We welcome the newest member to the America's Own Bar & Grill, Captain Monterrey Jack. A gift from Carol Thompson during her recent visit, he makes a nightly appearance and fuels the "drinking and libations" nightly experienced. The Cap't also demonstrates we are a classy establishment with the $26 dollar bottle of Jameson, a fine Irish Whiskey. No cheap plastic bottles of Vodka allowed in our midst (it is made from Communism anyways).
Mike and Carolyn Rice were kind enough to provide me with a jacket for a second wardrobe costume. Mike wore the jacket when he worked cats in the past and I will now wear it in the steel arena as well. Very graciously, Nikki altered it for me to fit for size and removed the sleeves as well to make it into a vest. She worked many hours over days to complete it and I debuted the costume yesterday.
We also would like to extend a welcome to the newest member of the McCoy Animal Stable, Sophie! Casey took his life into his own hands capturing this wild beast, a stray kitten living off scraps at a gas station we stopped at during the jump. He only suffered minor scratches but fortunately his Tetanus booster is up to date. She is Georgia's new pet and is adapting to home life rapidly - cute as a button as well.
To finalize the 'America's Own' theme today, we bring you Raja. I sleep five feet from the cats at night - literally. This is the view from my living quarters in the tiger trailer. Raja was checking out the barbeque happenings outside the door. That's right, he has a rooom with a view, as do I.
