It was a beautiful fall day for the special Laurel Saddle Friends Halloween Parade and their game show. Horses and riders decked out in their costumes as princesses, Indians, Batman, frogs, Happy Meals from McDonald’s, and the list goes on. For the children’s parade, Angie Long of Laurel won first place as the scariest. She called herself Spider Woman and her horse, Romeo, was decked out with spider webs and a big spider on his head. Travis Rogers, of Millsboro, won second place as the scariest, dressed as Paul Bunyan, walking along with his horse and carrying an ax. Most original first place went to Travis Rogers, Millsboro, dressed as a Frog on a Lily Pad. Second place went to Janel Cubbage, of Roxana, dressed as the Indian “Socka Cloud” with her horse, Luck, painted up with Indian signs. Prettiest second place went to Alyssa Walton of Laurel, dressed as “Barbie” with her horse, Shauna. First place horse costume went to Nicholas Pina, of Tyaskin, Md., for his horse dressed as Batman. Rebecca Blizzard was dressed as Sir Lancelot and there were other children whose names I didn’t get. One was dressed as Dale Earnhard” with his horse dressed as a Chevy, another, who won first place as prettiest, was dressed as a beautiful yellow princess. In the adult parade, scariest was Jennifer Weir, Greenwood, dressed as the Devil and riding her horse Doc, with Ryan Horne, Greenwood, dressed as a priest and walking beside Doc. Most original went to Ashley Mason, Princess Anne, Md.; she and her horse and were dressed as hippies. The prettiest went to Laurel Schappell of Laurel, dressed as an Indian lady. The game show started out with Danielle Sirman riding her horse and carrying the American flag with The Star-Spangled Banner playing. Then the games began. There were a lot of proud owners racing their horses to beat the timer. This was a fun day for all. We can’t forget the great food that was sold in the kitchen and one special lady, Pansy Plummer, who cooked all the pies that everyone raved about.
Birthday wishes to my husband, Mike, on his birthday Wednesday, Oct. 13.
Elaine Carr recently returned from a long weekend in North Carolina where she attended a family reunion. It was very special because a previously unknown cousin was able to meet her father’s kin for the first time.
We send our hopes for a speedy recovery to Andrew Reed, who is a patient at Shock-Trauma in Baltimore.
