Houndstooth was correct on commenting.
Oh wow! That is gorgeous! Was that from the reunion you were going to last weekend? Yes, it was.
We had several comments from our Wordless Wednesday picture wondering if it was Ice or Glass?
Our friend Mr. Pip asked.
That's pretty cool - is that ice or glass? Your pal, Pip
Well it was ICE, a beautiful Ice Sculpture created by a local Ice Carver. This is the first time that anything like this had been created for the Ball.
By the end of the night he was a typical basset hound. Drooling and peeing on everything. It was a sad sight to see him slowly melting away.
Here is a picture of the Mandalin that was in the live auction.
Here are a few pictures of the two cakes that they auctioned off that night. You could bid on a cake to win for your table for dessert.
The cakes went for $300.
Here are a few items that I purchased at the auction.
This is a DVD set of the Original People's Choice starring "Cleo" the basset hound. Cleo looks just like this Cleo in the movie. Even though this series was out before I was born, I do remember it because there was also a book that was produced by Little Golden Books called CLEO. I had this book when I was a kid, but lost track of it. I have since purchased the same book off ebay. A lot more than the quarter that my parents paid for it back in the day.
My purchase off the live auction. HDD and I are avid drag racing fans and attend several drag races a year. We are number one fans for Tim Wilkerson, NHRA Funny Car Driver, from Springfield, IL. Well I had to have it!
