A singular judge in Iowa makes my day. . .

Judge strikes down Iowa's same-sex marriage law

DES MOINES, Iowa - A Polk County judge on Thursday struck down Iowa's law banning gay marriage and ordered the county recorder to permit gay and lesbian couples to marry.

Less than two hours after word of the ruling was publicized, two Des Moines men applied at the Polk County recorder's office for a marriage license, and for the first time the application was accepted. The process of granting a license to marry in Iowa takes three days.

Off to the East Coast!

Tommorow we will be headed to the East Coast to see family and friends.

We are going to drive through the night with Flopper's dear Friend Mandy and should arrive in Centallia Pennsylvania at 2 or 3 in the afternoon. I'm looking forward to seeing my family (especially my two little neices) and my friends from high school amny of whom still live in that area.

We'll go to Knoebels on Saturday (Easily my favourite amusemnt park) and then head down to Philadelphia that night to see Fred and lodge in the rectory.
Mandy really wants to see the historical parts of Philadelphia so they'll have Sunday to do that and I'll hang out with Fred and kvetchas I am wont to do.

Monday it's off to DC to see all of our friends there. I"m looking foward to Faeries on Mondaynight and getting a haircut form David my stylist whom I sorely miss. Oh and the food I am really looking forward to the food. We'll be in DC until Thursday around noon.

Eli and George playing

George is Eli's Friend next door. He and Eli like to wrestle and Eli almost always gets pinned.

It's terribly cute.


Pictures and Poultry from The Sherburne County Fair

So we went to the county fair across the river with our dear friend Dan and his friend Patrick. We encountered the entire gay population of Saint Closet.

I of course was interested in the excursion as a cultural experience but seeing as it is rude to take pictures of people I instead took pictures of poultry.

Polish Howdans.

Booted Pigeons . (priest is the name of the breed I think)

A pretty little Bantam rooster.

And an assortment of other fowl; all brought to you by the 4-H.

I also went to my first cow auction. It was fascinating and somewhat sad but unfortunately the camera was not working at the time so no pictures of cows.

I did get a few pictures of the local sports club exhibit though. Is it conservation if it is done by Republicans?

Fish; it's like a Chinese Restaurant but with more deep fried food

Minnesota is odd.
