Bring Cup Day
Elizabethe loves Slurpees. I enjoy them too, but not like my wife. I saw on Facebook that it was “Bring Your Own Cup Day” at 7-11. Because I needed a break from work, I knew I could draw Elizabethe away from her fairy house project with the temptation of a Slurpee.
“Hey, I saw on Facebook that it is ‘bring your own cup day’ at 7-11 for Slurpees,” I said as I entered her room.
“Are you saying you want to go get Slurpees?” she asked with suspicion in her voice.
I told her I would take her, but we need to grab big mugs. She questions if there was a size limit. I assured her that our niece posted on FB showing the BUCKET she used for her Slurpee.
It worked. As a result she took a break from working on fairy houses. Of we went to Farmington (the nearest 7-11) to get a BIG Slurpee.
There is much software preparation for my Route 66 trip. This involves running every software package, clicking on Help->Check for Updates, and updating them. Fortunately, few of them needed updates. I will repeat this next weekend.
It hit me today, I should take some templates with me. It could be fun to build some quick graphic images. I have a template for a retro looking menu. That could come in handy… What’s on the menu for today?
My biggest fear is the video aspect. I’d like it to be all polished and clean, but I don’t have time to become that skilled at videography. Photography is our main focus.
Wayne County Fair Parade
Hmmm… if you were a senator, congressman or assemblyman, wouldn’t you want to be at every county fair in your district?
I find it very disconcerting that on a non-election year, they were conspicuously absent.
Hey, that makes it easy to know who not to re-elect!
The parade in general felt smaller this year. I expected to see a high school marching band, or two. Again, absent.
Other than the size, it was a fun parade. I love a parade. If I had my way, there would be one for every holiday.
Our Chief of Police in Palmyra
Our County Sheriff
They parade always starts with the VFW post presenting colors as they walk down the street. I stood there with my hand over my heart, and one of the Vets, as he passed, turned his head and said, “Thank You.” It nearly made me cry.
Our Chief of Police and Sheriff then follow (see above.) As I said, “Hi, Sherm! Hi, Barry!”, a friend turned and asked, “Do you know all of the law enforcement around here?”
It’s a small town. What can I say. It’s also a small county. Plus, I enjoy getting to know folks. And, both of these men are of the highest integrity. It’s part of what makes living here great.
Man and Grandson Enjoying the Parade
She is sure giving me a cold stare.
When this truck full of zombies drove buy I noticed as soon as I lifted my camera this young lady giving me the if-looks-could-kill stare. Not everyone on the truck was so in-character. I think this is my favorite picture of the day.
Patriotic – Every Parade Should be Patriotic
I bet next year’s parade will have a whole bunch of politicians. After all, even years are election years. Next year are state elections in New York.
Next year I think as these politicians walk up to shake my hand I’ll say, “You should have been here last year if you wanted my vote.”
Ooo… yea… I like that. I’m going to do it.
