horse sense

Eight big celebrities are in town this week. My wife spotted them at Food City and called to suggest I drive over to see them too.

The Budweiser Clydesdales made an appearance at the grocery store and with Erin Donovan on today's "Live At Five" today. They'll be in the Gatlinburg Christmas Parade on Friday evening and in the Maryville/Alcoa Jaycees Christmas Parade on Saturday morning.

The Clydesdales are famous for their feather, which is what you call the white hair on their ankles. Their horseshoes made some marks on the parking lot asphalt that I thought might look like a night sky full of stars to my camera phone. I couldn't leave out the official Clydesdales shovel, which apparently has its own golf cart.

Frank, of all the "holiday" commercials on TV, the old Budweiser one with the clydesdales in snow is and will always be my favorite. I took my daughter to the old BiLo near Sutherland a few years ago when they were there. What a grand majestic animal it is. Thanks for sharing the photos, now I feel like the holidays are here.

I remember seeing them at the 1982 World's Fair. I have a picture of them which reminds me again that I need to get those photos scanned and post them.
