Scooting on the 4th of July!

Thursday, July 04, 2013

Today I went to the 4th of July parade in my town! I put on BLUE jean shorts, a RED t-shirt with a WHITE overshirt. When I got to the parade, there was a man selling flags and such. I got a visor with flags on it, an a flag to put on the scooter!
The parade started at 10am and was still going on when I left at noon! LONG parade! I was lucky to find a nice spot to watch that was in the shade, but it was still hot! My favorite things in the parade were the Scottish bagpipe bands, a horse drawn carriage with the biggest horse I have ever seen, an old fashioned fire engine from the fire museum and a large Chinese dragon carried by 22 people!
It was a nice way to get out of the house! I missed the fireworks last night, but that is okay! I can watch them tonight from the room of my building!

HAPPY 4th to all! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I LOVE bagpipes... there is something about them that makes me happy when I hear them play. So glad you had fun at the parade... I need to do that next year. We used to always go to the parade when I was younger, but we have not done that for many a year... I did get to fireworks and just loved them- we actually went and sat down in the field behind the school in Catonsville and it was lovely...Glad you celebrated with gusto..

    Being a Scot living in Tasmania when I hear the bagpipes I get the shivers. When I was home once I told my Mum this, she said I hate them,. Mum when you live away from them and you hear them it is my blood. Every year we get the Edinburgh Tattoo here I never miss it and boy I does pull at the heart strings. Not that I would ever want to go back to Scotland to live
I great day to spend out not only for the fresh air to watch a parade it makes your heart happy

    You are such a dear, Scooter! So glad - it sounds like you really had a great time. I haven't been to a parade in ages. Hope you get a nice view of the fireworks!

    It sounds as if you had a very good day! I didn't get to see a parade and will miss the fireworks but it is all here in my heart! We did spend the evening with family at a picnic in the park and had a grand time!
