 When 60-Somethings celebrate the 1960s...........

I'm wearing my own dress from 1967 and Dwight is sporting his love beads as we head off to the 60s party......

 Topaz is non-plussed--she thinks parties are nonsense......

 We are met at the door by our wonderful host, the groovy Dwight G.........

 The fare for the evening is an array of fabulous snacks as this is an hors d' oeuvres party.........

 Our bitchin' hosts...........

 And some of their psychedelic guests.........

 Eat your heart out, Jim Morrison, Dwight G is the true "Lizard King" who gets all the groovy chicks...........

 Well shod and un-shod 60s feet.................

 And these girls had LOTS of fun!...............

 Hail to thee, Oh swinging hippie chick...................

 Rocking and rolling...........

 Dwight channelling his inner 60s self...........

 And at last breaks free of all that Horsemen identity to transform to his secretly desired Santa Fe Demon self..................

 And a totally Far Out time was had by all!!!!.......................................


So ROCK ON!! KEEP THE FAITH! AND TUNE IN, TURN ON, AND DROP OUT!!!..........

 THE CAPSHAWS' 22ND ANNIVERSARY.....

When it's a girl's anniversary, she feels like a Queen......


 And likewise, a fellow feels just like a king after twenty two years of wedded bliss....

 So tonight, the Fern Room beckons.........

 In the most romantic corner of the garden.......

 With a table setting fit for a King.....

 Because that's how Dwight feels today......

 Even though the dinner fare is our usual weekly take-out from La Choza............

 "Good God, WHAT are they up to now?"..............

 "This is even embarrassing to US, and we're DOGS"................

 "I toast to thee, My Love".......................

 "And right back at you, My Liege".............

 "I can't take anymore of this--I'm going to sleep"...............

"
 So "Good bye" to our romantic rendezvous...........

And "Hello" to many more years of  happiness and wedded bliss.............AND A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL CAPSHAWS!

AT LONG LAST....SUMMER!

 As summer arrives in Santa Fe, the peonies are blooming......

 The Bienvenidos gang is manning the information booth......

 Arlene is doing her civic duty manning the early voting polls............

 Dwight is sharing an early morning coffee with his beloved........


 I meant ME, but Winston thinks it's HIM.......

 The iris are blooming, this one is named Descanso, I planted it in honor of Josephine, my godmother......

 And the roses are sending their sweet scents the way of the goddess Diana..........

 So, I think it might be time for the first backyard luncheon of the season......

 So, I set a festive and colorful table.....

And get plenty of beer for those discriminating Montoyas.........

And other cherished friends........

 I have a very comely Baby Sister.....

 And a mother with astonishing things to say..........

 Mei Toy is cautious about guests........

 Frannie even makes it on her lunch hour.......

 And Artie is "baching" it while his wifey is gallivanting in Paris.........

 Solange LOVES guests...........

 Karen "Vogueing" it.............

 So, now that the beautiful world of summer is entreating you to come outside...............

Invite a few congenial souls to dine al fresco and......A GOOD TIME WILL BE HAD BY ALL!
