I (Don't) Love a Parade

The Portland Macy's Thanksgiving Parade started in my neighborhood this morning.

While I was at first intrigued, I was ultimately displeased. All of those drummers were hurtin' my ears.

Even though we tried to go around it, we just couldn't get away fast enough.

Crazy costumes, loud noises, and lots of people. Oh goody goody gumdrops. Get me outa here!

Lets do a little more walking around NW Portland, shall we? It's a lovely day - an unexpectedly sunny one - so I'm up for a long walk.

All of the windstorms we've been having have been GREAT. Can you guess why?


Oh, can I have that fine stick you've got there mama?


This one is quite lovely. Portable size, yet large enough to keep up appearances. And so tasty too!

I've just got to do a little more work on this end, and then I'll be ready to walk again. You don't mind waiting, do you mama? OF COURSE YOU DON'T.





Hi Bogart,

Be glad you don't live in New York City, they have parades every five minutes!

We never seen one so we don't know if we like them or not but mommy says they are fun but they are noisy!

Luv ya,
Riley and Star.

Bogart. Your expressions are priceless. You could post wordless Wednesdays every day and we'd almost always know what you are thinking.

Watch out for splinters,
Jake and Fergs xxoo

We've never been to a parade before! Maybe we should be glad about that?!
Maybe you can find some pinecones that blew out of the trees too, Bogie!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Even though I (BRD) am quite skitish as far as noises, for some reason parades haven't freaked me out. I actually surprised the folks that I have been a good parade attendee. So far St.Patty's Day parade in Phoenix and several July4th parades without insident. Maybe you should come sit with me & I'll calm you down??
Smooches, BabyRocketDog
