I don't know if this bit of silliness is American, international or what. Have you ever seen these tiny rotund dolls with fluorescent fright wigs, sometimes nude, known as troll dolls? You can buy about a zillion varieties of them on Amazon. One group of women chose this as their theme for the Idiotarod. They looked like pregnant streakers on a bad hair day.
STL DPB will be on automatic mode the rest of the week. Posts with Idiotarod photos will be uploaded in advance and I won't be able to leave comments. I've got a ton and a half, possibly a ton and three-quarters, of work to do. Friday is a travel day. Fresh posts and comments will resume Saturday night (maybe) or Sunday morning (for sure) our time from Tamarindo, Costa Rica.
