Vacation update Part Three

Wild Rice Days!

Every year on Labor Day weekend
they have Wild Rice Days in a
town close to us named McGregor.

There are many festivities
there that weekend
  and everyone looks forward to it!

I get a little attention when we go....


Yep, I am in there somewhere....

Many people stopped and asked
about me and petted me. 


To give you an idea....
we walked 7 blocks down the street
and back....
how long did that take?
2 1/2 hours....

I LOVED IT!


They also had a cool car show....

Here is Beth's favorite....
(however she said she would have liked it better
if it was copper and cream colored....)


So....
 there was another awesome
time I had on my vacation....

Oh, and even Miss Aitkin liked me!


How about that --
ROYALTY!

Tomorrow the final segment
of my vacation update....

Putting on my tool belt!

NOTE:
NFL season opener
tonight!
7:30 pm
Saints vs Packers

FINALLY --
My favorite time of year!
(Vikings play on Sunday....)

Later -- Remington --
I really DO love attention!
-- out!
