2011 Donkey Derby!

LOL this was a TON of FUN this year!  Perhaps it was because I pulled back and was unable to be involved in every single detail of managing this HUGE event?  (ya THINK?!)  But I had a blast and earned myself a bright RED sunburn on my cheeks mainly because I arrived in town at 9AM met with friends at 930 am and since it was not BLISTERING HOT did not bother to wear a hat. Big Mistake!  Anyway, I spent Saturday blazing away with my camera the best I could and grabbed some great Parade Photos!  My dogs were sure TIRED after hoofin it up and down the concrete!  It finally got too crowded to take pics so I gave up and went to the Elks Lodge (BPOE 316) for a tall one.
So, enjoy my pics and comments and don't forget to LIKE ME on FB at Gold Country Realty! (shameless advertiser that I am)
