Who’s up for CallyFest #4 this year? Our virtual festival was great last year. Thinking about mid-March during  the March Madness Tournament.

Can’t beat down home cooking on the beach Ray!  Beans and cornbread by the campfire. Thanks! It’ll be a popular spot for sure.

Pick, that should be this years slogan.  Crabs being the least of problems from past festivals. Ha! Good one sir!

Hey, folks.  This dog rode home with us last years and he I still have him.  He is one crabby, grumbling S.O.B.  I plan to bring him back to the fest and hope he is reunited with his rightful owner.  Or Rick Sundberg. Either one.

Unc! Where did you find Beauregard??!

Ray, please, please send me our address and I will ship your dog to your.  I can bearly stand him at this point.

 OK, thanks, Uncle John! You didn't happen to see Thibodaux, did ya?

Dat's one of dem  LGBT  dogs .. it's.......   "Bi  Polar "

Uncle, this is for a fact Ray’s dog. He entered it in the ugly dog contest and failed to pick him/her (I’m not looking) up. I put it in your camper by mistake. Loved sardines, lots of them.  Ray, Beauregard is especially nippy around seals. The sign at the nude beach said Bare All! Not All Bear!

Not sure of the owner .. but i think i found his parents .

Ray, is this beast Thibodaux?  We couldn’t allow this Rino  anteating cat whatever into the ugly dog contest. I had it on a long leash on the southern fence where people were sneaking in.  Please claim this at the lost and found center. Another sardine eater. Hardly enough left for a decent batch of sardine ice cream, but I’m not complaining. 

That may or not be Ray's dog, but it's not the big white dog I brought home - BY MISTAKE- last year.   . 

The one I have is a crabby, growly leg humper and he stinks and eats us our of house and home.  If Ray will give me his address, I will ship him off to him COD.  (Don't mention that COD part to Ray.)
