I'm still in a fog over the passing of our German shepherd, Rommel, and really not in a mood to blog. Other bloggers have done a wonderful job highlighting their year in photos and selecting their best photo of 2011, but I'm just really not in the mood to do so. I also didn't realize that the Rose parade isn't until MONDAY because of some rule that there's no parade on Sunday when New Year's Day lands on a Sunday!!!????
The 2012 Tournament of Roses, themed "Just Imagine ..." will also be held on Monday - the 18th time the parade won't take place on New Year's Day since it falls on a Sunday.
The "No Sunday" rule was first adopted in 1893 "to avoid frightening horses tethered outside local churches and thus interfering with worship services," according to Tournament of Roses lore.
