Working Towards the Wedding

For the first time in weeks, it's quiet around here. The kid is in school and it's too hot to dig, build, mulch, power wash, prune, burn or chop anything down. As my Dad says, "we're polishing a turd over here", but I think it's a lovely and worthy turd.
My sister is getting married in THIS TURD!
So here I am at my desk, dealing with months' old speaking contracts and changing all my Visa card numbers on all my subscriptions and Amazon because I lost my card someplace in the yard and I don't even have time to look for it.

So, about 3 days a week I've been hurling myself at wedding prep, efficiently, says my Polar Loop. Then 2 days a week, Hazel and I kick summer's ass by draining every last drop of fun out of it.  Then, on the weekends we amp it up and do everything you can think of, as long as it's fun.
One of those things was a super impromptu trip to the Wisconsin Dells, where we rode the Ducks, fed some deer and then got the hell out of that soul sucking nightmare.
Then on the way home, we visted Dr. Evermor's Forevertron. It was the best thing I've ever seen in my life. Here are a zillion photos:
