Wherever they are headed, I’m going too!
The Wisconsin Humane Society is throwing a fundraiser, “An Old Hollywoof affair.”
Helga, the concierge, gave me three magic treats to offer guests before I joined up with the ball.
“Talon is a healthy peregrine falcon.”
This owl kept turning its head like a screw. Looking at me and looking at who, who, who?
“Coco is a Wisconsin Humane Society alum, adopted last year. Since then he’s visited St. Luke’s Hospital and spoke to the stroke support group. Last year he wore a tweed jacket. This year he has a smoking jacket and a pipe donated from Uhle’s Smoke Shop.” I offer to hold his pipe for him, but he says he doesn’t actually like smoking.
In case you were wondering, he is half siamese and half tabby.
Cora is a “hoary bat.” Hoary bats have a frost tint to their hair.
Meal worms. “Cora is cuddly right now because she just had a big meal. This is what she eats in captivity. In the wild she’d eat things like moths or corn earworm, a significant agricultural pest. She’d be interested in any big winged insect.”
“His real name is Cary Grant.”
Handsome. My kinda guy.
I have always feared tiny dogs, but a lady asked me if I would like to hold her dog and I could not say no.
Everyone wanted their picture taken with this particular dog.
“Would you like to play ‘Blingo?’ It’s $100 a ticket and if you win you get $4,000 jewelry.”
Care for any skewers with dipping sauce?
This dame was a real hoot!
Surveying the silent auction wares that included a palatial four poster bed for a royal creature who should weight eight pounds or less.
Would you like a Garfield poster SIGNED BY JIM DAVIS???? Twelve year old me would!
I was attempting to surreptitiously snap a picture of his Hollywood hair, but he caught me! Generously, this star gave me his autograph with a single glance.
This beautiful person is named Angela.
There were plenty of spangly gowns to gawk upon.
Very gawk worthy.
This woman’s dress epitomized the evening’s theme.
There were many variations of that theme.
Dizzil’d by all the glitter gla gla gla, sparkling along with the wine.
There was lots of petting.
This one fooled me. I thought it was still alive.
The unwavering gaze of this couple transferred an electric current strong enough to thwart my camera’s battery. There are no further pictures of this event.
