Had a great time in Vienna with the udder spouse. We teeheeeeed and heehaaaaawed until late into the night — that you just have to thank god for deaf neighbors. Here's a pic called Shadows on Grass... which already hints on what we had been up to — which was really no good. I mean, we were standing there looking just like udder people.
And here's her Rude-Olf watching us from the television top. I guess the look on his face says it all. He's supposed to have a red nose... but I swear it was no longer there when I arrived. Mug-shot probably mistook it for a strawberry during one of her lush states. She likes strawberries.
On Sunday I had two huge cups of mulled wine. Wheeeeeeee! My mind did some cartwheels halfway down my first cup, but it sort of stilled afterwards and I didn't feel tipsy at all. When I boasted about it to the husband, he commented that it's probably because my liver had entered a state of paralysis. Tsk. Not that he should talk. He and his colleagues were already drunk from excessive wine-tasting at the Nuremberg trade fair by 10 a.m.
