SO MUCH FUN!
Of course, we started out at the Old Mill Tavern for breakfast–biscuits, gravy, hashbrowns, and bloody Mary’s. The only day of the year that Old Mill does breakfast. Could be because the Shrimpapalooza parade only starts from the Old Mill one day a year!
This is our cart for the parade.
KInd of embarrassing.
Looks like Terry is over there trying to get the Messina’s to let him ride with them!
How about this group????
That guy had tights on. See through tights. There were a LOT of snaps circulated on FB!
This was about 9 am on Saturday. Wondering when they started drinking to get him into those tights? (and should I mention that it was really cold???)
Tim Dorsey, famous Florida author, was the grand marshall. That’s Laurel and me. Three famous people in Old Homosassa!
After the parade I bought a book from him at the festival.
Mr. Dorsey suggested I buy this one because Old Homosassa is in it. And it is! I’ve slowly been reading it. Cool.
On to other things.
Old Homosassa Community Day.
This is the “Homosassa Ukers”. We are performing at 11:30 AM at community day. I’m supposed to be in the photo but I couldn’t get the camera timer to work. Kinda sad because this is such a fun shot. Tells a story. Story that a lot of senior citizens from the Woodstock era are still a wee bit insane.
Okay. Don’t you want to be there?????
Now I’m gonna close with with some pics.
The African Iris are blooming like crazy.
My first rose for the season! Almost exactly 6 weeks after I trimmed the roses on Valentine’s Day.
And the last bestest photo of all!
PUPPY OF THE WEEK!
Kimber! Adorable boxer puppy that is guarding the offices of the Homosassa Special Water District! So Smart. Already knows to sit on command and shake hands! (very spoiled and well loved poochie!)
Hope you have a super weekend!
