Since the Portland Rose Festival Grand Floral Parade just passed under my window, I’ll share the view with you.

Nice as this parade was, I would rather see a parade of Republicans to the unemployment office on November 5.

  1. I have never been a big parade fan.  I think as a kid I became really afraid of them.  But there are two parades that I could cope with . . . a parade of Republicans to the unemployment office on November 5, and a parade of the Conservatives to the unemployment office in May 2015!

  2. My dad was military and my son was both an Eagle Scout and NROTC, my daughter drill team, so I am just bit passed the point of loving parades a few too many, I guess.  Though I am always happy for the young people that have the opportunity to show their stuff in a city wide parade.

    Thanks TC

  3. Living in the city of the REAL "Rose Parade"**  I love a good parade and even get teary-eyed, seeing the bands, the flags, cute kids, etc.  It's hard to be depressed watching a happy parade!

    (**sorry, Tom, but we're rather proud of our production down here..  :-)   )  

  4. I enjoy parades as long as I don't have to be there and swelter or freeze.  I am shallow enough to prefer the big prooduction pieces like floats and balloons to the groups.  I admire the work and crafting that goes into them, so maybe I'm not totally shallow.

  5. I was in a marching band in high school, yes I was a nerd.  But, I still love parades.  Sorry, TC, I have never had one beneath my bedroom window.  Good pics, though.

  6. Thanks all.
