It's 9:55 and I just got home from our annual family reunion (Mrs. FC's side) and the Chasco Boat Parade. The rest of my crew are spending the night down there so they can attend the concert and ride the fair rides.
Long time readers may remember seeing similar posts about this time of year. We all head to my brotherinlaw Johnny's riverside house to eat, enjoy each other's company, and watch the boat parade.
This year, Mike somebody from the Tampa Bay Bucs football team stopped by Johnny's to visit after his Grand Marshall of the parade duties were over.
(Laura of Vitaminsea, are you getting this?)
I did not have a clue who he was and took a hell of a lot of ribbing about that, but they are used to me in this family, so it was all in good fun.
The girls knew so I got a pic of them posing with him. There's Kate, Emma, and best buddy everrrrrrrrrrrrrr Corinne with big smiles.
The parade was lots of fun as usual. The theme was Hollywood.
Some of the floats were really clever.
I have signed on to be a crew member on the pirate ship for next year. Look closely at the crew.
The canoe float tipped over right in front of our dock when the man on board leaned as he tossed beads at the dockside kids.
We went down and helped them offload their stuff and refloat their canoe.
No harm done.
This is "Weezy". She's my niece Sara Beth's new yellow lab puppy. She was the real star of the day.
She stole my hat and my heart.
