Howdy All. We have some exciting news to share with everyone. Remington will be pulling his horsey utility vehicle (H.U.V.), which is actually his wagon, in the Adolphus Children's Christmas Parade. The parade is on December 5th at 10:00 a.m. in Dallas. It will be shown live on Dallas television WFAA as well as 350 affiliate stations throughout the U.S. It will also be broadcast on the Armed Forces Network so our troops can have some holiday cheer.
It's a wonderful parade and all proceeds go to the Children's Medical Center in Dallas. Many of the kids you will see on the vehicles are patients from the hospital and it's so wonderful to see the smiles on their faces and the joy they feel riding in the parade.
For those of you in the Dallas area, the parade is free and lots of fun to see in person, so come on down :) You'll have the chance to see the Big Boy all dressed up in his finest, pulling his wagon and strutting his big stuff!
I hope that those of you who can't come see the parade, will be able to watch it on your local ABC station. We have done this parade for many years and although it's a very early rise for all of us, it's well worth it!
Remi doesn't know about it yet, so mum's the word. He isn't going to be happy about giving up free roaming pasture time to go to work...tee hee. But, once he's dressed up, he'll forget all about it and do a fine job. I'll have plenty of peppermints on hand so that he will have his treat at the end of the parade route.
So mark your calendar for Saturday December 5th at 10:00 a.m. and enjoy an hour of holiday fun if you're able to see it. Who knows, maybe we can ask Santa for a big crate of carrots for Remi.
Stay tuned, stay happy and stay with us!
