Anatomy of a Cape Weekend

  My wife and I went down to Cape Cod this weekend.  The weather was beautiful, not a cloud in the sky the whole weekend.  I took these pictures and video on my new iPhone 3GS.  As you can see we're getting pretty good at having a great Cape weekend. 
  Also on this trip but not shown are: three hours of beachin' at Chapoquoit Beach, biking on the Shining Sea Bikeway, shopping in downtown Falmouth, dinner at the Chapoquoit Grille (cheesey toasted garlic bread, New York strip, and key lime pie), iced coffee at Coffee Obsession and Starbucks, soft serve ice cream at DQ, two church services on Sunday, and a toasting marshmallows on a big campfire at dusk.

 Lobster Roll and Stuffed Quahogs at Raw Bar in Mashpee.  There's about three lobsters worth of lobster in that roll.

 Lobster (again!) with "how to eat a lobster plate".

 A ride in Uncle Paul's '62 CJ-5.

Ice cream with freshly rolled waffle cones at The Somerset Creamery.  That's my Blueberry Pie ice cream on the right.  It had pie crust in it and it was the BOMB!

A nice sunset at Chapoquoit Beach

And the ride coming back from Stop & Shop to get lobsters in the CJ-5

Mad Men Auction on Ebay

Do you like Mad Men?  There is a Mad Men auction on ebay right now.  Since Sterling Cooper has dissolved and moved to a new office, you can have a the old office of Mad Men stuff and go completely mad in your new pad.  You can bid on a walk-on role and you can even have Don Draper's drapes.

Win a free bow tie

Ellie Laveer at The Cordial Churchman is having a "Win a free bow tie" contest.  The ties are handmade and homemade.  Just leave a comment to enter the contest and a chance to win a free bow tie.

I'm pulling for "The Hound", a wool houndstooth which looks to be a great Fall/Winter bow tie.

Bow Tie - Round 2

This is my second time wearing a bow tie (first time was back in April).  I got this tie at An Affordable Wardrobe's Top Shelf Flea.  The tie itself is a handmade madras bow tie from The Cordial Churchman

There's a doctor in the building at work who has a "friendy mutton chops" beard and wears a bow tie everyday.  I happened to walk by him today in the hall and we gave each other a head nod as to say "Yes, we may look like knuckelheads with our bow ties but we are also pretty damn awesome because we can pull it off."  We said all that in a nod, it was powerful.
