's...

I was far too interested in my tall beer she was holding to start any kind of Q & A. So I agreed and she jeered me as I walked away.

Then, a real live Irish woman asked me who my Tartan was representing... I suppose saying "No one, I just wanted an excuse to not wear pants in public..." would have been a bit crass. Instead I continued the lie and said it was St. Teresa's

Dear, St. Teresa's... I'm sorry. I am pretty confident you are an all-girls school and this is not even close to representing your school or institution or saint of choice. 

But we digress. 

From the booze soaked streets of Crown Center and Irishfest, we then moved to the Craft booths and cross stations of Santa-Cali-Gon.

For 26 years I have taken this annual mullet hunting expedition in IndepMo, and usually it never disappoints.  However the number of mullets was dramatically lower than previous years... I blame the economy...

Aren't kilts Scottish?

My partner and I really enjoyed reading this blog post, I was just itching to know do you trade featured posts? I am always trying to find someone to make trades with and merely thought I would ask.
