The Red Man sends Paw Snaps and Twirls to the South Carolina Pride Movement for their silver anniversary and says Thank You for your hard work and perseverance during the lean years – you’ve made all of our lives better in the long run, which is where we now find ourselves.

The Red Man has renewed hope for the future when he looks into the eyes of the children who cheered the Pioneers.

Get me outta here Percy…Slow needs a nap this afternoon so I have to shut up.  Paw Snaps and Twirls to all of our Amigos in cyberspace around the world who celebrated with us at Casa de Canterbury this weekend!
