Death by Dragon Scales

This is the sort of madness you get served up when you order the Dragon Scales off the menu at The Dragon's Pub - an adorable little pub located off Main Street just a couple miles down the road from our house. It's located directly on the banks of the Kentucky River and has a wonderful, not-so-little patio overlooking it. Not only were the Dragon Scales overwhelming in size (they were gigantic!), they were a little overwhelming as far as the ingredient list also - in a good way. Keep in mind, this is all prepared fresh while we are sipping our beer in the breeze and watching the boats glide by: freshly home made potato chips, hot wing sauce, crumbled crispy bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, and crumbled blue cheese - to top it off, a side of blue cheese dressing for dipping. Unbelievably delicious!

Mister not only ate about half the Dragon Scales, but a BBQ Bacon Burger, a side of fried banana peppers, AND two beers! I had to roll him out of there. :)

This was the view from where we were sitting. I swear I love this place. Funny thing though. We were sitting there chatting, and someone drove over the bridge and threw a bunch of crap out of their car window into the water. We hear a large splash...and I was stunned. Into the water? Are you that dumb? You couldn't even throw it on the side of the road where some other kind hearted individual might actually help make up for your individual laziness by depositing it into a trash receptacle...had to be in the waterways, huh? Brilliant.

Mister wanted to take a picture of my little Boho Feather Hair clip that I had in -  it was sent to me by the wonderful Brandy from the brandy-son Zen master flash blog. He really liked it and thought I should show her some love. So ♥♥♥!!!!!

Well, I'm about to glue myself to the couch to geek out for another 10 hours straight. Mister got his PS3 finally. He's been wanting it for a really, really long time. We've been a mutant ass kicking husband and wife team in Borderlands for the past two days. What a better way to bond as a couple then to pop some caps in some crazy rabid mutant dogs????

'til next time...

I'm freaking melting!!!!

No one said when we moved to Kentucky that'd we'd be experiencing the worst of EVERYTHING!!!!!

So far we've had the driest and least colorful Fall of the decade, to be shortly followed by an icier, snowier, longer than usual Winter.....and now this???? I just pulled up and the temperature is 93°, but it says it feels like 113°. Well. To be honest I don't know what it feels like cause my happy ass is staying indoors...but it's freaking hot!!!!

Mister and I drove to get some ice cream yesterday from the only game in town....

They have some crazy flavors now that I always consider trying, but alas always stay true to either Rocky Road, Mint and Chip, or Rainbow Sherbert.

This time Rainbow Sherbert won my heart....

Trust me they had no time to melt!

It's a HUGE bummer that even though we have Rite Aid out here, they don't even carry thier own brand of stinkin' ice cream!!!

I'm thinking another trip to good 'ol B and R might be order again for today....

'til next time...

The beer was cold...

This last weekend was spent at the farm in Indiana enjoying family, friends and some fireworks!

We had TONS of food, a keg, a band playing and corn hole!!!

My wonderful MIL, Sandy, got up to sing a bit also
(that's her on the right of the keyboard)

The guys really enjoyed their fireworks that went bang and blew the sky open - but I was more involved with the little ones like these....


I found the cutest little fireworks out here!
There are even metal sparklers still! Freaking metal!

Had a blast! Wish I had taken more pictures, but truth be told I was a bit tipsy and managed to only take pictures of really stupid things all night long!!!!

I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July!

'til next time...
