Dressing the Part
I don't think I could ever go to a convention for an toy / action figure and dress up. It is just over the top and ridiculous and sad.

On Sunday I went ahead and bottled about half of the brew. I sanitized 24 bottles and filled the up, racking the remainder over 2 cans of Oregon raspberries in heavy syrup. I hadn't planned on using the ones in the syrup, but that's what Sharon bought and it should work fine. I also wanted to start a test batch of Apple Raspberry Cider. I had 4 gallons of Tree Top apple juice sitting in the garage for when I was ready to bottle my first batch. That may be soon, but in the meantime I though I would do this test batch. Plus I needed some AJ to baste the pork butt I was smoking so I broke into one of these and used the extra to fill up a glass gallon container I had. I dumped in most of the syrup from one of the cans and some of the fruit along with my yeast and placed it in my fermentation chiller.
Mary is really into playing with her sister. Whenever Rachel wakes up from a nap, she wants to run upstairs and get her up. She is starting to do a real good job of interacting with her, and helping us entertain Rachel as you can see from this video.
