P is for Parade, Pies, Paint–Ocean City Doo Dah Parade, 2013

Parade, Pies, and Paint

I missed the Ocean City Doo Dah Parade this year because we were painting in our church in Margate, NJ, getting reading for volunteer groups coming to help repair Superstorm Sandy damage.

Ocean City had damage, too, like many other coastal towns, but volunteers have helped here, too, and life is returning to normal. To prove that, The 2013 Doo Dah Parade went on as scheduled. Here is a video clip of all the silliness that went on. The shaving cream pies were a big hit.

See my post from 2012 for pictures of a Doo Dah Parade.  Saturday Silliness: Basset Hound Doo Dah Parade 2012/08/04.

Here are more Ocean City stories from 2012.


The Last Meow

cats dressed upBy the way, don’t ever dress up us kitties like this. It is beneath our dignity. Save it for the dogs. They don’t have enough sense to care!

Hey. WooHoo. Lookee. I can see the weekend from here. WooHoo, WooHoo.

Meow for now. =<^y^>=And my cat...judo

  1. SO glad that some semblance of normalcy is returning. We were heartsick at the images share from the damage of Superstorm Sandy.

  2. Loved the cats! 🙂

  3. Glad the recovery from Sandy is ongoing. I hope that most things will be done soon/finally. Though I recognize that some things will never be repaired , because they can’t be.

    And the cats look sufficiently silly. Nobody in his/her right mind would humiliate a dog that way.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

    • Recovery is going well, but in some areas, it’s going very slowly.
      Unfortunately for the dogs, some owners do dress them up. It’s funny when it’s for a parade or some other special event. But every day? Nah. Not good.

  4. Stopping by on the A to Z Blogging Challenge. Love the dressed kitties. They seem to like the attention, except the kick boxer below them. So glad life is returning to normal routines. Can’t keep good folks down!!

  5. Hello, Janice! I’m glad the east coast is getting put back together. It’s so horrible what happened there. Hurricanes have no mercy.

    Those poor kitties! I don’t think any animal should be dressed like humans. I feel so bad for the poor things when people stuff them in clothes!

    Happy A to Z-ing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

    • Thanks for visiting, Laura. You’re right, hurricanes have no mercy. I am glad we only have to face them once in a great while. I would love to live in the warmer weather of the South, but they have too many hurricanes.
