Barry goes to the Bahamas

I swear, he has the touch. He wins everything--or somehow reaps the benefits. Just after Barry started working in Chicago, his friend/roommate won two spots on the Bud Light Port Paradise cruise. Dave Matthews Band plays on a private island on Sunday.

They flew down early this morning, and already they had lost Barry's luggage. When I spoke to him, he was on a bus being shipped from airport to cruise port, and the Bud Light was clearly already flowing.

Somehow, I suspect that is the last we will hear from him for a few days. They are going to have a blast--two old goats on a boat full of hotties that think they are old perverts. And they totally are (well Clay is only about 32, but he has 4 kids, so that counts). That makes me feel better while I freeze my tail off up here dealing with horses who have clearly lost their minds, and try to manage a crew of fence builders of the Amish persuasion tomorrow, and also drag myself out of this funk I have been in.

I have to admit I am more than a little jealous, because I know how much fun these quick getaways are. Mine keep me sane, and I know how hard he has been working....he deserves it. And he better behave his dirty self

Hm! I suspect there is "pay back" some time along the way! ! !

Hope the weekend with "your MEN" goes well----while they work at fencing.

Enjoy anyhow Carol

Looks like he will have a great time and glad he is getting a chance to R&R.

Hope your fence building goes well today!

Hang in there!

Of course, he's a winner. He won you, didn't he?

MrC is lucky like that too! He always has people taking him to the Oaks, asking to take him on golf getaways and whatnot.

I hope Barry has fun! (And behaves himself!)

Oh I would send my hubby off and say have a good time. As science says when men come back from a testosterone filled event, they are " happier" **** cough****

I'm sending mine off as i type for a three day men only hunting trip.

don't forget to send me pictures of what you would like for your necklace, I really dont think it will take that much tail.

Behave his dirty self is a funny statement considering your most previous blog post re: the same...dirty jokes for $1.
