We had a perfect Fourth of July parade with all the proper small town things.
We had veterans of all ages and kinds of service (whose pictures I don’t have because we were all clapping and cheering for them).
We had the volunteer Fire Department marching in crisp blue dress uniforms. ( For whom we also clapped, but I was not wiping away tears so I was able to take pictures.)
We had the vintage fire trucks.
We had the fire department’s dog.
We had the vintage tractors.
Lots of them.
We had the Giant Pink Metal Pig.
As one does.
We had the Boy Scouts.
We had the horses.
And the goats.
And the politicians with goats.
We had the marching bands.
And the giant shoe.
And, of course, we had the obligatory singing dog.
A splendid time was had by all.
