    My towns Christmas parade is tonight.
    The best part is that they stage it on my street. I get to walk down my street and see everything, no going into town to stand in crowds and I can carry my drink with me.
    They're starting to line up now.
    See you all in a little while.

    Well, I got to go out and visit with all the folks in the parade. I have to say, it was a pretty good evening.
    There were some great floats, some great tow vehicles, and of course, some beautiful girls.
    We had a '66 Pontiac conv., a '54 New Yorker station wagon, a '58 Rambler woody wagon towing a varnished teardrop camper, and a half dozen restored Farmall tractors (1 diesel).
    But I think the highlight had to be.......Ta-Da....the women's roller derby team.
    They were right in front of my house. Let me tell you, it's a good day when you get to see a women's RD team practice in your front yard for an hour.
    Good times, good times.
    Oh, I also got to help set up the American Legion truck. Imagine a bunch of old guys with blown out knees climbing in a nd out of pick up trucks to set up flag displays.
    I didn't even mind that I was helping squids and ground pounders. ;)
    It doesn't make that much difference when you get to a certain age.

    No, no pics. I usually don't carry my phone unless I'm in the car and I have no idea where my camera is. :eek:
