We had people walking along and collecting canned goods that the crowd had brought to donate to the local food pantry. As I remember Janell and Ralph and Nora were usually out walking and collecting. I believe these pictures are mostly from the lens of Ralph's camera. That would explain why he isn't in them. If you remember others out walking you can let me know. Oh yeah, I just remembered my grandson Colton walked the entire route throwing out candy.
That's me behind the wheel and my iced tea on the dash. That mug is getting worn out so I probably need to check into a hospital again so I can get another free mug. It takes a great deal of skill to pull a float very slowly so I took on the air condit...er responsibility. Mr JD is on the right taking a pic and Desiree is walking on the left of the pic. Just left, around the next corner, is the Morrow clan and guests of Blogstock not riding on the float.
That's Char of Ralph fame with the camera, the little girls in the red polka dots are grandaughters of mine. They belong to son Dan with camera in front and DIL in blue blouse behind the girls. She is incubating Georgia in this pic.
Other son Tom is on right. We can't see his wife here but we can see 'His son, Hudson', who is being held by Marilyn. My mil is standing in white blouse between Dan and Tom. The rest are mostly my brothers and wives.
We all came back to this house (my mil's house) after the parade where we schooled up and went out to the winery. Next will be two or three pics of the winery and surrounding area and then we'll finally go out the farm to finish up. Thanks for sticking with me here.
