Davey B's 2013 TravelingDog Calendar

It's that time of year again where family and friends are given the annual TravelingDog Calendar.  Each year has had a theme and this years is Luther & BuddyJack at the US & Canadian capital buildings.  Most had domes, as you may have seen in my previous posts.  Some where nothing more than buildings looking like libraries.  Everyone of them offered a history of the area they where built in and the persons who reside there, past and present.  Lu & BJ may be hard to find in a few, but they are there either on the steps, the lawns or even waiting for a bus.

It has been great to see all of them.  It has also been quite the journey, for between all of the TravelingDogs we have been through 49 states.  You can't drive to Hawaii.  You can read the history of the TravelingDogs here.

I always ask people if they are in the calendar.  I will soon update other pages with the lists of birthdays and holidays.  You may be surprised to see your name.  Oh, and I sometimes make mistakes.  If you don't see your name, let me know.  I'll be using these lists for the 2014 calendar, unless the world ends on 12/21/12.  See you on the road!

Provincetown Lobster Tree Lighting

The Provincetown community once again join hands and cheer for the lighting of the Lobster Pot Tree.  I posted about this annual tradition last year and was pleasantly surprised that it became one of my top hits in my humble history of this blog.

I hear that the crowd was the biggest ever and that the tradition started by Julian Popko (contributor of atttached video) continues to morph into a larger spectacle with more than 3400 lights.  The tree is made up of 112 lobster pots, 58 buoys, 46 fake lobstyers and 120 bows.

A Very Merry Holiday Season to the folks in Ptown and to the readers of AmosTravelingDog.
