The Sheltie of Liberty

Hello, Flossy here, with news about this year's Fourth of July festivities here in Town.  Although Mother does not have television, I do like to keep up with current events, and so was not unaware that yesterday the Statue of Liberty re-opened in New York City.  What a perfect theme for my Parade Costume, I thought!
 Mother found a pillow case the proper color for my robe, and quickly cut a piece of Timtex into a crown.  In less than the time it takes to chase a cat out of the house, I was transformed!
I felt very regal as the Sheltie of Liberty.  At 10:30, we hurried to the Top of PFI Hill to join the Parade.
There is always quite a wait before the People in Charge declare it is time to march.  I waited patiently. 

Mother was too busy marching to take other photos during the parade, but we did look splendid, I am sure!  Later in the day, we stopped by the Kiddie Karnival to see how The Nose was performing.
It appeared to be a Huge Success!
In summary, the Fourth of July was fun but exhausting.  Thanks for visiting!


  1. There were lots of comments about the parade and events posted on the 'net. It sounds like it was a great time! I felt like playing hermit, and was happy enough to stay home and live vicariously through other's photos and stories. . . but we did come in for the fireworks--pretty impressive display!

  2. Happy times dear Flossy! Your costume won for best in show (parade!) and you can thank your creative mom for that! I enjoyed this view very much. Ta! N, x
