Do you think there's such a position as Royal Rodent Roadkill Remover

You can tell for sure that this photo wasn't snapped on the outskirts of Rockford. For one thing, we don't have manicured lawns running alongside our back country roads. Secondly, if this was a local county road, there would be dead raccoons and skunks littering the entire length of this road.

That must have been a long ride out to the castle. If the queen is anything like Mocha-momma, she probably had to make quite a few pit stops on the way.


  1. Hey! We were there this summer. Must have been some other road though, because ours didn't have horses.

  2. That looks more like Delano to me.

  3. do the riders in rockford wear garishly ridiculous costumes as well?

    i think not.

  4. We do; the only difference is we wear baseball caps instead of that goofy looking headwear.
