The Salty Dawg !!

Hitting the spit one must ALWAYS at least once hit the SALTY DAWG SALTY Ive been going to the "Dawg" since I was able to pass off my fake ID. Back in the Day I worked at a store that was directly across the dirt road from the Dawg and my college Friend Lori had the opposite shift as me. So she'd hang at the dawg until I got off work at 10:00. That was one hell of a fun Summer! My dad actually used to work at the Dawg back in HIS day. Back then there were no carvings on the Bar or bills on the wall. Kinda funny he met my mom there too!! Ü I have a couple a great pics of them then. i should really scan them and put them up. Annnny Wayyyy the Krap sisters and I hit the Dawg. We decide that night that we would be the CKRAP sisters as my sister Chuck was with us. See we are quite flexible in incorporating new "sisters"!!

See this I carved it in the Summer of 1985. This is out in the pool room area and Lori and I spent MANY an hour here! Hey all the cute guys hung out here!! Plus this is were Lori would smoke her big ass Cigars! And School the guys at pool.

Here is Chuck early er in the day when we were playing tourist! Later that night we were talking about this and we both had wanted to go in and have a quick one but didn't want the other to think we were boozers!! lol It was after 12:00 at least!

Hey it ain't a toast with out a DUCK FART or 10!!

A little pearl of wisdom in the potty room.. They even supply the sharpie in case you too are inspired to slap drunken wisdom up!
Penny really liked these ......

So we thought we needed to slap up our own dollar. And of course the shortest one got to do it. Ok ok I admit I hoped up there THINKING I could reach !

See if ya drink alot of Duck Farts ya get taller ya know! Check out the women on the stool doesn't she just look like she is thinking "what the hell is nut job doing? " This is why tourist should not hang with locals. ;op

Here is a close up of out CKRAP dollar!

While slapping up the dollar this bra "may have fallen into my hoodie" !!

Hey look its an eye patch! Ya know like a Bra Pirate!

Later back at our campsite We were reliving the bra burning era!

Snack'en off the Land !

We spent last weekend being SPIT RATS. Aka camping on the Homer Spit. The Boys wanted to harvest some muscles so off to "Muscle Beach" we went.
The Future Glitter Queen was finding all kinds of treasures on the beach. We found a Jelly Fish and I wouldn't let her pick it up. She was MAD so I let her check out the Sea Urchin instead!

OK its not really called muscle beach but it should be! Check this out ALL muscles hardly any work involved picking them!!Makes ya wonder why they are 12 bucks for six in a restaurant??

Coke Machine bring one of many bags of muscles we collected. See the dark spots MUSSELS not rocks. It was a free for all!

On are way back from muscle beach we decided to take a peak over at the entrance of the fishing hole for lures people snag them on the rocks all the time. I found one I swear I lost a few weeks back! Any how here is Coke Machine given his cousin a lift over a stream.

When we got to Fishing Hole the tide was out so I though we could walk threw it instead of going ALL the way around. And when i looked down I saw a TON of Sea Urchins so the boys started diving for them! I couldn't really get a pic as i was "boob high" in water and trying NOT to get every ones cell phones and my camera wet. But here are some of there finds!

You don't cook Sea Urchins ya just eat the row. And the boys were in HOG HEAVEN!! I on the other hand had to PASS!! OK if the row is on Sushi iam all over it like a "big dog" but to grab one and start digging in Iam a gonna have to say NO!!!

Blake-A-Sores is SERIOUS about this!!

Here we got one of the many Batches of Muscles we ate that day. OK OK I know gross right?? I had never had one before but I thought what the hell I ll give a whirl. They were GOOD I tell ya. No really they were!!

Here is the Coke Machine Haven a midnight snack of of them!

We stayed at the Beach for 3 days so I have a few more posts to go!!

4th of July

We had a GREAT 4Th of July even though I helped at the lodge helping prepare for it for 3 days. We chopped ,baked and decorated. Hey we had wine so it made things go MUCH faster!! ;op Ive helped with the raffle part the last 3 or 4 years and it is ALWAYS fun!! Dee and I had a good time and it went FAST!! So we got to enjoy a wonderfully Sunny and warm day!!

Monkey Boy REALLY REALLY liked the water balloons! Hey got his dad more then once!

Coke Machine,Boon and the girls got into the kids games and enjoyed the balloon toss. I think Boon needed the practice so he could dodge Monkey BOY!!

The Lodge always has a HUGE barbecue and there largest fund raiser for the year on the 4Th. The tickets are a 100 bucks that gets you food and beer for the whole day and a chance to win 12000.00 dollars!! One my tickets was in the last batch of 20 UGH so close yet sooooo far!! Sunny and Nancy Smith from Glacier won and I just love those 2 so much I couldn't be anything but HAPPY for them! What was even better there son Mark came instead of them and when he called them to let them know they had won they called him a damn liar LOL took him 20 minutes to convince them they were $12000.00 richer!

The joy of working the raffle is that you get to give the winners there checks!! Here is my Dad who won for selling the winning ticket and Jan collected a few hundeys for 10Th and 100Th draw.

We all headed to the parade after and we saw Big Al and Penny in the crowd!

Fountain wading......

Ok so out side the Casino there was this fountain witch was pretty cool and I felt the NEED to have my picture taken in front of it. I thought Chi and I should be in front of the Indian dude that was in the middle of it. Sooo that meant wading out in to the fountain.............

Hey Dont wanna get my pants wet.

Some how it was a little deeper then I thought.....

Does this shot make my ass look fat??!! BAHHaaa Iam gonna have vote yes!!

By this shot I was laughing way to hard to even try and get a pic.

Chi was being a big party POOPER and wouldn't come out the rest of the way!! But in her defense she was barefoot and the bottom was a bit rocky.

Here we are heading back to Seattle . They put us in the back for there own sanity I am sure!

After a quick potty break Chi HAD to show me this sculpture. Its a three piece one but the rest of the pics are too dark. Actually really kinda cool made out of old scrap metal chains and stuff and is on lone from some were crap France I think or was it Canada ????
