Fun at the Fur Bash by Skeeter
I just arrived back in GA and am exhausted from lack of sleep (about 10 hours the past 3 days) but I refuse to get into the bed until I unwind a bit from the drive. I decided to pop in the pictures taken at the Fur Ball Bash. I will never be a photographer, that's for sure as I did not get the best of shots... But a few are better then none right....
We started the evening by meeting at the Blackhorse. All were able to be there but Alice, The Professor and Guinevere. But you were all with us in spirit. I must admit, being the first one to arrive in the restaurant, I was totally mortified at the stares and giggles from the patrons so I waited for the Calvary to show up to help me get over my shyness. Pam and Flyboy soon helped me regain my strength to once again enter the premises. Imagine that, Skeeter being shy! ha...
The group picture was not the best as I cut Pam completely out of the shot and Brett was not leaning forward as he should have been. Bad boy you! We did get the Saint to snap one of Pam, Flyboy and me from the other end of the table though. The other picture is Amy and Alice chatting it up.
The ball room was turned into a really neat and at some corners a bit scary by people such as Brett, Stacey, Amy and a crew of other volunteers and also a little help from me and the Saint as we did put in a good hour or so of work. It was not work to me as I found it fun! The ball room looked spectacular for the event!
We met up with Alice and the Professor and Guinevere joined us soon after arriving as well... We were a comical group of characters. The Leader of our pack was Sandy being a little red devil with horns and cap. She was really kicking it up on the dance floor at times with her bud Jamie. The Boss did not let us down, he came as the Boss, being himself! The Saint did not let us down either as he came as just himself too. Boring you people that don’t dress up for costume parties... Oh did I say costumes? I must not say that around the Dragon and his slaying attire! He had his Lady Guinevere all dolled up in her best attire as well as his attire which I might add, he stitched himself. I was impressed and thinking of hiring him as a seamstress the next time I need a new dress! Alice and I were cats. She a Gold and Black Leopard or spotted cat and me a Tuxedo cat complete with cheap Tux tee-shirt and black gloves. I had to keep an eye on those gloves as several kept eyeing them. LOL. The Professor had me stumped with his Traveling Gnome attire! How creative indeed! Fly boy was a hit with his rocker rough neck tattooed arms and bandanna on his head. The perfect Rock manager or was he a crazy baby sitter with his toddler Pam all cute in her Cat pajamas, slippers and sippy-cup filled with beer! Bad baby, bad baby! Brett was a handsome one all dressed up in his black jacket and hat looking like a GQ model but I think the scariest of all was Jeremy in his Goth Dracula attire! It was fun pawing at him on the dance floor to the Monster Mash! One of the funniest costumes had to be Amy and her big Bertha self. She had a poor little doggie sticking out her bum but the little bone tag above little Fido explained, "no animals were harmed in the making of this costume" She was carrying her sign looking for that lost puppy all night long. I wonder if she ever found it... Stacey was a beautiful Dark dressed woman, looking kind of Goth next to Jeremy. I think she has been spending too much time hanging out with Guinevere and Dragon boy because at times, I swear it was hard to tell them apart their dresses were so similar… I wonder if they planned that.
The bidding war at the silent auction was a success with lots of bidder’s running back and forth upping their bids every so often. People went home with lots of goodies for their bids. The voting on Mr. and Miss Wags to Witches was a total success as well with jars flowing with greenbacks! I am not sure how much money was collect during the night but the cash was flowing for the furry babies, that’s for sure. Sandy, you will have to get us a total amount on the fundraising event.
Alice and Professor, it was great to finally get to meet you. I know you don’t get out much Alice but am glad you joined us so we could get a chance to meet you in person! It is great to put faces on people you chat with on the computer. You and the Professor were wonderful to spearhead the Pet People table thus having us form a Logo! Who knows what is in store next! Professor, Mr gnome sir, I did not get a picture of you but I am sure our professional group photo will show up here at some point. Sorry for the mistake. I knew I should have snapped photos before we entered the Ball room! Darn darn darn!
Shannon and the rest of you Pet People that did not make the bash, You were with us in spirit. Shannon it was good to see you at the game and ‘aint’ those girls great! My mom told me on the phone that they won the tournament today so those young ladies had a perfect undefeated season! Well done young Lady Hawks!
Over all, I am totally exhausted from this quick trip but it was well worth it to be able to hang out with the Pet People and to also meet and mingle with other animal loving people!
I will share more pictures tomorrow!
Until we meet again....
