Looking for a pot of gold....

Today I am going to the Irish Festival with the crew. It is not a faire, but we still dress out. We get to see one of my favorite bands BROTHER. They are different because use bagpipes and a didgeridoo along with drums and a guitar to create an incredible sound. Since the festival is about Irish heritage I found these great pics on flickr taken by Diversy Harbor to get me in the mood.....

JD / Public Enemies News

It seems that Marcella and Becky has their moment with JD early this morning..... I hope that Vicky, Osh and Streetwiser we able to get their moment again as well.... I look forward to hearing from them and seeing pics etc....

Filming is getting ready to start wrapping up.... it has been a blast keeping up with things...

Minxie YOU HAVE MAIL!!!!

We did meet Jd this morning at around 3:30am. He didn't stick around too long, but Osh managed to get 3 autogrpahs.....me nada.

I didn't ask for one. I asked to take a photo with him, to which I was denied. I will be putting up a blog very shortly about it.

vicky

~Minxie~ said...

Vix.... you have mail back!!!!

My pleasure love!!!! Thanks for letting me do that for you!!!!

Sorry you were denied.... doesnt JD know who you are? =0P

Glad you all are home safe and sound!! According to Osh's blog, sounds like it was an adventure!

I will be here for a little while longer, then I am off.....

~Minxie~ said...

Ok.... I am off to Ireland.... ok... well close enough anyway....

You all have a great day!!!

-Sir Jack said...

Minxie--I hope you had fun with the Irish today!! How was the music love?

Blazn-- way to go!! JD jackpot, alright!!

Lotus--*waves a white flag & smiles*
I'll stop back later to see if you are wearing your aloha outfit.

Blaznfire911 said...

Hello all!

I am around, and just popped in to say hello!

I am working on some more pics for my blog!

Anyone around at all?

vic

-Sir Jack said...

Hi Vixy!! I'll go check your blog for the pix...

Blaznfire911 said...

Hiya jack!

I was just uploading some more pics...so go back and check it in a bit LOL

How was your day?

I am flippin exhausted!!!!!

-Sir Jack said...

Vix- I just came back from seeing the new pix on your blog, they look great love! Looks like you had a great time.

I've been gettin ready for my quick trip up north, leave tomorrow and come back in the evening. Then I have to drive back up on Friday---same thing.

I'll wager you're completed drained!! What a night!!

Blaznfire911 said...

Hee hee. I wore that shirt just for you!!!!

You better come next time we go!

I took a little nap, so i am ready to go for a bit longer.

Osh was too funny with that bug spray!!!

So who's going with you on your vacay?

Blaznfire911 said...

HA! THe girl from the Chilean website that posted my pics left me a message on my blog!! HOW COOL!

-Sir Jack said...

Blazn--I can almost taste the bug spray in me own mouth... going by the look on Osh's face. WTFF

Vaca??--well, it's really not a vacation for me...I've got to drop off my DS and pick him up later in the week. I might go up a day or two early with my love and get some time in up there before we pick him up. There are some really beautiful spots up there!

-Sir Jack said...

The Chilean girl-- that WAS cool. Very nice of her to leave a message.

I just watched the video of the M&G that Michelle put up today. I really like how it's 4 min. long. Gives one a good perspective of the meeters and the greeters. LMAO JD is genuinely a good person! We need more like him on this planet.

Thanks again about the ping-guin... maybe one of these Kurth Days I'll come with you. *smiles*

Blaznfire911 said...

Yes there are! I love ER and the northwoods! Are you going to see al Capone's house? It is REALLY COOL!!! It's a bit of a drive from Eagle River, but well worth it since your up there!

The bug spray cost $8, and Evan forgot it at the Kurth!! LOL The bugs were bad, and yes....Osh had the funniest face on I've seen in a while! She cracks me up!

Blaznfire911 said...

I haven't watched the video yet, as my comp is acting all sorts of dumb! I will hopefully see it tomorrow.

people in chicago were NOT as nice as WI!!! It was a HUGE eye opener for me....what that man has to deal with! If you culd have seen the amount of people that chased him down the road.....you would have felt as embarrased as me.....and I wasn't even doing the chasing!!! I was being a good little girl, and patiently waiting!

-Sir Jack said...

When you compare the distance from where I drive to ER and ER to Capone's---eh, that's spittin' distance love. I'd like to head up to Madeline Island and that area too. I haven't seen Lake Superior yet...I hear it's a beaut.

who'sinmybasement? said...

Sir Jack,

I didn't know I was going with you!?! Noone Told Me.

