If you're that close, you might enjoy dragging the friends down to Escondido for my SIL Garrett's Halloween display. They might even recall - they used to live in Temecula and his pirate ship and dragon displays made the local Temecula paper those years.

I generally play the part of Chief Cat Herder and Baby Wrangler. The baby may not need wrangling this year, but you never know. The cats will still be totally annoyed at all the uproar.


Selma...I could not find any information on that event. Do you have any details? time/place etc. Sounds like fun. Usually on Halloween we drink a lot of wine and then use power tools and knives to carve pumpkins. :rofl:

Event is Halloween. Venue is their front yard. You know how some people get all over-the-top and cause power grid failure with the Christmas yard displays? Garrett does Halloween, instead. It's quite impressive, and there is candy. The PiqOTenors have attended, when Altoid was much shorter...

Wine and power tools? Very Tim Allen-ish, yes? More Power! More Power! More Merlot!

There was a gathering, at Fat Ivor's of the Ribs, last night. Many folks took photos.
Great piles of bare ribs were generated. Dai's son took the prize.

Also worthy of note, it was the largest gathering of b.com-ites to date, AFAIK.

There was imbibing. And escargot.
A good time was by all.

Did OT mention Mrs BigJon and KitKat/lilBit were present, as well as son-of-Dai ?

He mentioned Son-of-Dai, but I don't think there was mention of other non-members of the B.com group.

I left California in 1986, vowing never to return (a vow I've broken at least four times since, having returned there on business).

My family would like to travel westward, though. So I many have to return yet again at some point. Perhaps I can persuade them that Fat Ivor's is a necessary stop there. I'd have to visit the Ronaldus Maximus Shrine (a.k.a. Presidential Library) and the Nixon Home and Library if I go there, so we would be in the general area...

The imbibing saved my attitude, if not my life. There had been rain, and several induhviduals on the road had celebrated by diving their vehicles into ditches and up into the iceplant. I was fairly cranky until the server brought my Irish coffee, at which time I improved.

The escargot are worthy of mention. They were not menu items, but a live mollusc ranch out back of the restaurant - Lilbit and Altoid were responsible for the venture. There was an attempt to distract the girls with coldlight adornments...

I need to acquaint Altoid with colored threads, waste canvas, aida cloth. This child needs hobbies, and I'm always on the lookout for another potential threadhandler. :twisted:

It was even a paying venture . . .

Much fun was had by all. Mrs. Big said, "They seemed like a nice bunch". :lol:

I may finally get a shot at Fat Ivors during Halloween weekend. We'll be with our Temecula friends and I think I have finally beaten them in to submission about going there. Not sure which night just yet...

It would never happen. I'm too cheap to use more than one boxful.

A very good night indeed. I can endorse O.T.'s opinion of the ribs, though I'm afraid it's been a long time since I could rival my son's capacity.

Ahem. Upcoming opportunity, most particularly for OTs siblingesses. Somebody should give them a heads-up.

It's called a "Quilt Run". One acquires a "passport" at one's first quilt shop stop, and gets it annotated at the later stops, and turns it in for the prize drawing at the last stop. Yes, prizes. Meantime, one has visited a whole bunch of quilt shops (there are sixteen this year and four or five of them are new to me!) and fondled much fabric. It is either a wonderful or a dreadful way to spend one's spare time for a whole week. Depends on your personal hobbies and preferences, you see.

Details here: http://www.cruisinquilters.com/html/

You will note that Stop #4 is in Valley Center. Fat Ivor's is in Valley Center. Valley Center is VERY SMALL. Nowhere in Valley Center is very far from anywhere else in Valley Center. Just sayin'...

on my way to Temecula later in this day (via Sandy Eggo). Once again we're enjoying the weekend with wine group friends. A trip to Fat Ivors is being planned.
