Everyone here appears to have a camera and using it for protection. Mr & Mrs LZ (on left) have just arrived and to make sure they don't get too close, everyone held their camera up. The other five in view are Janell, Nora, JD, Rachel and the REV.
The rear view of the float just before we begin the parade. The top poster on left is Rachel's and on the right is LZ Bloggers.
It was the design of Nora to collect food for the local food pantry during the parade. We notified the locals through the paper of our plan. We had street walkers collect the items from folks along the parade route.
Thru the magic of computers, this is Nora with the loot we collected during the parade. I put the groceries in the pic (they were 'cut out' of my van, and placed here, on the float, beside Nora. This is the photo that appeared in the local paper the next week with a nice write up.
It's time to load up and go. Everyone was to find a chair. On Left: Janell, Jerry (who looks like he's getting ready to throw Jim under the trailer and steal his chair, Mrs and then Mr LZ, Jim in red stripes, Rachel and JD's dress. (I'm assuming she was still in it at this point.)
I would like to have included a few parade pics but they'll be next time. I don't trust Blogger. All of this could simply vanish and in a flash be on it's way to internet heaven. So 'Publish Post' is my choice.
