EquaFest, Burbank, CA 12/29/2014

On the road again Tuesday Dec. 29 to EquaFest Burbank, CA.

We got to sleep in.  Temperature was 28 in the morning.  We didn’t have to get to the bus until 8:45.  We were the last couple (altho Phil had been there earlier, he waited for me to get our seats).  There are 55 on our Rose Parade Rally.  The bus seat 56.  So we sat at the very end of the bus facing backwards. But we were able to visit with a couple from Wisconsin.  They sold their house and have been full time RVing.

There were many vendors and other exhibits.   
 These men represent the US Cavalry in Bataan, Philippines, 

The father of one of the men.  The father was a Philippine who served in WW I.

The uncle served in WW II.  We have heard so much about the Bataan Death March.

A Catahoola rescue service dog and his handler.
 Interesting to hear the stories of taking the dog out to find lost people.
This dog breed is the state dog of Louisiana.  They  

What a treat to stand next to a Budweiser Clydesdale!!!
