Midnight Madness - My Summer Vacation by Mr Mike

Spending time with the cute little Bunny!

Well, Vacation's about over for me so I thought I would write a little recap of my time off the last two weeks with my wonderful wife Bunny.

Ewok Village - First, we went to Muir Woods, a peaceful place filled with tall trees that have been around for ages. It was a cool, pleasant walk through nature and the place where scenes of Return of the Jedi was filmed. My wife did the Ewok horn call a couple of times. I kept thinking of the "Nub Nub" song at the end of the original Jedi. Looks like the real title might be Yub Nub .

Do you know the way to San Jose? - We had wanted to see San Jose's Japantown for a long time. The website made it look like an exciting place to be. Instead what we found was about a three block ghost town with some shops and very little of interest. The song that goes with this? Everybody Knows This is Nowhere .

Wall E - We had a good time at the movies watching Pixar's Wall-E. At the end, we were surprised to hear the voice of Peter Gabriel singing a song from the soundtrack called Down to Earth .

My Mom's Birthday - My mom had a birthday which we celebrated by having a BBQ at my parents house. It was a fun time and we played a challenging game of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. After playing the board game, I can almost understand why something like this would happen. Almost.

Emergency Toe Service - A quick trip to Lake Berryessa was a lot of fun. We went swimming for the day in the lake, which was a little dried up and had algae but still had enough water to play in. We both got a little burned. As Van Halen would say, I'm On Fire!

I'll take Park Place and Boardwalk - Last Friday, we went to Santa Cruz to visit the Boardwalk. We had a great time riding roller coasters and water rides as well as watching a performance by Eddie Money. It was Two Tickets To Paradise .

To close this one out, I'll use 38 Special's "Back To Paradise". Thanks for a great vacation, love you Bunny!

Sorry you have to go back to work, Mr. Mike, instead of hanging out with the beautiful Missus Mr. Mike a little longer. But... all good things must come to an end, or thats what I've heard, anyway. Just think of it as saving up for next time. :)

Thanks Some Kinda Wonderful!

Great job! Okay that's the most adorable bunny pic I've seen so far!!! And yes.. the original ending and village song was the best of the 2.. and they shouldn't have changed the ghost.. okay I digress again. Glad you had a wonderful time and thanks for putting up pics! The one Jeannie took were fantastic!

Jeannie said...

Awww...I love you too. See ya in 50 weeks!

Fifty weeks- that was too funny!

Mr. Mike said...

Hi frontrow! 50 weeks? Well, I say 49 weeks,6 days and 23 hours- but who's counting? Just kidding, that was a good one!

Hi Arsentte! I couldn't believe of all the things George Lucas thought he had to change it was the Nub Nub song. Bunny's pics are great!

Hi Bunny! Love you too!
