i went back in time.. & pet pride

hi everybloggie!
Last weekend I traveled back in time. First the setting, the Wayside Inn. Since 1716, this place has been located on Boston Post Road offering hospitality and comfort to travelers. The Wayside Inn has a fascinating history.. check out the website if you have a minute. Some say the place is haunted... muuaaahhh!
But I went there to check out a festival. It was the Colonial Drum & Fife Festival. I didn't stay too long because take a listen.. constant and I mean constant drumming!

But I made a quick tour around and took in the ambiance of colonial times.
Huh? People are really taking this seriously. Wear can I get some colonial garb?
And this fun game, the kids get to walk around this lady and entangle her in a rope! I like that game.. gonna tell mom we should play that one.
The British are coming! The British are coming!! I thought they came along time ago! What in the world! Click to biggify any image if you need a closer look!
It looks like they're ready to fight. I'm gonna scoot to a quieter area. I'm a lover not a fighter anyways.
So I went to the trading posts. Teepee's are fun but I wasn't allowed to pee on it. It's a Tee Pee? Huh I'm confused again. Look below.. look close! An open roasting chicken! Oh yeah! now that smells deeeeelicious! I'm sure you can smell it now too!
On the grounds is an old mill- the Grist Mill which ground it's first grain on Thanksgiving 1929.
It was quite interesting and beautiful. I love watching the waterfall. Ahhh the sound of water falling, I think I have to pee again.

Intermission- Oops time for a roach break. I get so excited.. I have to rub it off.
And we came back to a field of drumming. I feel a bit out of place. Now would I wear red or blue? I wonder what my pals the Happy Heelers would suggest?

After I skirted away from the musical drums, I came across another historic spot.. I'm learning so much my peanut head is about to pop. George Washington had a tree planted in his honor.
Whew.. that was enough for me. I'm headed back to 2009. Fast forward please! I hope I didn't age any..
Happy Pet Pride day! Don't forget to visit my other pals with pride!


  1. Furry nice time woo had!

    Mom's junior high skhhool and a Fife and Drum Khorps SO she'll be rekhalling that in her head all day!

    Grrrrreat pikhs!

    PeeEssWoo: Make sure woo see my frog AND toad on this past Friday's bloggie!

  2. Very cool Norwood. I'm glad your mom is taking you on educational field trips because you have to get ready for your big book review. You know my sister, Susan, loves Thanksgiving. She dresses up like a pilgrim every year! I sure hope she feels well enough to do that this year. Love this post...your Mom did a great job...I think Aunt Dee would give her an A+!
    your friend,

  3. Hey Norwood did you get that march down? Have you been able to get the sound of that drumming out of your head yet? Hup two three four, hup two three four! I bet you're still dreaming about that! You'd better go chase some frogs to get your mind in the right place.
    see ya pal,

  4. Our momma wishes we had such cool things in our neck of the woods to see...sigh. But we do have some fun stuff so she says that we have to be happy with that. We DO think that you should have been able to pee on the tee-pee - what's wrong with that?

  5. What fun Norwood.. Of course you would have to wear blue. We are Blueman you know..

  6. Hey Norwood, Sudbury is beautiful, huh? hard to believe it's a toxic wasteland, a superfund site... a guy that I worked with in marlboro is the "surgeon" for the Sudbury Co.'s of Militia & Minutemen, does "door duty" at the wayside and also attends the pat's and rev's games. they shoot their black powder rifles for goals and touchdowns.

  7. What were the British doing there? Horrors!


  8. The British??? Who are they? and why are they here? Were here? Ok you've lost us, but sure looks like you had fun!!! Was there lots to eat?
