AIDS Walk Portland – HERE I AM!!!
It was a very exciting morning – mama and I walked in the AIDS Walk Portland!Â We thought it was going to rain on our parade, but it turned out to be a lovely, crisp day.Â A perfect time to remember those that we’ve lost to this horrible disease, and to continue the work so that it will be eradicated SOON!!!
A moment of silence started us off…
Then it was clear skies and drag queens!!! WOO-HOO!!!
We were walking with some of mama’s co-workers and it was LOTS OF FUN
We talked about all sorts of things, and I tried hard to maintain composure and focus.Â But you know me, I would get kinda distracted…
So many people – it was very cool.Â My first AIDS Walk, but I’m sure that it’s not gonna be my last (unless the researchers magically cure AIDS before next October – lets all wish for that!!!)
Lots of walkie – lots of grumbly (tummy, that is).Â Lets go pick up dad and have a little lunch, shall we?Â I’m in the mood for some good french fries (I’ve been thinking about my friend Mareike all day and how much I miss her and how she’d slip me most of her fries and her burger whenever we used to have lunch together…)…
Yes, I would like a fry.
Mmm… they fry them in special oil so they’re not greasy and they stay hot.
Thanks for that dad – high five!
We’re quite the team, me and dad…
Hot fries and a cold beer.Â You really know how to live, dad…
Can you see the resemblance?
Lets get back to those fries… it looks like mama isn’t going to finish that fine basket of fries.Â Shall I help?
Only a few fries are left – the “rejects”, the crummy ones, the cold-ish ones.Â That doesn’t matter to me dad, I’m still interested even if you’re kind of over feeding them to me.Â I shall turn on my special “Aire Ray Spex” that will magically bring that basket a little closer to my waiting chompers.
Just a little closer…
VOILA!Â One well-placed paw into the basket sends them flying toward me.Â It’s raining fries, hallelujah, it’s raining fries, AMEN!
Help me finish up those stragglers that managed to hold on to the basket before their countrymen joined me on the floor.
Waste not, want not!
And I want MORE…
How about that last bit of Gardenburger, mama?
