Doc Holliday Was Here

We spent this afternoon in old downtown Denison.  

We were there for

We watched a parade

laughed at this guys goofing off with his beard,

and voted for our favorite beard/mustache.  The winners are l for most unique combination, crowd favorite, longest beard, best overall.

Several people dressed for the occasion.

We stopped to watch the local artisans,

perused the store fronts, 

and noticed some old signs.  (American Pickers, eat your hearts out!)

Every western town worth beans has a Realto theater.

This one also had an Ivanhoe.  This is a town with culture!

I liked this store--Two Chicks and Some Paint (plus decor).  The little sign to the left of the door says "Doc Holliday Painted Here."

 Everyone revealed his/her true identity.

We oohed over our first close-up of a great Dane.

Stopped for a haircut

or two,

(had to do it--blue tongues are always funny!)

and enjoyed some playable street art.

Back home Grandpa and the girls relaxed with some tv.

A boy, a stick, a mud puddle.  Nuff said.

We were treated to a fashion show.  Ava dressed with graceful elegance and Emma showed off  her inimitable style.

We topped off the day with a yummy grilled steak dinner cooked by Jr and Brandey, then a movie with popcorn.
Only one more day of fun.  I wonder what we'll think of to do next.
