The Visit – A Photo Essay

California girls

Hanging out with the California girls – Debra Kristi, Debra Eve, Lynn Kelley, August McLaughlin and me. We can’t keep our hands off Thor.

I found Debra Kristi’s blog through her Immortal Mondays where she covers many different types of legends, myths and folklore. I met Debra in person while visiting California. She introduced me to Thor. He has been on a world tour ever since.  When she asked if I would like to host her little friend, of course I jumped at the chance. I planned to show the God of Thunder a great time in Colorado!

After Thor arrived, my daughter Courtney introduced him to the village. He didn’t waste any time.

Thor met Roxy.

Kelly could stand-in for Thor if he ever needs a body double.

Thor rocked the Denver Mall on New Year’s Eve.

Thor was a thirsty little man.

Thor really is the God of Thunder!

We took Thor skiing, but I’m not sure he enjoyed the brisk Colorado air.

Thor and the family

I hope Thor had a good time. I know we enjoyed every minute with him!

Make sure you check out Debra’s fantastic blog!

If you could be a mythological figure which would you choose?

  3. This is my kind of post! I love having the traveling inanimate and anthropomorphic character in tow. The second most compelling thought I have is how much I would like to BE Thor and traveling with all of you attractive ladies. Cheers to super heroes!

  4. Posseidon – I would be God of the Seas… though Zues is pretty cool, too. I enjoyed reading The Lightning Thief a couple of summers back and enjoyed it. I rented the movie for them and they rolled their eyes until they started watching it and then it was quiet! Have a great day..

  5. Great pics with Thor! Hmm, if I could be any mythological figure I think I’d be Athena. She always appealed to me. :)

  6. Looks like Thor had quite the harem when you were with the California girls. :-) How could he not have a blast hanging out with you? You took him everywhere! (Good thing, too…gives him more reason to keep Loki in line and away from earthlings)

    • Hahaha! He was in the midst of some adoring and swooning fair maidens! :) We took him everywhere but on the Polar Plunge. We left him home with the Hairy Beast!
      Thanks for stopping by Kitt!

  7. Too much fun! Thor had a thor-oughly fabulous time, I see! Your captions are the best. That Thor is going to be exhausted from his time at your house ~ I hope the next stop allows some rest for the poor guy!

  13. I always enjoyed Athena. The gal had some balls.

    Looks like Thor enjoyed Colorado. Is this is his first time in cold weather? Or maybe it’s not so cold in CO right now. It’s been positively frigid here in NH. 2 degrees or less every morning for the past week!

  15. I’m sitting here, spending waaaay too much time thinking about which Mythological figure I’d most like to be. I’ll throw out King Arthur and Apollo and be done with it.

      I traveled to WI since I posted this and the accent is already rubbing off.
      Those are great choices. They are two really amazing dudes although I will always be partial to Arthur probably because of the movie Camelot. Now I must get back to that cheese platter….

  27. Don’t let the long blond hair fool ya. The dude’s a thousand if he’s a day. He plays the Good Demi-God but he’s a cad. Cold temps make him stronger. He’s from Scandinavia and Colorado is a perfect place for Viking debauchery. Don’t buy the comic book and movie image. He’s a cad of the first water. Just sayin’.

      When I didn’t see you at UMAAD, I figured you were a busy lady! It is ironic after “talking” to you, but I think I had the most new people ever and they were in a subscribing frenzy!
