Wise after the event…?


Or if not wise, busy at least. That’s why after the Extravaganza of the Centenary Turra Coo Riot on Saturday it’s taken me till today to let you know how it went.

The day was cold, breezy but dry and sunny. We spent a happy half an hour enjoying listening to the Pipe Band which was EXCELLENT.


There were horses, but no sign of a LIVE coo.  Someone dressed up in a fancy dress coo and of course THE STATUE but no one took up my challenge to recreate the riot in all its glory by actually bringing a live beast to the street party.

IMGP3302Hector tried to entertain the crowds with some acrobatics… the pavement was too cold for his little paws (!?!) and he kept trying to climb up for a better view of the rioting primary school children who did a sterling job of their ‘play’ despite the buffeting of the wind in the microphones. IMGP3295

All in all it was a grand day out and the dogs were happy to sleep on the sofa on their return. Job done. There’ll be no more riots for another 100 years then? Not round here anyway. IMGP3305
