Many years ago, when I was a young and idealistic teenager, my family and I used to spend summer vacations at an old mountain lake resort in the Catskill Mountains. Though we were surrounded by vast wealth, I always chose to spend my time socializing with the resort staff. It was there that I learned about people from different worlds. And while I learned some major lessons about life during those memorable summers, I also learned a thing or two about dancing.
Fuck, I'm sorry. That wasn't me. It was Jennifer Grey in "Dirty Dancing." I always get the two of us confused.
This past weekend, BossLady and I took the Peanut to a great resort up in the Adirondack Mountains. While it wasn't quite "Kellermans," there were enough similarities that, every once in awhile, BossLady and I would see something that would immediately make us break out into our karaoke version of "I Had the Time of My Life." I won't go into all the details but let's just say that when we went to dinner, most of the men were dressed in navy blazers and white trousers. I couldn't figure out if they looked more like Captain Steuben or like Ted Knight in "Caddyshack." Crap, I don't think I would have felt more out of place if I had been dressed in drag! Ever seen a 6' Asian guy in a muumuu? Me neither but I can't imagine it's a pretty sight.
Anyway, I shouldn't make fun. The resort was absolutely gorgeous, the weather was perfect and our suite had a private deck overlooking beautiful Lake George. I'll post more about the trip over the coming week but, right now, I just got my new Mac and the two of us need to spend some quality time together.
So, in lieu of a real post, I'll leave you with some photos of the weekend...
"Boat, shmoat. Hook me up with some more snacks, Gilligan."
Back home again, Peanut comes to understand that you never really know a man until you've walked a mile in his loafers.
I hope you and your families all had a great Memorial Day weekend and that, between beers and barbecues, you took some time to remember and honor those who died in our nation's service.
