While I was gadding about the east coast last week, I told some people about Rabbit Hash, Kentucky and their tradition of electing dogs as mayors. As promised, I provide further info.

Meanwhile, wacky festival season continues. The Wickerman Festival goes on this weekend in Scotland. In England, they’re racing VW Bugs and snails (not against each other, at least as far as I know).

Over on this side of the pond, we’re racing hermit crabs (in Virginia Beach) and celebrating Da Vinci Days (in Oregon) and Hemingway Days (in Florida). No one has any excuse to stay at home! Well, except the weather. That’s a pretty good excuse these days.

Let's go to Key West right this minute. If we are going to burst into flames because of the heat, we should at least be allowed to be in public barefoot with an adult beverage.

Ahhh Key West, I remember you well.Heavy sigh.

I'm ready when you are!

Let's do it! I have never been to Key West. Barefoot with an adult beverage sounds like the way to go. :)
