Rose-y Nose-y

Preparations are well under-way for the Portland Rose Festival coming up next week:

It looks like it's going to have all sorts of rides, events, and things for the humans to make themselves sick on.

I am not much for these sorts of things, they're usually really crowded and have lots of little children screaming.

I understand the appeal of the shiny, light-up things, but not of being thrown around and around right after eating greasy carnival food.

And of course, dogs don't like to fly (unless it's straight up in the air after a tasty pine cone, or I hear that frisbees also can induce some canine aire-time)...

One of these days we have to walk over the Steel Bridge - it's the coolest looking one here, but it's never been open for walkers whenever we've wanted to walk across. It's raining today, so maybe next weekend...

Your intrepid Rose Festival report - completed. More to come when it's actually in full swing!

We've never seen a rose festival but we've heard that Portland has a fab parade. We'll go to the Memorial Day parade on Monday, but it won't be near as huge as yours. I don't like screaming kiddos either, but Hootie seems least they're good for jumping up on. BOL!!

Are you gonna go eat the Carnival food, just no rides? Maybe you can win some stuffies too!!!

Love nibbles,

We hope you get to walk across the steel bridge sometime too! That looks like an excellent adventure! Meanwhile, enjoy the fair! (Minus the kids and rides and stuff)
