Independence Day of India

The women and traditional outfits of India are gorgeous!
Many dressed up to commemerate

The celebration at the North Austin Events Center included music, singing and dance!
Austin's Mayor Lee Leffingwell spoke to the crowd, and a minute of silence to respect the victims of the Sikh Temple massacre in Wisconsin was observed... 

Many thanks to Austin Christian Fellowship of India, as well as Finel and his lovely family for including me!!

Oh, and I made a bunch of Octopus hats too!!  :)

The Dog Days of August....

  should be renamed to 
"Octopus Days of August"!

After all, octopuses swim!
Well so do dogs, but the octopus actually lives in the water.
Stays nice and cool...
Which we should all do in the summer heat of August!

I'll be in the pool!!!  :))
