Oh, for God’s sake. Today has been a very STRANGE day on Worsham Street. The old woman Slow and one of the Little Women of Worsham got started early this morning with a scenario worthy of YouTube. Unfortunately, no one around here is capable of filming.
Bienvenide to Louisiana thank you very much
Apparently the Little Woman was supposed to drive her foster chocolate lab Sage to Lafayette, Louisiana today to meet someone taking the dog to a forever home, and the LW woke up throwing up and after much texting back and forth and serious misgivings about this Plan B on the part of the LW but she was desperate, the next thing I knew Slow jumped in the old Dodge Dakota and took off with the chocolate lab. That’s the last Spike and I saw of her until very late this afternoon. Dog was Gone so I assumed Mission Accomplished. I heard her tell Pretty tonight that it was 232 miles one way. Geez Louise.
And all we got out of this Laurel and Hardy movie was a picture of the Louisiana Welcome Center grounds? Whatever.
It’s Friday night – it’s the weekend – the Gamecocks are playing an obscure team from Florida tomorrow which is always a potential recipe for disaster. The ‘Horns have a bye week so that’s a relief.
Meanwhile, back in Columbia, it’s Gay Pride Weekend complete with a big March downtown from somewhere to the State Capitol and then lots of festivities which are always fun for one and all. Slow hates to miss a good March, but Pretty will be there waving our family flag with gusto.
Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it’s off to Pride we go!! Heh, heh. My little poem for the night.
Rainbow Flags have flown on Main Street
for the entire month of September!
Paw Snaps and Twirls to the City of Columbia!!
Get me outta here Percy, The Red Man is feeling entirely too good tonight – a dog gets closer to a forever home and the Gays get ready to party in Columbia. Life is good.
Well done Slow but what a good thing Pretty is there to wave a flag!
It was fun to participate just a tiny bit in carrying that sweet lab to a better life. She was a great traveler, too! Traveling in the truck with The Red Man is like being in a confined space with a Whirling Dervish complete with real Twirls and Barking…Sage was calm as could be.
And yes, thank God for Pretty who carries the flag for us – she and I have been marching in parades together since the 1993 March on Washington…nobody marches better than Pretty! 🙂
Bet it felt good to transport Sage to her forever home even if she felt like she was in a travelling circus 😉 Have missed those pride marches ever since we left London 10 years ago but love looking at photos of any of them.
Nothing like a Pride March for Adrenaline and Thankfulness Rush!! The March in Columbia has been going on in a conservative Southern state for more than 20 years. I remember the first ones with literally more vocal anti-gay protesters on the sidewalks than the handful of brave souls marching. Outrageous acts and everyday rebellions, as Gloria Steinem would say. Right makes might.
That little lab is so lucky to have her Worsham Street guardian angels. I hope you had a nice cocktail waiting for Slow when she returned home after her whirlwind trip. And speaking of cocktails, my humans are watching that Gamecock game right now (well, Daddy is napping before the big LSU showdown, but Mommy’s watching the game), and we all hope Slow is having one stiff cocktail (or perhaps a series of stiff cocktails) to get through this one. It’s a good thing someone in Columbia is having a little Pride this weekend. Hope the Gamecocks manage to pull this one out (well, they just scored!) and that the Tigers can somehow beat those Dawgs!
Oh Miss Harper Lee, The Red Man hates it when the Cocks are losing – bad language flows like a sailor at a bar on leave! Paws are crossed in the second half.
Just so you know, our house will be in LSU’c corner when you play between the hedges in Athens today. Geaux Tigers! Drink heavily. 🙂
Woo, hoo!!! Ma, Cassie Sack of Potatoes, and your Poppy are doing the Happy Dance for Sage!!! Good for ol’ Slow jumping right in there to save the day. She’s a true-hearted dog rescuer if ever there was one. 😀 Ma says retrievers almost always travel better than ninny-headed terriers. Hey! Wait, Red! I think we’ve been insulted!!
Ma is very happy that Pretty is in Columbia saving the day for gays on parade!!! We’re hoping she has good waving weather and all your teams win.
Oh, Miss Popps,
Thank you and Ma and Cassie Sack of Potatoes for saying nice things about Slow, but we’re trying to downplay on Worsham so as not to give her too much credit…any little thing and she’ll ask for a raise as my editor…she’s really a shameless self-promoter. 🙂
Your Ma is right and yes, we are insulted by her remarks about our travel issues. Retrievers are definitely duller than terriers. Remember that. We have standards to uphold.
Pretty is our hero, isn’t she? She carries us wherever she is.
Paw Snaps and Twirls to all of our amigos in Pennsylvania,
The Red Man
Always good to hear when a dog gets a new permanent home, and especially good to be informed of the goings on there in Columbia, God bless the city of Columbia, many a time I was there to participate and it brings back good memories….
Yes, looks like they had a great Pride weekend! Your visits to Columbia were always fun times!! Good memories…:)
