Par for the Gophers
Saturday 21 July 2007

We went mini golfing for the 2007 summer gathering! For being sort of a last-minute decision it turned out to be a good one and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves. Afterwards we found dinner at Mancino's and played on the new jungle-gym at the park.

The only drawback was that most people had to drag themselves away from the last Harry Potter book, which came out the night before. Even then, I think some people stayed home to read it.

Attendees: Josh Gulch, Marie Jarden, Charles Meyer, Paul Arquette, Mark Arquette, Dan Norton, Felicity Powers, Sean Murray, Phil Dake, Scott Cook, Jeff Osthimer, Katie Mihaly, James Malcolm, and Laura Mayfield.


Americone Dream is a delicious pint of Truth Marie samples her first bite of Americone Dream. Her life may never be the same.

I thought not This is a watermelon wearing goggles and a hat. Any questions?

You do not want to cross Felicity Felicity is tough stuff and totally means business

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
She constantly reminds the driver that it is their duty to take a bullet for her Marie likes to ride in cars thinking that she's the President being driven to an important summit meeting.

'I say, my first term is one of prosperity and growth.'
'That's hogswash, old man!  My second term is truly a golden age.'
'I daresay that even the Kaiser has produced more than you, sir.'
'Oh!  You take that back or I will box your ears!' Here we are folks, the Brothers Arquette!

Their first act will be impersonations of the two non-consecutive terms of Grover Cleveland.

I don't even know what to say Phil, always a master of culture, sticks some funnels up his nose.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
I have no idea who the dude in the back is but he was probably pretty mad that we took all the balls We went to play miniature golf!

Our group was so big there weren't enough golf balls available for us all, so we learned the value of sharing today.

Luckily, Dan Norton was there to coach us.

Josh also plays mini golf by his rules Josh is a sporty outdoorsman type of fellow.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
And yet he still talks to Karl Rove on the weekends Charles so delicately guides his ball closer to the hole. He golfs with such trepidation that one wonders if he's afraid of insulting the thankless ball.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
He looks like a boy who just accidently killed his dog with a golf club Sean waded into a pond after his ball, even though Josh was running to find a net.

Also wiping out indigenous people along the way Josh is very territorial, claiming every new landmass in the name of Her Majesty, the Queen.

Team Discovery Channel were mini golf pathfinders of a sort Paul and Mark pause while Team Discovery Channel makes their way through the twelfth green.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
All in his head, no less Sean calculates the best trajectory to putt the ball taking into account the rotation of the Earth and recent solar activity.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Disgusting degenerate ball Paul teaches that lousy ball a good what-for.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
They are not speed golfers Felicity, Scott, and Phil were way behind everyone else.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
He will execute the losers Sean will oversee the final moves of this game. He will determine the winners.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
We all have that problem at some point or another Scott finds himself in a bad place: one hole left and no ball to putt.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Rumor has it that Scott is still out there Felicity gloats because she has finished. Scott is probably still looking for a ball.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
It was the only reason she came out today All Marie wanted was ice cream so Marie darn well got some ice cream.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Though I may have just Photoshopped it for all you know The obligatory group shot, to prove that all these people actually know one another.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
I wouldn't want to sit next to Dan, either Paul scrambled out of the group the first chance could get.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Josh is thrifty sometimes Josh drinks his free water and gosh darn it he deserved every penny of it.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
BLATANT CONSPIRACY Somehow Sean and Mark dressed alike. It's like they planned this or something.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
And boy, will she wish it were the last time Dinner at Mancino's and Marie meets Steggy for the first time.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Steggy will nibble your fingers off if you're not careful Most stegosaurs are herbivores. Steggy understands the need to have some protein in your diet.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Angles got no manners Josh glows in the setting sunlight as an angel sneezes upon him.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Just following orders, like Eichmann I don't know what this is about and I never did. I was just told to take a picture.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Man, what is that? Paul gives a thumbs up well done good job to ... whatever that is he's been eating.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Somebody probably burped or something The context has been lost to time but they seem pretty happy regardless.

Someday he will establish contact again The moon rises above Sean's head. He reminisces about home.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Boy, isn't it just the keenest! Katie has leftovers and, goshdarnit, that's just super okay!

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Don't tell anyone, though This is a house that has a spaceship parked on its roof.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Hopefully Paul has a plan Back to Josh's as we deliberate the next stop in our adventures.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
But trust me when I say we're working on that Dan has been channeling Dr. House all day. He's getting there but lacks the vicodin addiction.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Mainly because I don't think there is an answer to that A nickel's worth of advice would be to not ask why Jeff drives around with a wizard's cloak and magic scepter in his trunk.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Ala-fo-shizzle Gangsta wizard all up in this hizzie.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Cue the uplifting violins Charles skips through sprinklers into the setting sun.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
What, soccer? Josh climbs a goal post. He never did get the hang of football.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
It's all in the wrist Jeff scales the other end with greater ease.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
He would go on to shatter both legs Jeff shows off while Josh tries to figure out how to get down without breaking something.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
But that's what we love him for Sean takes the most difficult path in any venture.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Why must everything be so difficult? All Josh wanted to do was to walk up the twisty slide unhindered but was blocked each time. Here Laura is surprised to find her slide to freedom blocked by some turd with a camera.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
This is, like, really important Marie slides into Josh's attempt to climb the slide. Can't they see he's trying to work here?

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Time to move on with life Dan and Charles careen into Josh on the slide. Maybe this isn't worth the effort.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Danger follows Dan like a tick on a dog Dan braces himself against a structure as an earthquake uproots the ground around him.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
We wouldn't understand Sean on the move. He is up to something.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
And they'll bring home the gold Paul, Marie, and Charles train for the synchronized swinging competitions in Oslo.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Oh what a world Laura finds herself in a bit of a pickle.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Dan will be awfully sour about that Paul climbs the swings so that he can drop pebbles onto Dan.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
This would maybe be more impressive if you could see the ground Josh on the swings, taking a self-portrait while horizontal to the ground.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Where did he get corn? Dan on the move with ... a stalk of corn?

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Well have you, now that you think about it? Marie apparently never saw somebody taking pictures from a swing set before.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Maybe it would be easier if Josh could just be taking pictures out of a helidozer Jeff looks up at Josh as Josh swings above Jeff.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
We lost Katie & Felicity but gained James & Laura ... a fair trade Another group shot with the people we had by the end of the day.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
It's now all the rage in Europe Jeff and Sean experiment with their new slinkyphone.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Nobody uses slinkys the right way anymore Kids, that's not how you use a slinky....

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
She beat Deep Blue twice in a croquet match, but Deep Blue won once and tied another Laura plays croquet but something tells me that this isn't a fair test of her masterful croquet skills.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
That's when we lost Jeff : ( Jeff is all "enough of these bloomin' shenanigans!"

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Maybe he is broken? Dan returns, but not with his normally stylish entrance.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
Marie would totally be Blossom Marie reenters just in time to watch Powerpuff Girls.

And that's how we ended the summer gathering. Powerpuff Girls huzzah!
