Couldn't have asked for a prettier fall day for Kitty Claws to visit the University of Southern Indiana and her friend Archie.
Archie? Archibald T. Eagle to be exact.
Kitty made lots of new friends today. Do you recognize any of them?
I think EVIE from Keep Evansville Beautiful is Kitty's favorite new friend.
Lots of human pals, too ...
Happy birthday, Archie!

... every day of Happy Halloween Weekends.
Sort of humorous that our pirate in Graveyard Smash is played by a fellow named Sharky.
Dude can dance, too.
Sharky and his cadre of fellow performers will continue to delight audiences for another two weekends during Happy Halloween Weekends.
Come to think of it, a pirate fits right in here in the town of Santa Claus. After all, pirates have also adopted the catchphrase, "Ho-ho-ho!" right?
Other themed shows during Happy Halloween Weekends are Pumpkin Up, a Halloween Magic Show with Don Baggett, Saturday's Halloween Lasor Light Show, and the Kitty Claws Dance Party. Please check here for the full schedule; once you've seen a show here, you'll be ... wait for it ... hooked!

Frieda is in the news again.
Rich from the Evansville Courier & Press wrote a wonderful feature story about her a number of years ago. Ever since then, he asks about her each time we talk.
A week or so ago, Rich came up to visit with Frieda again and catch up with her. He wrote about her in today's paper.
Frieda grows orchids, too.
It took her years to coax these beauties into bloom. But she never gave up.

Did anyone else grow up watching the Lawrence Welk Show?
My strongest recollection of that show is how the musicians all smiled -- even while playing their instruments.
My dad would marvel (okay, he made fun) at the delirious grins on every last one of the musicians as they played. (How in the world do you smile while playing trumpet, clarinet, or flute? Somehow, they did it.) We laughed at the thought of Mr. Welk hollering at them in his thick accent to, "Smile! Smile!"
This photo that Lori sent me of Craig cleaning up a ... um ... HoliMess made me think back to that show.
This next week we have special Hospitality Training for all of our Hosts and Hostesses.
I wonder if we're planning to show any clips of the Lawrence Welk Show ... or maybe if just threatening to do it would do the trick.
