Up on the roof


Guess who’s here?


Last night, we were walking around Wash Park, and looked to our right to see… a roof-top band!

They noticed us taking their picture, and yelled for us to come up.

Yes.  They yelled for us to let ourselves in through the front door, go down the hall to the staircase, climb to the attic, and then clamber out the window and up to the roof.

And thanks to my new-found Spiderman climbing skills discovered on Mt. Evans this weekend…

… well.  Needless to say, we bonded.

Yes, I played the trumpet.  No, I don’t know whose lips have been on that thing.  But how could I resist?  It was a real live HOOTENANNY.

    You two are UHHH-MAZZZING. And I am not sure which of these fine shirtless mauraders I have a bigger crush on: blue-golf-ball-in-the-mouth-guy or intense-guitar-wielding-shusher? SO MUCH TO CONSIDER.

    Question: Who took the picture of YOU all up on the roof, hmm? And did you subsequently invite him/her over to join the rooftop hootenanny???

    Too cute. I love it. Especially the fact that Greta chose to do a lunge pose holding (natch) water glasses… ???

    Oh – and p.s. – of COURSE these hot gentlemen invited you up! You two are beautifully hot yourselves.

    You live a beautifully adventurous life, Hooten Annie Parsons. Thanks for sharing it with us!

    The photo was taken by my camera’s excellent self-timer, after being carefully positioned on the chimney.

    The water glasses are indeed filled with water and were seized in haste after no more instruments were found in near proximity.

    Loved this moment. :)

    The second photo is pure awesome. The first photo is a close second.

    I think that covers it.

    Two things I love about these photos (besides the fact that they’re basically constructed from amazingness):

    1. In the first photo, everyone has their shirts on. Then, in the second one, the shirts are gone (except for the girls).

    2. I love the fact that it looks like a beer bottle is growing out of Greta’s head.
