Well, my Saturday didn’t turn out as I had planned. Not that it ever does, mind you. I did manage to get most of my errands done. Roo, however, taught me that she thinks I’m a push-over. Not for anything could I get her in the carrier. In fact, we could have made it to American’s Funniest Videos had anyone been there to film us. Needless to say, the appointment was moved to Monday morning. Her daddy will be getting her squirmy little self into the carrier and taking her. I’ll pick her up in the afternoon.
It’s just a check-up after her spaying two weeks ago. And, I want them to check her tummy. She’s developed some, uh, hmm, how do I say this, some atrocious aromas? She had been treated for tape worms, of all things, about a month ago. I want to make sure she’s not having trouble with anything else. I cannot imagine what kind of life she had before finding Pooh that late Friday evening.
I’m trying to get to everyone’s blog, but blogger is really giving me a fit, even on comments with just one line. So, it’s been slow going and after 5 hours, I’m taking a break. I’ll visit the rest of you tomorrow. Right now, I’m scheduling some posts.
RenFest packs up after next weekend, so I thought I’d do my last post today. Without further ado….
This is Dead Bob. We’ve never taken in this show before and BossMan suggested it. It’s advertised as not being appropriate for small children. Apparently, people don’t read the info sections. There were tons of children. Happily, the humor flew right over their heads and it really was funny. I’m glad I obeyed the ‘rules’ and didn’t get picked! Yikes!
This lady was hanging around the dragon guy. Honey and I were both snapping pics, but he really did get better ones than me-he has a better camera.
While waiting to see the tournament, we saw these guys. I completely adore Thing One and Thing Two. Something tells me that these versions can get into as much mischief as the animated ones….
The King and Queen open the tournament….
I decided to post only one pic from the tournament. Honey got a pretty good close-up near the very end. Dead Elvis looks as if he’s looking right at my husband. Shiver! He was very comical, and tricksey, too. I was also a bit impressed with the special effects they had.
I always want to check out this guy. He has birds of prey and they’re well trained. Usually. This time, he had a few rookies and they made the show very entertaining. This is a great horned owl. He did really well.
I can’t remember why he had the python, but he selected volunteers from the audience to hold this one.
This little girl hadn’t liked the snake too much, so she got to hold this beautiful little barn owl. My uncle once found an injured one and nursed it back to health in his basement. Then, it flew away!
My favorite kind of birds – falcons. Two years ago (the last time we went) he had a peregrine falcon, the fastest creature on earth, capable of speeds of 273 mph+. This guy wasn’t a peregrine, but he was pretty cool. He was only one or two weeks into the show (training) and he flew to one of the other stages and stayed a few minutes. Then, he remembered his training and really showed off for us. He was completely stunning.
After the show, we get to meet the guy and get close to the beautiful creature on his arm. He also had a vulture who’d learned that the people watching him usually had food. He kept flying away, finding turkey legs and other delectables. Needless to say, we got to see him up close and personal. I think he also enjoyed making us laugh and his trainer squirm. He was a very good sport, though.
Between us, we have tons of pictures, but I wanted to keep this simple. On the way out, we met this guy. Pretty cool. I hope next year, we can get a whole group and go.
