Could this be what happens when you park your car in the yard?

That Dog Do Walk

Connor and Biscuit Jordan

One of the best reasons to organize a dog park for pets and people is so we can all get more exercise. Newcomer Juliana Hoffpauir has already gathered close to 1000 signatures on a petition to open a dog park and started a blog about her efforts.

Madison, Wisconsin is the most walkable city in America and it has four off-leash areas. What size of a city is Madison? Madison has 223,389 folks and Shreveport has 200,199. But of course to get a complete look at the population in SB Land we have to add Bossier City and that brings our number to 256, 661.

Something RRBJ has found interesting since discovering Madison, it only has one community recreation center. Shreveport has 17 and Bossier City has two. The parks division of Madison also maintains over 260 parks, one public swimming pool, 10 beaches, 4 golf courses. In the winter, the staff maintains outdoor ice rinks and cross-country ski trails. It seems to be a community geared to moving and not sitting in a building. Perhaps building a dog park will dance SB Landers towards healthier lifestyles.

Dome O Books

The 21st Annual Centenary Book Bazaar is this weekend. Take your cash or checks to the Centenary Gold Dome Friday and Saturday.

Sale Hours:

Friday 4:30 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Saturday 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. The sale closes for thirty minutes and reopens with all books half price from 1 p.m. 'til 3 p.m.

Note the earlier start on Friday. That's because the Centenary Muses have 10,000 more books for sale than they did last year. Books can be snatched up for as little as a quarter.

Here's what RRBJ posted about the sale last year in a personal blog, Crazy in Shreveport .

Thank you to Calamitylaine for the use of her picture Choices.

Picture of the Day

The mind set of summer wraps with this Labor Day weekend. Did you accomplish everything on your hot weather list? Not to worry. It really doesn't cool off until November in SB Land and RRBJ has even been Christmas shopping in shorts in December. Viva la South!

Thank you to trudeau for the use of quenching the dog days in shreveport! Have you read Robert Trudeau's Shreveport blog? Imagine the lovely world we'd live in if the mainstream media covered SB Land culture the way this man does.
