Memorial Day Parade Preparation (actually the day before)

You think that these big old trucks get cleaned by themselves? This was a three-man effort today.

Once you get one clean, you need to go for a test ride, and make sure everything is ready to go....and what a gorgeous afternoon for a jaunt around town!

After making it back up the hill (always a major concern in a machine which is EIGHTY FOUR YEARS OLD, you need to take pictures with your family and friends, because you never know when it may be your last year playing with Bob's old toy.......

Then it was time for some supper, some stories, and a great campfire in the firepit, with marshmallows the size of tennis balls, graham crackers and chocolate......

It was a beautiful day from start to finish for us, this Sunday before Memorial Day, 2011. There was a sad note though. A family here in Sharon had a major house fire this evening, and their home looks to be a total loss. We all feel badly for them and their loss. Hopefully, they will bounce back from this quickly.
