This is a Pic of my landlady Barbara in her Red/White and Blue!
A Big Happy Fourth of July to all my sweeties out here in this delightful world of blogging.
Today my landlady/friend Barbara came to Texas for the annual Round Top 4th of July Parade. I believe this was the 162th year for this parade to be held. Could that be right? I have to look that up again. lol
Barbara had intended for us to ride in the parade in her 1959 Red and White Cadillac Convertible but when she was getting ready for the trip to my house it was discovered the tags had expired. Oh how disappointed she was because of wanting to participate in the parade.
Even though we were bystanders along with her great grandson there in the red shirt beside her in the picture above we still had a lot of fun watching all of the hundred and something entries to this parade. Considering population for Round Top is now listed as 91 residents this was a huge parade.
I took a lot of pic's which I have attached but most of them are not really that good. I was standing under a shade tree and was to comfortable to move and get some really good photo's. Plus the crowd kept me back too. haha
Just in case you don't care to read about this parade let me fill you in really quick about the kitty that was abandoned by the renters out here on the North Forty. I called them and let Ms Pearl give them a piece of her mind and then I finally managed to get the cat to go back inside the house where she would be safe for the night. She was too terrified to ever come to me since she had to have been traumatized being left by her owners.
The next morning I walked over to the pink house to check on her and she was on the very top of the kitchen cabinets that almost reach the ceilings. How she managed to get that high is beyond me. I called and called for her but she never came down.
Ended up having to call the Sheriff's Department and they came out and then they called animal control. I filled out the paper work to file charges for animal abuse against these people. I had a girlfriend tell me how mean I was to do this but I tell you it did not bother me one bit. In fact if I still worked at the Sheriff's Department I would of served the papers myself.
The poor cat was declawed left out here to fend for herself. See my post before this one to read more.
I put in the paperwork if she was adopted to call me and I would see if I could somehow take her.
Ms Pearl did have a few words with the owner and it turns out she had a lot to say to these idiot's. Also leaving the house filthy did not set to well either so besides chose words about the cat a few were thrown in about them living like pigs. I have to say Ms Pearl has been in hiding of late but boy when she decides to come out then be glad your not on the receiving end of her wrath. lol
Look at the horns on this steer! There were about five of these ridden by some brave fools.
This hot rod was driven by Babe Wasserman the best man in my wedding. (Really truly the best man) Wish I could of captured a pic of him because he is still a very nice looking man.
I had already sat down and was through taking pictures for the day when I heard his name announced. By the time I jumped up to get this picture it was too late. As you can see I mostly got a butt shot of some guy bending over. haha.....Only Babe would be driving a antique hot rod. It was a really beauty and I missed the shot and hearing what year it was made. If that guy had not been there I might have gotten a good picture.
It was mostly just antique cars, wagons, tractors and floats but there was one group that were walking dressed in some ridiculous looking scary outfits. I ask Barbara what the heck were they suppose to be but she was too busy staring at them to answer me. haha
Ok enough parade pictures. I can't find the ones I want to share with you anyway. lol
I hope you are safe and enjoying the 4th.
Love to all
