I love a parade but I didn't expect to be in one today, but I was.
Rick's duelling blog is here.
The Mamie (one of our native Catalan women who is always in an apron. Despite looking like a bag lady and lack of education, she's a writer, photographer and has a snazzy white cell telephone). She waved to us to hop on the little train that was part of the Carnival Parade...so we did.
The kids faces as they watched the floats. Some costumes were homemade, others bought, which makes the man at the party store happy. He said that he has sold over 1200 this year.
