I am going to have to apologize to Poley and Ruki's mom; Mommy is being prickly today and I don't want to antagonize her by making her type more on my blog than necessary. I will see if we can pick this up another day . . .
One of the reasons she is not in a great mood is because she missed my appearance in Ketchikan's Pet and Doll parade because of her stupid work. This mini-parade (all of 5 blocks) kicks off our annual Blueberry Festival (trust me, it's a big to-do here); having come from NYC, this barely counts as a block party, but hey, this is Alaska.
So, the Pet and Doll parade is for kids and the young-at-heart; kids march down the parade route with their favorite doll or pet. Mommy made Daddy walk me in the parade wearing Punchy's dress; much to his chagrin. Daddy cannot multi-task, which means he could not walk me and take decent pictures at the same time. When Mommy saw the pictures, she just gave a big *sigh*.
This is the organized mess at the start of the parade. And yup, people are still wearing sweaters and sweatshirt even though it is the beginning of August. We have had only three days above 70 degrees this summer!
