The Agony of the Feet

As mentioned in the previous blog post, this past weekend included an overnight stay in Reno for us and group of friends.  We had SUCH a great time (as I typed that, a friend just texted me asking me when we were going again) and will have plenty of stories to tell of the trip for years to come  We didn't come home with gambling winnings as we had hoped, but hey, you can't win every time!  Because of the wonderful creation of alcohol, even though almost all of us were losing money, we were happy the whole time.  Some of the guys were drinking this:

Now, I am not much of a beer guy, but that has to be the coolest name for a beer ever!  But still, I'll stick with tequila!  Jess looked amazing (like always), but absolutely destroyed her feet with the heels she wore around the casino and walking out on the town.  By the end of our great trip, her feet were covered in cuts, blisters, and sores.  This was her the next day, poor girl.

Monday was a release for a new Vinylmation series, Furry Friends.  Her feet hurt so much that she had me go on my own.  I am sure that saddened her!  I didn't get the ones I was looking for, but I did luck out and get the rare one (called a chaser).  That one alone made the trip worth it and even though I am not keeping it (I have actually sold it already), it made for an awesome picture!

If we're going to talk about Furry Friends though, nothing compares to the one I picked out a little over 9 years ago.

It really was a GREAT trip! I already want to go again!

Great pictures, as always. I LOVE the one of Leia - she really was a good find, that sweet little dog!

Sounds like a good time...and I LOVE the name of that beer!

I sympathize with Jessica. I wore heels to an event last week and I had sore toes for days, and still sport a nasty cut just below my ankle. High heels da devil.

Those stickers on fruit were made for pet heads, I'm sure of it.

I love that photo of Jessica, although I'm so sorry she had to suffer from all the blisters!
