Milwaukee Pictures

This past weekend, I went with my Grandmother and my brother, Jay, to my cousin's wedding in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  It was a pretty long weekend with a lot of driving and travel.  The weather wasn't quite optimal, especially considering all my packed dress clothes were sleeveless.  But– it was an absolute great time with wonderful visits with family, story swappage and another solid opportunity to dance to Outkast's "Heya".

One of my favorite moments was when a drunk guy at the reception seemed to take a particular liking to my ninety-one year old Grandmother.  He talked to her for quite some time and kissed her hand a couple of times as well as her forehead.  He kept telling her how great she looks (which she does– she certainly does not look or act like 91) and how amazing she is (which she certainly is).

Grandma and a Drunk Guy

"Is that guy hitting on Grandma?!?" I asked Jay.

"I think so!" He said.

The next morning as I was driving to the airport, Grandma brought that incident up.

"[That man]," she asked, "Is he mentally retarded?" 

I found it hard to not laugh as I explained he was just drunk.  I'm guessing it has been a while since my grandmother has encountered someone that intoxicated…. though Uncle Mark at Adam's wedding was pretty darn close.  🙂

Anyway, my pictures from my trip to Milwaukee are available on my website.

    This reminds me of when I was hit on at the family gathering in the hotel bar after Adam’s wedding. Mom commented that we needed to get me a wedding ring to fend off such attacks, but I thought it was funny. And, I thought I was getting free beer (but later, I found out the beer was free anyway.. d’oh).

    This was when I was introduced to my current favorite beer, Yuengling.

    After Adam’s wedding, I started seeing Yuengling everywhere. I wasn’t sure if in my ignorance, I just didn’t know to look for it, or if after Adam’s wedding, it gained in popularity. Probably the former…

    Probably.

    Why wear rings? that just makes things less interesting 🙂

    Actually, from what I hear– a male wearing a ring may make it *more* interesting. Supposedly women like to hit on married men.

    Supposedly– I don’t have any articles to back up that claim.

    No…. I’ve read that actually. That’s a good point. Hmm…
