Awww. Few things are better than prancing poodles. I happened to be in a neighboring town when they had their Christmas Parade a few years ago and 2 beautiful white poodles (with red ribbons) kicked off the march. Forget the people! They stole the show.

Really not looking forward to the next several nights. If I can make it home on the morning that my night shifts end, I will be happy. Chance of snow and sub freezing temps for 3 straight days afterward. It's not going to be pretty.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
