The people assemble, waiting for the parade to begin. In a tiny town such as this it sometimes is a return to see old friends and family, or just relive old memories. I love a good parade, no matter the size. It shows civic pride and keeps the towns alive. Children hoped to get lots of candy and I stooped to pick up a few pieces to pass on to the children near me. I laughed when I asked one girl if she was going to eat it all,and she offered me some of her goodies.A lady asked me about what I was doing with all the pictures and I shared a few with her.We had a good chat and found some interests that both of us had. The beauty of the day and good thoughts still survive, pushing through the prairie blooms, and across the land on a gentle prairie breeze.
A grand start with a color guard
Rubber was attached to the steel wheels to make it easier on the roads
This is not just a guy thing. I think I may have to paint the old Ford, they all look so nice.
