And of course

I have heard rumors that Alfred is getting ready for the parade.


Living on the parade route

One year, we planned to visit grandpa in Liberty NY on the 4th. We spend the morning getting ready, then got into the car, ready for the trip.

As I left my driveway, the parade was not yet there, but it was gettinging close. Gesturing forcefully, Chief Guthrie insisted that we return to our driveway, and would not consider my appeal, even though we could have headed toward Main Street without interfering with the parade.

That year we were a literally a captured audience. After that, we are more aware of the need to consciously consider timing of escape if we need to go somewhere. It is always interesting to watch the reaction of our dog to the sounds of the parade as it starts to go past our house.


If you like signs

I believe people are being encouraged to bring Health Care protest-type signs to this year's parade.
