I open with a picture, because this post is going to be heavy on the illustrations, light on words. I am one tired blogger, but I hate to miss a day, so here we are on Slacker Saturday. At least I didn’t slack out of being in the parade. I did, however, slack to the extent of riding on the float instead of walking behind it.
For those of you just tuning in, the occasion was the Doodah Parade, part of the Ilion Days festivities. I participated, as I have for the past three years, with Ilion Little Theatre.
I took all my pictures before the parade, as we milled around waiting to get started. It was very warm and humid, but at least it had stopped raining.
Ilion Days’ theme this year was Clowning Around Ilion, so we had a circus-themed float. However, we were invited to dress any way we liked.
I see now I did not get as many pictures or as good pictures as I should have. However, you’ll have that, especially when you’re dealing with me.
I took this group shot, then the guy who drove the truck said I should be in the picture, so he took the picture at the beginning of the post.
Ooh, look at this, I am over 200 words. Maybe I’m not such a slacker after all. Oh, I probably am.
