I have been at home this weekend but not really. Had our annual Doggie Drag event on Saturday afternoon at Animal Haven. This was our 2nd Annual Doggie Drag and it really went over very well. About 20 dogs and their owners were there along with people just watching the event. Everyone had a great time watching the dogs get all dressed up and parade around. Then we went to dinner and I was back at the LGBT Center in Manhattan for their Halloween Dance which B and I were judges. Today is a clean up around the apartment day, do some shopping and then I have an event to be at tonight as well.

Had a great time in Portland this last weekend. Named my 1/2 Emperor, Rose Emperor XXXIV Hollywood Nightengale Rose Foxx as Emperor XVI 1/2 of New York. The election in Portland drew more than 400 people to the ballot. That has not happened in years in Portland. There was a huge turn-out and all of the candidates should be proud of that.

On Sunday, we had a New York Victory Party for the new monarchs at The Silverado. Everyone had a great time and we raised $500 for PFLAG-Oregon. I had the opportunity to meet many old friends of mine and Nichole commented at the Brunch how much it was a homecoming for me and her. Nichole has been to Portland many times and enjoyed it very much. The youth court was presented a Congressional Proclamation by Nichole citing their years of service to the youth of Portland. The Rosebud and Thorn court have been in Portland for 30 years now. Both candidates for Emperor were former Thorn's of the youth club.

Having a good time just relaxing. Just got back from the gym and was downloading some recent pictures. Have a dinner to attend with friends so have to make this quick. Ok, did not get it done before I had to leave. But I am now back at 7:20pm and will finish it now. It was really nice talking with Katie from Law & Order: Criminal Intent. She was very nice and wanted information about our Night of a Thousand Gowns. She wants to donate a "Day on the Set of Law & Order: CI" to our Silent Auction. Got a very busy week coming up. Have to get ready for our Imperial Photo Shoot on Tuesday. Taking all of our publicity photo's that will be used the rest of our reign. Big deal and lots to put together. Not to mention all of the costumes I have to pull out of storage and get ready to take over to New York.

Spending my first full weekend at home since May. Got the dishes done and ran several errands this morning which included getting my haircut. Just chilling now before dinner. Have a full list of events this next week. It all starts off Monday with the PFLAG NYC cocktail hour and then the annual Barpersons Ball at Tavern on the Green. Should be a fun filled time.
