  •  Refresh my memory, what city in Oklahoma (7+ / 0-)

    are you in, you and the Medfair?

    And Medfair is short for what, again?

    I think it's medieval fair?

    And what are the second and third most popular booths or activities,
    aside from giving water to thirsty dogs?

    About the weather,
    I'm in Wichita, Kansas,
    not too far north of you,
    and the way you describe the weather there is,
    of course,
    similar to here.

    I just brought our three dogs in;
    the two younger and larger dogs,
    although small breed and short haired,
    can generate more body heat,
    and hold it in better with their short but dense fur,
    can tolerate the cold night better
    than the third dog,
    our old dog,
    Rowdy Joe,
    a chihuahua Pomeranian mix,
    who looks a lot like your Itzl.

    He was born in June of 2005,
    so this summer he'll be 8 years old.

    With his small body,
    in spite of his very thick fur,
    he suffers more than the two fat, young female dogs we have.

    Anyway,
    I just brought all three inside.

    I'll take them back out around seven AM,
    as the sun is coming up.

    It's the coldest part of the morning,
    but they'll need to pee and poo by then,
    and I'll put out generous bowls full of water and food,
    and,
    within a few hours,
    they'll be lying in the sun,
    feeling great.

    Sometimes,
    they don't eat all their dog food,
    and they amuse themselves
    by letting the blackbirds land and eat a little,
    before they chase them off.

    Thanks for the comfort of this daily check-in group.

    I advised some at The Grieving Room
    to check in here daily.

    A daily support group is truly comforting,
    rather than waiting til Monday evenings,
    the regular time for TGR.

    Thanks again.

    •  OU MedFair (5+ / 0-)

      is the Oklahoma University Medieval Fair in Norman, OK. It's been the 1st weekend in April for 36 years, and I've worked there 35 of those years.

      Most popular booths depends on who you are and what you like.  We have over 250 vendors, 8 stages, a Royal Court that wanders, 3 troupes of street players, 6 rows of food vendors, 2 jousting/tourney fields, 2 groups of pirates, over a dozen demonstrators, and a large interactive children's area that includes craft activities and mermaids.

      The most asked for booths at the Info Booth and Fair Office are the privies, the turkey legs, the root beer booth, the roasted nuts booth, and the wax hands booth. Those aren't necessarily the most popular.

      All knowledge is worth having. Check out OctopodiCon to support steampunk learning and fun. Also, on DKos, check out the Itzl Alert Network.

      •  Thanks! Sounds nice. Roasted nuts and turkey (0+ / 0-)

        legs.

        Home made root beer?

        8 stages.

        Show business!

        Wish I could be there for a poetry reading.

        Wish I could set myself up
        to read my poetry live.

        My wife says I should do that,
        haven't done it yet.
