And a good time was had by all...

And a good time was had by all...

This is Monkey, he's a truck driver. It's not often I get to see Monkey, but his schedule permitted him to visit between drops. He arrived at about 7:00 in the evening at the local truck stop and I was sent out into the bitter cold to fetch him.

Yeah right, Tennessee cold is nothing like what Monkey has been recently facing. Minnesota, now that's cold. Michigan is freezing right now too. He must've brought some snow with him, because we received our first dusting this last weekend as well.

We proceeded to wine and dine our Monkey; Corned Beef Brisket, redskin potatoes, cabbage, onions and a side of sour kraut served with a fine "Roseycheeks" table wine from our local winery. I had warned him to bring an appetite, and as usual, he did not disappoint! After we had all had our fill and the wine was gone, Monkey brought out his two folders of anime and we whittled away the night with Gundams and assorted AMVs.

The picture you see above is one of two taken that night. This was after dinner and wine had set in and our Monkey was becoming acclimatized to his surroundings. The first picture was, uh... a bit too much smile.

Thanks for stopping by, man. I really did enjoy the visit and I hope the feeling was mutual.


P.S. He's single at the time of this writing, ladies. He's a nice guy with a good job... and he's straight! How often do you find that? *laughs*
