I was out running errands this morning. Very slowly because I have vertigo once again. le sigh. Anyway, I was driving to the butcher shop for Groverthewonderpup food ingredients and I was stopped at a light by a police officer in a reflective vest. At first I was worried that it was for something horrible. You know how hideous the world is these days. And, getting hideouser by the minute.
Anyway, I was sitting thinking “huh”, when the policeman closed down the intersection. Shortly thereafter I heard loud music and saw a convertible with a small girl sitting in the back waving at everyone. After the car, followed a group of teenage girls in black and orange outfits waving pompoms and I knew it was the homecoming parade.
As you can see, I am about 5 cars back, but I could see enough to enjoy their infectious excitement and just plain energy. There were two wee ones (about 3 or 4) near me jumping up and down with excitement. It lasted about 15 minutes and my spirit was lifted by it. What a treat.
