We returned to the den and soon dabber showed up all the way from Colorado Springs. It was good to see the coon again. jeil_kitty eventually showed up as did furrysparkles. I threw about 6 lbs. of sirloin on the grill and the carnivores soon had it all devoured. I have learned from previous meets that you don't bother with veggies. We all then retreated inside to watch "Meet the Feebles" and "The Lion King 1 1/2." It was such a mellow and low-key event that everyone soon just crashed. Dabber and Tenax took me up on the offer to spend the night. Tenax had to stay! We planned our guerrilla fursuiting event for Sunday.
Dabber had kicked around the idea about joining us in fursuiting using my Abbey Raccoon suit. He got cold paws and decided to just leave for the long drive back home. We said our goodbyes and then loaded up the Furmobile for the trip down to Old Town. As I had mentioned in a previous post, Old Town is the historic old downtown plaza which is the tourist draw. Tenax and I suited up in a back parking lot and then hit the square. Woohoo! Lots of tourists with cameras! Lots of kids! It was a great time! Once again Carol made a wonderful handler. She was snapping pictures right and left, both with my camera and the cameras of the people wanting pics. She acted as our mouthpiece, got email addresses of folks wanting pics, and collected tips from folks who gave us money (woohoo!). Here's one pic to whet your appetite.
I should mention that temps were in the upper 80's and we suited for well over an hour. I should also mention the last fun incident of the day. Since Tenax suited up at my den, he wasn't wearing much under his suit. We had planned to go out to eat right after suiting. This would be difficult without pants. So Carol ran over to Walgreens and bought him a pair of shorts decorated with pictures of bottles of hot sauce. He then realized that he also had no shoes. Not to worry! He simply wore his paws into the restaurant. I have a pic of this get-up. I will send it to him and let him decide if it is LJ worthy.
