Circus Mexicus

Greetings amigos, I am going on vacation to a little place called Mexico. Mrs. Shife and I are heading down to a town right on the Pacific Ocean called Puerto Penasco or Rocky Point. One of our favorite bands in the whole wide world, Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers (formerly The Refreshments), performs a concert there twice a year and we figured it is our time to do it.

So I will be on the beach for three fabulous days working on my tan, rocking out, destroying my liver, and listening to my wife justify why she needs to go on another shopping spree. It is going to be awesome. Play nicely while I am gone and I will be back Monday with a Mexican hangover and hopefully some cool photos. As Mr. Clyne so eloquently states, "My second home is a third world cantina."

Holey Canolli.

I have a friend flying dwon from caldwell, Idaho today. Hope we can exchange links. Looks like you have a nice sense of humor, or at least articulate it better than me.

Fiona said...

Have fun, drink rediculous amounts of liquor.. Oh and you'll probably want to get a smaller sombrero (SIC?) though.

mrshife said...

Good idea Fiona. The big brain on Mr. Shife isn't that big. I will probably have to switch them to make sure the cash and prizes don't get burned.

Fiona said...

Well I just didn't want to come right out and tell you, but it looks like you've encountered the amazing head-shrinking tribe of the Owhyees and they have done irreversible damage.

mrshife said...

Yes, I believe you are right. My penis is incredibly small but I have ginormous testicles.

Fiona said...

I was referring to your melon, but it sounds like you are pretty well balanced out. Maybe you should bring a banana hammock as a back-up.

mrshife said...

Advantage Fiona. I bow to you.

cher said...

cool have fun! i was in Mexico as a little girl and the only thing I remember is being on my dads shoulders and sticking my tongue out at some begger guy and throwing a grape at him.

sc said...

Have fun. Don't drink the water.

Phats said...

tell the Mrs. to Barter!

the duck said...

That's quite a life you have there amigo. Goof off at work all day and then fly off to another country to accomplish more of the same. Do I sound jealous? That's probably only because I AM.

mrshife said...

Hmmmm, The Duck. Who could you possibly be?

Vince said...

I'm super jealous, have fun.

P.S. Game 2 is Oswalt's

the duck said...

I don't know. It's pretty hush hush and all that you know.

Andraste said...

En-joy! We'll keep an eye on the NLCS from here for you.

SugarHigh said...

I don't wanna go to Mexico no more, more, more
There's a big fat policeman at the door, door, door.
If he grabs you by the collar, boy ya better holla.
I don't wanna go to Mexico no more, more more.
Caio!

Max said...

You boys want to go to MEXIIIIICOOOOOOOOO???

Heh. Have a great time and for God's sakes don't eat the worm. I beg of you, do not eat the worm.

P.S. - Last time I was in Mexico, I saw this big mutha of a Texan do an eight second Tequilia stand. It was awesome.

Beo said...

Have fun, enjoy the sun.:)

Sideshow said...

Have fun. Wish I was going, but I think my employer would frown on a fourth vacation this year.

Repip said...

Give the beach a hug for me and drink many O XX cerva too...have fun hanging out with your wang out!
You and the Mrs. will have a blast...I love the Refreshments so sing on the top of you lungs to the "Boise" song for me...

LBseahag said...

Ay-carrumba!!

The best thing about mexico are the pee-in-the-pool bars...

Have a lot of el-fun-o!

coloradohurricane said...

Drink a few beers for me Mr. Shife.

Have a safe and fun trip

swedishnurse said...

So jealous. Wish I could go, but you know work, school, etc. Come back with some fun stories. There should be some because those guys always put on a good show.

platkat said...

Aye Dios mio! We were posting pictures of Mexicans at the same time! Except I was making fun of them...

Darius Torque said...

Party semi-hard dude!
May gut be small, your opportunities with Mrs Shife ever-plentiful.
May she be caught up in 'second-honeymoon-itus' and may your bowel movements be regular and peaceful like.

Oh...and whose looking after the dog

Love the Refreshments. While you're down there, drink the water. I think it would be an interesting experiment and become material for great blog storytelling.

Vaya con Dios.

Father of 3 said...

Have a great time, MrShife. Mrs Shife...go shopping all you want, you deserve it being married to this guy.

Dirk the Feeble said...

You're not going to make use of sombreros like the guy in your picture, are you?

auburn said...
