OT - MilleChick and MiniChick drop by

Shelly, our favorite literbike riding MilleChick, has been touring California in style with her delightful daughter in Jeff Williams' Guards Red Cabbie. I invited them to stay at my house on their way through the Tahoe area. The driveway scene Monday night:






We then went down to the pier at the Hyatt for some smoky lake action...






I think MiniChick enjoyed the surroundings, and we immediately put her hard to work modeling:












Oversleeping was not allowed at this casa (swiped these pics off of Shelly's memory card- she's got some great pics on it, hopefully she'll post some when she gets a chance):






Mission accomplished...






All is forgiven soon:






All hands on deck before we go to Rosalie's in Tahoe City for breakfast:

Nice pictures.

Is that car really leaking...
(It would be a perfect compliment to my guards red 928 now that the guards red Jeep is paid off)

And are you serving a martini to a minor?


I assume you have a models release in your files!

Yep. Dr. Leaky needs some gaskets. Shelly said although always near redline, she never exceeded it.

I have verbal releases. Modeling fees were discussed, including surcharges for chilly weather. MiniChick will be receiving some compensation...

Martini was strictly a prop. It was my "aiming oil."

...Craig, you took the words right out of my mouth.... I thought the martini may have helped persuade the little one into the modeling...

Loved the "wake up call"...

Steve, are you REALLY surprised that Jeff's car is leaking???

Great pics Steve... You appear to be a very good host.


BTW I am noticing that Grommit, Zeke, and Bohdi, are smiling big for the camera... Obedience school paying off??? or are they just happy to be in front of the camera?


Better get some oil dry.

Mattie,
yep thats the one. He headed for NYC and I got the car back. It got towed and they bashed most of the panels. Got a new paint job out of it.
Insurance can be nice.

One of my first jobs was to clean up that beach back in the early 70's(when it was Kings Castle)! I miss it.
