Seth and I were talking last night and somehow I ended up telling him the story of my one and only ride in a limousine. Here are the pictures of that event.
Partway through midterm week in the Fall of 1987, one of my neighbors decided that she simply had to go visit her boyfriend in Longmont. She didn't have a car so she shopped around for an alternative mode of transportation. It turned out that it would be cheaper to hire a limo than to take a taxi. It didn't hurt that the limo was also a lot more fun. Before she headed out to Longmont, a bunch of us piled into the limo for a short study break.
Angela, Ronda and I.

I had thought that eventually Ryan and James would lose interest in their little rodent friends.Apparently I was wrong. It's been seven months and they are more enamoured than ever.

In 1989 I was a full time student at Colorado State University. I lived in Fort Collins but all my weekends were spent at my friend Trisha's farm in Wellington. Trisha's family lived on forty acres and owned nearly that many Arabian horses. The old grey mare in the first two pictures was Trisha's favorite--NBD Peace.

James wasn't the only Buxton who celebrated a birthday recently. Abbie turned sixteen a couple weeks ago. She didn't have a party, but she did enjoy her homemade chicken and oatmeal birthday cake.Mmmm, mmmm. That cake was plate lickin' good.

James' eighth birthday party was held this past Saturday at a nearby bowling alley.Sometimes last really is best!
This was not just bowling, but "Cosmic Bowling." Most of the lighting was provided by disco balls.March 2010
Since James was the birthday boy, he got to bowl first.
James in action.
Ryan and Nate waiting at the ball return.
Ryan's victory dance after bowling a strike.
James and Javier sharing funny anecdotes.
"Back-up" guest, Nate.
Javier, Ryan, James, Nate and Yesi all watch as Javier's ball rolls slowly down the lane. Jozsh had lost interest in the game by this point and was patiently waiting on the food.