:runs upstairs to pack bag: (mostly rum bottles)

Blaznfire911 said...

LOL WHOS!!!!!! I thought you might say that!

have you been to Al Capone's hideout before Jack? If not, i could tell you where it is if you wanna go! i am sooooo glad I did when I was up there!

-Sir Jack said...

Whoosy--LMFAO!!

Vix--no, I've never been there...tell me more :) What did you like about it?

Blaznfire911 said...

Well first you take a long drive down this wooded lane till you get to the gates! Then when you pull in there is a huge lake behind the house....that's where they say people went to "sleep with the fishes!" If you get my drift!

You get to take a tour of the house, with all these cool little people in it depicting what life wa like when Capone lived there. Then you go out into the barn, and see his old cars, and watch a moving video (like a play) of the St Valentine's day massacare.

They also have other buildings on the premesis like a watch tower, jail cell, and a bunch of other wierd things.

You can't take pictures inside the buildings, but you can on the outside.

Gimmie a min and I will look for the website!

vicky

Blaznfire911 said...

http://www.alcaponehideout.com/

-Sir Jack said...

Blazn'- "sleep with the fishes" AND "wearing their cement shoes" LOL

who'sinmybasement? said...

Sir,

Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands are really neat! Actually Lake Superior is great everywhere I've been. More so than Lake Michigan, it seems Superior is our inland sea. Just a feeling I've had when there. As far as I'm concerned its a MUST SEE (Sea). LOL

-Sir Jack said...

The Hideout sounds pretty cool, we'll have to check that out. Thanks! Little Bo's not far from that either, right?

Blaznfire911 said...

LOL JACK! When I was there, it was creepy to think that people might be buried at the bottom of the lake. i think I remember someone saying that they "dragged" the lake in search of bodies, but never found anything.

They did find some old cars though, and other wierd items.

Blaznfire911 said...

No I don't think it is too far. When I went to Minocqua, it took about an hour to get to the hideout from there. Before you go, I would call them to make sure if they are open or not. They had some pretty wierd schedules.

who'sinmybasement? said...

Vix,
Great seeing you last night! My Who'ses were a bit disappointed but they got over it. I would have let them go with you and Osh...but that curfew thingee...good call. They do take that seriously in Chi town.

Blaznfire911 said...

I'd like to go to little bo as well. Maybe next time we are there I will have to check that out

-Sir Jack said...

You know that show on the Travel Channel...Most Haunted places? I wonder if they've ever gone to the Hideout? OR its lake? LOL

Whoosy, I love Lake Michigan, I'm sure now that I'll love Lake Superior even more! Thanks mate!

Blaznfire911 said...

Hello whos!

yes. Well i thought about that after they said they were coming. I remembered the last time JD was in Chicago, and would not come out bc too many people were breaking curfew.

it's a good thing they didn't come. It was NUTS! I lost Osh and evan twice. I would have hated it if we lost your girls as well!

Plus, some of the crew mentioned that people needed to leave if they were not accompanied by their parents, so that was good that they didn't come.

i felt bad for them, and I hope they aren't too dissapointed.

vicky

-Sir Jack said...

So did the curfew not apply to Evan because Osh was there? I'm not familar with curfew crap. *smiles*

Blaznfire911 said...

Now THAT would be a show to see! I would love to go back up there!

Most haunted places in Wisconsin LOL!!!

Al Capone also has a house that is 15 minutes from me in Brookfield. My friend lives on the same street.....strangley enough the street is called.....Capone Drive LOL

Blaznfire911 said...

No, Evan was fine. But there were a lot of kids there.....like 4-5 year olds. I was upset that the parents would keep kids out that young at 4am!

who'sinmybasement? said...

Mates,

I be head'n fer me berth...have to rest up fer me travels tomorrow with Sir Jack. Arr...what time we be leav'n? LOL

Good Night All!

-Sir Jack said...

LMAO, have a g'night love! I'm/we're leaving around 10am I hope.

Blaznfire911 said...

Good night Who's!

What day are you coming back Jack?

-Sir Jack said...

G'night whoosy!!

Vix--I'll be back tomorrow night late. I'll probably check out the Hideout and Little Bo on Wed or Thurs when we go back up. Make sense?

Have a great Sunday you two!!

Blaznfire911 said...

Aww good night Jack! Minxie is MIA....prob still out at the faire!

HAVE A GREAT TIME!!!!!!

Oh, and i just wacthed Peg's video.....it is amazing!

vicky

Blaznfire911 said...

