Maggotx Catch-Up Post from the Last Few Weeks.....

It's Field Hockey Season..!!!!....so Maggotx and the Missus have been visiting the Field Hockey Twins at their various Venues throughout th East Coast.... This has diluted playing time from Disc Golf as well as THE BLOG.....So therefore the need for the Ketchup post....So....Without further ado......here is what I have been up to...

Visited Salisbury MD for a Field Hockey Invitational. In between games visited the very nice Schumaker Pond DG Course.  This is a very nicely constructed compact course,  with a pond on one side and trees throughout.  However, you need to watch out for kids playing in the park.  Really nice to play when nobody is around.

Below; a photo showing the multiple basket layout....very nice



A day off on Saturday AFTER Field Hockey to see the Extremely Lovely and Talented Lisa Bouchelle at the Record Collector in Borderntown NJ.:




Then this last weekend we visited Washington DC for a Georgetown game and visited the sites.  We were lucky to get a beautiful club room at the Sheraton in Arlington VA, with a GREAT view of the DC area....check out the pics below....

View from the Roof-deck Pool...Pentagon and Air Force Memorial on right Washington Monument on Left

View of the Pentagon and the Air Force Memorial  from the Hotel


Mr and Mrs X in front of the present Obama residence...

 and Visiting with the Secret Service...

Miscellaneous Mrs X and The Monument Photos

While in Washington we were lucky enough to be at the Progressive One nation Unionized Rally...with all the Top Progs in the counrty....why even the Socialist Party was there....

A very Large Massing of Progressives......
 

Some Progressive Signage....

Hell...even Mrs X joined in the Progressiveness.....

 The "MAN"...Keeping an Eye on the Progressives...I counted 17 different Antennas...(note the Periscope)


My favorite sign at the Washington Monument....So I guess bringing Guns, knives, mace and a Wolverine in a Baby stroller is way out of the question....




All in all A very Exciting time in Washington with Regular Citizens Voicing their Concerns....True Democracy in Action.....!!!!!!

Grrreat to get the Blog updated. I was wondering whether or not to have my friends with the cooooool, well-equipped-for-any-occasion Suburbans track the MX down! Looks like the X's had a truly fun filled, event-packed visit to our nation's Capitol! And, as the bruhthah of the Mrs. X, I always knew that she was and is Progressive....she married Mr. X, after all!!!!

Wow, looks like you guys had a great time.

What an amazing vehicle. Only the US government could afford and choose to purchase something like that.

I especially like the view of the Pentagon. Really amazing to see such a huge building from that height. Hmm...you ever notice how it's kinda shaped like a basket? You should get giant disc golf going.

hey! nice 'ketchup' post haha....looks like you guys had a great time!! Mrs. X looks giant with the washington monument one second, and then the next she shrinks and is so tiny!! Glad that you enjoyed your visit and the hockey gamess!

Errrr Ahhhh Maaaaahhhhk said...

WOW Rama!!!! "Con-sep-seeeeohn" is devoted! Perhaps she should be pictured in the OED next to perseverance! Do you think we should start a campaign to get her into a used CSV or NERV (I love the acronyms...Covert Surveillance Vehicle ((yet it is clearly very visible!)) and Networked Emergency Response Vehicle) to replace that cold, damp tent? She has certainly earned it! I think that I'd like a Sentinel for my next road trip to Jersey...I'd get great reception to any station I chose!! I'd probably be able to listen to conversations taking place at the MX compound from here!!!

Happy Birthday Maggot!!!!!!

Do you remember she used to sing for Mastermind? I hope you are having a great Birthday!!

OMG! That girls voice annoyed me! Please never post her music again, the rambling soliloquy set to music was a less interesting version of a Dar Williams song.
I love the pics of the various Disc Golf courses that you've patronized this fall! The next time we hang out I want to go give this sport a whirl! It seems to be far less dangerous then the frisbee related sports I played in college. (yes, at 19 playing frisbee football in the rain on the lawn is a good idea and that bloody arm healed in no time)
Now on to your trip to "Obamaland" (it's like Disney for democrats and Massholes) I love the view from the pool deck! Now to scrub the image of you in a flag print spedo from my mind. The pic of you guys infront of the white house is a really good picture! I like it! Did anyone else notice that in the pic of Mrs. X infront of the secret service car her hand looks like a gun?? Crazy! The one of the top of the Washington Monument could inspire a new religion! Hysterical!!! Ugh! All in all glad you had an amazing fall and got to do so much stuff while traveling around to see the girls play! It was awesome seeing you guys when you were here!
