A Great Parade!

It was a GREAT parade -- and beautiful, SUNNY weather (blue skies and sunshine). I even got sunburned, believe it or not!

And the event tonight was wonderful! So glad we forced ourselves to go.

We were up by 4:30 a.m. and on site by 5:30 a.m. I was on my feet from 4:30 until we got home around 2:00. I sat down briefly a couple of times, but my feet were killing me by the time we got home. Mostly Marilyn and I were just worn out. It's hard to explain what it's like, being up and on for all those hours.

We took a brief nap from around 3:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m., dragging ourselves up to go to the evening event. When we got home we scarfed leftover hot dogs. Early we'd scarfed Reser's potato salad, too tired to actually fix food.

We watched part of the re-broadcast of the parade tonight and it looked fabulous!

Well, I have a bunch of website stuff I should be doing, but I'm too tired tonight. I'll do it tomorrow.

One last day of events Sunday, and then we're done for 2010.