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo Isee how it goes Sir Jack....PEC conversation is much mor einteresting than me. Hmmmmmm....I see how it goes.

-Sir Jack said...

No no no, Vixen!! I thought you were winding down and had left love!!

I rarely "talk" there anymore and I had a question for Michelle--who I hardly see on the blog.

Hey, I saw you there too. Whattsup with that? *smiles* G'night love!!

Blaznfire911 said...

I posted tehre bc you said you were done LMAO!

It's ok...I see how it is.


Night to you too jack!

I'll be around if anyone feels like chatting!

vicky

Lotus said...

Lotus--*waves a white flag & smiles*

Sir Jack, you still there? Not that I'm trying to get a bead on you, or anything! :D

Lotus said...

Hi, Blazn! (waves) Sounds like you had another awesome time last night! Any idea how much filming is left?

-Sir Jack said...

Vix, did you read last night's blog? Lotus, went a little "aloha" on me.
I think she took tonight off to recover. LOL

-Sir Jack said...

Whoa, Lotus, how are you feeling tonight love?

Blaznfire911 said...

LOL Jack I saw that!

HIYA LOTUS! Speak of the devil...I mean angel....

We had a great time last night, despite some bad instances.

I know I will get some "back talk" from people about what I said on my blog, but hey....I call it as I see it!
LOL

Lotus said...

I'm jsut peachy, Jack! And you? I've been busy cleaning all day, and then went out to a bar for a few drinks! I haven't done that in ages!

Now that I'm mellow, I might just let you live.

-Sir Jack said...

I'm doing good Lotus. I'm glad you got to do more cleaning today. Mellow and will let me live?...oh good...

Blaznfire911 said...

Jack went off talking to Michelle and Rod, and left me here all by myself!!!

You might want to reconsider your last comment Lotus LOL

Lotus said...

Blazn, you mean about letting him live? Oh, the world is full of scurvy dogs. One more or less isn't gonna matter much. :)

Blaznfire911 said...

Yes, that comment LOL!

I was not interesting enough for him LMAO

~Minxie~ said...

Hey all.... I'm BAAAAAAACK!!!!!
*tee hee* everyone having fun?
Vix... you get any sleep? Thanks! Its was great chatting with you today!!! Love your accent~ :)

-Sir Jack said...

Well, I've got to get up early in the morning to pack (and run). Will you two be alright here by yourselves?

Blaznfire911 said...

MINXIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome home! Did you have a good time???

it was great to talk to you too!!!

Blaznfire911 said...

We'll be fine now that Minxie is here!

Good night jack...maybe.....I think you are lurking

-Sir Jack said...

Hi Minxie, now there's three of you. How nice!!

Blaznfire911 said...

Oh and I managed to get 6 hours sleep this afternoon, but my poor little eyes are burning like the dickens!!

And I have a tummy ache....YUCK!

~Minxie~ said...

Hello and good night Jack!!! LOL... wait til you hear what I found out about the Mother of Pearl today!!!!

Hey Vix..... got some great pics today....

-Sir Jack said...

Vix, I'm thinking, slowly not lurking. My typing is getting goofier as I get more sleepy love!

Lotus said...

Blazn, you guys were very brave to go to Chicago at night! Daytime is bad enough. I used ot go visits relatives there almost every summer, and the last time I visited them actually in the inner city was when I returned from my tour in Korea. So, like 29 years ago. There was a drive by shooting; shot in their front door/glass. They moved to a suburb after that!

~Minxie~ said...

ah poor Vix.... maybe you need some chocolate tea.... ;)

Blaznfire911 said...

There were two drive by shootings last night in Chicago! One was very close to base camp. I am just glad no one got hurt!

jack....you always speak the truth, and are so kind with your words....no matter how tired you get!

Minx- I can't wait to see the pics!

Blaznfire911 said...

Funny you mention it! I have the kettle on right now!

-Sir Jack said...

Mother of Pearl? More comments about wreckage I assume...

Lotus said...

Good night, Sir Jack. I thought you were leaving?

Lotus said...

Hi MInxie! Glad to see you. Are you all Irish now? Did you have fun? Hope so!

-Sir Jack said...

Yes, I'm leaving love, I just didn't want to do it abruptly and ruffle anyone's feathers.

~Minxie~ said...

Hello Lotus love... glad you are feeling mellow ..... I need to get a pic of you so that I can take you with me on my adventures as well. :)

Oh yes, I have very interesting news about the Mother of Pearl.... and eveidence that the Ping-guins WERE involved.... but alas.... they no longer have your beloved ship.....

