Hem. Sissy wants the basset balloon. No, no, NO!

Green is MY favorite color, so we'll be on the lookout for cool green frocks, tiaras and more to help you celebrate this year.

Marjie said...

My, my, my! You all were very busy with setting up that parade and all. I just didn't realize you had an air hangar in your back yard. You must have one, or else where would you store those balloons? Fudge, dear sir, you are a Bad Sport Extraordinaire! But how very gentlemanly of you to acknowledge our friends Gretchen and Sissy, and of course, the other winners.

Green for PWD day, eh? Gotta think a while on that one.
