I Love a Parade
Actually I donít care for parades very
much but somehow Iíve managed to be in about 10 during my life. I donít
think Iíve ever watched one from beginning to end. My uncle was an antique
car buff and we used to do parades in his Model A Ford and my mom was active
with the Newcomers Club in Coronado and I pulled their float several times.
I also drove the float for the Democrats of Coronado Club back in the 70ís.
Coronado Calif. must have had about three democrats and we were all on the
float. (Itís a major military town) Since I voted for Ralph Nader last
election I guess Iím no longer a Democrat, but thatís another story.
My Team Members
I wonít be driving it but I did get to
help decorate 'The Guide Dogs of America' float for the Rose Parade this New
Year. I canít say that my efforts were a major contribution but I did spend
the afternoon with a bunch of women bundling Babyís Breath into bouquets and
trimming the petals off of Blue Statis. Ummm, then I spent the evening
drinking beer with the guys? Ah, never mind!
The original notify list
seemed to have stopped working so I've changed to a new service. Those
already on the list will be receiving an e-mail soon. Sorry for the