~Minxie~ said...

Yes, we had a blast.... Brother was GREAT!!! Got to dance with Angus and his bagpipes.....

Blaznfire911 said...

my feathers are ruffled!

Blaznfire911 said...

YAY Minx! Did you watch both performances?

-Sir Jack said...

Lotus has a whole smorgasbord of pix to choose from Minxie, my love. *smiles*

Ok, I give, who has me ship?

Lotus said...

Blazn, when did you get feathers?

Lotus said...

Yea, where's his ship? My friends, the chinstraps, say they don't know anything about it!

Blaznfire911 said...

I started growing feathers about an hour ago! LOL

Blaznfire911 said...

Oh and Minxie! When you called me today, I want to apologize for eating my luch on the phone LOL

I don't normally do that, but I was sooooooo hungry!

Lotus said...

Well, there is a scientific theory that suggests that humans have evolved from birds. Just throwing that out there!

-Sir Jack said...

When you get a chance, Minxie you leave me a post about on me blog.
G'night loves.

~Minxie~ said...

Yes... we saw both performances.... and had a "show" with the first one... seems a gal's kilt was little TOO short and when she would swing her hips, she was mooning the entire audience!!! She was totally unaware.... and it wasnt like she was a model or anything.... it was quite scary really =oP

Jack... you will have to wait for the blog to find out what happened to your beloved ship....sorry, love just too many clues to filter thru to give you the info just yet....

Lotus said...

Good night, jack! Sleep well luv.

~Minxie~ said...

Good night Jack.... fair winds in yer sails tomorrow.....!!!

Vix, no worries love... I didnt even know you were until you said something.... its all good!!!

Blaznfire911 said...

LMAO LOTUS!!!!! Is that why I like eggs so much????

Minx WTFF!!!!! There's nothing better than a short kilt!

Blaznfire911 said...

LOl minx....well I giess it is a british thing....my mum always said...don't talk with your mouth full

~Minxie~ said...

oh the ping guins definately had something to do with the disappearance of the Pearl.... but they no longer have control of her.... and I have proof of that!

Blaznfire911 said...

*Still laughing at the short kilt*

Blaznfire911 said...

Poor Mother of Peal....and poor jack...he is out of town for awhile, and wont get to see it tomorrow I don't think

~Minxie~ said...

Lotus, that is a pretty scary theory you got there!!!!

~Minxie~ said...

Oh yeah, wait til you see the pics!!! LMAO!!! I think the full moon was out during the DAY!!!! LOL

~Minxie~ said...

OH damn... thats right .... LOL... he will have to wait for the info....

Blaznfire911 said...

Speaking of full moon...it was a bit scary looking last night. It was very low in the sky at about midnight, and totally orange/red. I couldn't help thinking about the movie practical magick, when they were talking about "blood on the moon"

It was really lcoudy, with some lightning too....so it made it look even more wierd! Like a harvest moon. But i thought those only happened in fall.

it did clear up as the moon got higher in the sky, and it turned into it's usual color....but I wish I would have snapped a pic of it when it was all redish!

~Minxie~ said...

Wow, that sounds really cool looking... would have rather seen that than the moon I saw today...

Blaznfire911 said...

Minxie You got mail!

Lotus said...

Blazn, that would have been a great picture of the moon! Too bad.

Blaznfire911 said...

What moon did you see today?

About 3 nights ago, the full moon was out during the day. i have a pic of that, although it's not very good. Will email it to you if you want it.

Blaznfire911 said...

To tell you the truth guys..... I was a bit scared to take the picture. i was just in awe looking at it, and we were driving at the time.

I was fascinated, and couldn't turn away from it. At the same time, I just couldn't reach for my camera....it was so wierd!

Lotus said...

Well, ladies, I'm going to say goodnight! I have to go take a shower. I smell like smoke from the bar, and just can't handle that! Have a great day tomorrow. Talk to you then! NIGHT!

~Minxie~ said...

LOL... Vix! The moon today was the gal in the kilt.....LOL

~Minxie~ said...

Good night Lotus!!!! Sleep well!!!
Have a wonderful Sunday!

Blaznfire911 said...

Night Lotus!

LMAO MInx...I get it now!

What's the link to IMDB?

shakenbsis said...

shakenbsis said...

Blaznfire911 said...

~Minxie~ said...

Good Morning.... I will be putting the blog up at some point today.... just moving slow and going thru 150+ pics from yesterday....

Hope you all are having a great Sunday!!! Another day of triple digits here..... ick!

Blaznfire911 said...

Hello Minxie!
