this is when I know we STILL live in a great country. Great pictures and it looks like you had a wonderful Fourth. Your parade looks better than the parade on the Island.. but we had the unfit belly dancers! Happy MM!
You really captured the beauty and spirit here. Didn't know you had a lake!Happy Mute Monday!
Nothing like a hometown parade on the 4th to celebrate independence. I still go to the parade in the town I grew up in (it's only a few miles away) because of the memories and a chance to see old neighbors. We stake out the same spot every year (as does everyone else in town) and watch the bikes, little league, string bands, floats, veterans and fire trucks. This years was the longest (meaning most participants) that I can remember. And the kids come away with as much candy as they do on Halloween!Happy MM!
How do we get back to that place?Is that Trout in the side-car?
boxer: we did. very low key. V and i decided we were going to make a float for next year. he needs to brush up on his hendrix version of star spangled banner. welll have him in the back of the truck wailing with the little battery amp. and then i will make some kind of arty decoration. and a few people at the fireworks said theyd make a float too. they need us.troll: i dont have a lake. blue ridge does. its in the east side of the county -im westside. they get the lake, i get the cohuttas. comes out even, i think ;-)buzz: its so cool -anybody can be in this parade. so you get lots of tractors and horses and dogs. love it!! like i told boxer -we are going to be in the parade next year. gnome: i know! i dont know. not trout. the spokesdog for second chance animal rescue.

Small towns are filled with such happiness and beauty. :)
What a hoot! My old (small) town in California used to have some great parades. The ones where everyone in town is IN the parade. I love that. :) And I want a cherry limeade, please. Thank you. xox Pam
Americana at it's freshest! Loved your post of the local loyals, just priceless. I will be interested to see if this event spawns new Americana themed art. Really like the idea of you, V, Trout, et al participating in next years go 'round. Errrrrrrrrr, Trout does not look overjoyed to be the Zucchini Muse. The garden looks awesome...are those bean vines really swagging from pole to pole? How does the fresh from your garden food TASTE? What have you enjoyed thus far from the garden?
Love this! I could almost feel myself there, hot sun on my head, cold beer in my hand, a big smooch for da pit bull dawg. They VERY American. And independent.
That was awesome to look through. :)
LOVE those small town parades! Great faces; great doggies; great spirit. Happy MM!
