Post Doo-Dah

IN THE NEWS: According to FOX News, Miss America 1944 Venus Ramey, confronted a man on her farm in south-central Kentucky last week after she saw her dog run into a storage building where thieves had previously made off with old farm equipment.
Ramey, now 82 years-old, said the man told her he would leave. "I said, 'Oh, no you won't,' and I shot their tires so they couldn't leave," Ramey said.
She had to balance on her walker as she pulled out a snub-nosed .38-caliber handgun.
Ramey then flagged down a passing motorist, who called 911.

Well, we had a lovely day at the Doo Dah Parade. We laughed a lot. Especially at those cute little basset hounds. I tried to take a lot of pictures, but somewhere in the middle of the parade (and to the disgust of my hubby) my camera battery got exhausted. Oh well. We'll all live.

Here's some of the pics I managed to get before my camera died:

This woman (who is in her 70's) is sitting in her bathing suit--yes, true--on a throne made of ice. Yes, also true. Brrr.

This little pup was in a homemade shower contraption which squirted out bubbles as he was pulled down the street. Really cute!

Some pooped pups.

I think that's pretty much the highlights. The dogs were so funny. There was one owner who stopped to BRIEFLY chat with someone in the crowd. The dog wasted no time plopping right down in the middle of the parade stretched out on its back with its tongue out. My daughter laughed so hard.
Of course, there was a truck that would pick up all the "pooped" pups, too.
Then we went out to lunch and later dinner that day. Not too shabby of a weekend.
What did you do?

What fun! We took Cayd to see Firehouse Dog. I actually got teary-eyed. It was pretty good. Glad you guys had a nice weather snow.

Um, ah, what's a DooDah Parade??
Just an excuse for a parade, or is there a real reason? :o)
