Pictures...

Oh- before I upload some pics... When you go to your pride or your next public summer gathering-- I will share with you my new favorite game...Pride Pairs! While people watching.. it was fascinating to watch the couples walk by and figure out what they had in common... there is ALWAYS one thing.. if is the same brand/style of shoes...to their hair....to the style of their shirt... there is SOMETHING.This was my favorite couple:





Of Course I insisted that Mic and I are NOTHING like this... then I looked down.. same Keens... same bracelet... matching necklace.

shit.

we are.

More pics...

The first two were a couple of floats from the parade..

then some friends.. Mic, Brenda, Mo, Rebecca, Greg and Wendy.... then a cute one of Mo and Greg...

It is taking me for EVER to upload pics. I use picassa and I dislike it a LOT. Anyone else use anything that they like? Let me know...(that is a free download or something) I want to be able to simply re size pics.

Holly and I play that game too! We are also a pride pair as we share the same hair coloring. LOL That's the only thing tho...

Thank you for sharing the pics... we should make it a point to go there next year for pride. It looks like fun!

It is fun-- these pictures aren't SHOWING the fun.. but, I have those. Yanno.. dancing around acting a fool... If I can figure out how to re-size things.. you could see those, too!

Corrine.. YES! Lots of straight people. Cute story.. this one woman was walking down the way with a t-shirt on that said.. "I Support My Gay Brother" and a friend of mine went up to her and said.. "how great are YOU?!" and the woman broke down into tears and said.. she can't BELIEVE how many people have stopped to talk to her about her t-shirt.. hugging her, thanking her, telling her how lucky her brother is.. things like that.

Milwaukee has a TON of festivals... ethnic and music all at the same festival grounds (Summerfest Grounds) .. Pride kicks it off... and there are a lot of straight people who go to kick off the festival season, too!

I LOVE PRIDE WEEKENDS!
This looked fun and I'm totally playing that game from now on.
I wonder what Bec and I have in common?

No No No! The best game is "spot the celebrity" I saw Parez Hilton and Elton John!

We keep an eye out, too, but perhaps not in such a friendly way. We point out 'field trippers' to each other - couples who are dressed IDENTICALLY. This happens a lot more than one would guess.
