Hurrah - we are first Asta!! We loved your smilebox - you always make good ones with great pictures. That looked like a great festival with music and dancing and lots of people!
We were very impressed that you won the tug of war - we did wonder how your poor alligator survives!
Another nice happy day with visitors - you are a lucky doggie.
love and kisses

You got to play with an alligator? My mom won't let me do that. Do you think it's because we have REAL alligators here?

Great River Festival. We have them here in Mayemphis, but the music gots to be Blues, to go with the Booze and Barbeque. Muzzer is hoping the Eye Talian festival gets a pass on all three...well, maybe not the Booze, but they gotta call it Vino!

You are so lucky to live some place where they do so many wonderful things right outside your door.

Sally said...

Dear Asta
You have one funky neighbourhood - I love the idea of wrastlin' an alligator - Paddy is good at wrastlin' but he gets over excited and sometimes wrastles the wrong thing.

Hope you enjoyed the parade

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

Hi, Asta -

You and your family do the greatest things. Our neighborhood is so BORING. Not much happens in New Hampshire either - at least where Kaci and Grammy live.

We like the smilebox with all the pictures. You, your Auntie Deb and Sloane looked like you had so much fun together.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

P.S. Mama has one more year of school left, then she will be a college graduate.
