Betty's

The world famous "Laughing Horse" Blog Awards Ceremony is again scheduled for the last day of this year. For the first time ever, the event will take place on another continent - North America to be precise. More specifically the spotlight will be upon "Betty's Laughing Horse Tavern" 907 N. Goldenrod Road, Orlando, Florida. This luxury establishment has traditionally always been popular with Hell's Angels and other members of the Floridian motorcycling fraternity but Betty herself has assured the awards organising committee that "her boys" will absent themselves on New Year's Eve so that bloggers from around the world may have the exclusive venue entirely to themselves.

Of course there is plenty of hotel accommodation in Orlando and so attendees will have no problem booking rooms. Please note that there are no rooms available at "Betty's Laughing Horse Tavern".
The committee did consider holding this year's  prestigious red carpet event at "The .Laughing Horse Saloon" in Thompsonville, Michigan but the area is so cold at this time of year that visitors would risk frostbite. In addition, it was noted that the saloon attracts  some gun toting hunters and woodsmen who believe that Barack Obama is Osama bin Laden in disguise and that Adam and Eve really existed. Orlando seemed a much more attractive option.
Sheffield-based graphics company Brightstar have been awarded the widget contract this year. Their brief is to come up with an original design which incorporates a picture of a laughing horse. To be frank, Brightstar have dragged their heels over this job and it was only this morning when they forwarded two possible widget images for consideration. We have to let them know by tomorrow so that the widget design can be rapidly advanced ahead of the great day. Which should we pick? Left or right?

  1. Right for sure, Mr. Pudding. And, I would invite everybody to my mountaintop for the festivities but the expected high temp for all of next week is 12 degrees F. And, I doubt that folks would want to shovel and plow their way on and off the mountain.

    1. How were you on Geography in school Mama Thyme? The distance between Orlando and Denver is 1840 miles or 25 hours of driving. Your mountain eyrie is hardly next door to "The Laughing Horse Tavern"! However, it was a kind thought.

  2. Count me out anything that supports Florida and their record on killing, I do not want to be associated with it.

    1. Well I never thought of you as a scaredy cat Adrian! Just goes to show, you shouldn't judge a book by its cover.

    2. Left is the one. It must be awarded in the northern counties of England to have any merit. Awarded in the USA just demeans the horse.

    3. Is there a whiff of racism in the room?

  3. Much as it hurts me to vote for the right I will make an exception for this prestigious award.

    1. Thank you for pointing this out Graham. You should be able to access the YouTube video now and imagine yourself lining up with the other bikers.

  5. I kinda like the horse on the left...but he could've had a hair cut before he posed; but I guess his unruly styling could be part of his appeal.

    1. Sounds like you like your horses as you like your men Lee!

  6. The horse on the left appears to be in the midst of an all-out belly laugh; the other one looks like he didn't quite get the joke.
    Montana has a Bed 'n Breakfast called The Laughing Horse Lodge that sounds much more my speed. Country folk, doncha know. Couldn't possibly consider Florida - all those humid swamps and 'gators.

    1. The OC (Organising Committee) may have to send a posse to "collect" you Hilly. If you don't struggle you will avoid the handcuffs.

  7. My vote is right (in this case only, I hasten to add!).

    And finally I have something planned for New Year's Eve. So far, I couldn't decide what to do and where to go. Now all I have to think about is what to wear...

    1. As last year's overall winner I hope you realise that you have not been shortlisted for the top prize. The Organising Committee are considering a motion that female bloggers should all wear bikinis at The Awards Ceremony.

  8. It's got to be the right one, YP. My new year's resolution is going to be to get my blog cranked up again, so maybe in 12 months, I might be a contender again ... :)

    1. You may need an engineer to oil your blog and replace rusted parts before it can flow again Jenny!

  9. Good lord those horses are scary. I suspect there are also a lot of people in Orlando who believe what you mentioned about Barack Obama and Adam & Eve!

    1. Do you believe those myths too Steve? Will you still be in Florida on New Year's Eve or off on your honeymoon?
