Camptown Ladies Sing This Song....

...Doo Dah, Doo Dah!

Yesterday Denny, Darb, Net and I attended the annual Doo Dah Parade in Columbus, Ohio. The Doo Dah Parade is free to the public, free to participate in and undoubtedly free of restraint. Part gay pride, part political, part pure goofiness, the Doo Dah parade provided just the right distraction from all of the stress of the estate stuff Denny and I are going through. The staging area was near the beautiful Goodale Park, the day was overcast but pleasant and the company wonderful. It was a very different but very enjoyable 4th of July.

The Tiki Car

Uncle Sam in a gyro-thingy mobile.

This lady was part of a swine flu float--and it's a fake butt.

A king dressed entirely in Crown Royal whiskey decanter covers.

Not sure who or what this was supposed to be but he was with several characters from the Mario Brothers games.

Daughters of Net's co-worker. Just too cute.

A working dragon made of Budweiser beer cans.

The obligatory tourist shot in front of Schmidt's Restaurant in German Village in Columbus. A great restaurant with cream puffs the size of two fists.

We too participated in the silliness.

Callie, our granddog, who had to stay home.
