Telluride July 4 2008
The streets were crowded, the town was excited. It's always an eccentric parade.
It started out with thrilling low level flyovers, first by a pair of WW2 P51s, then unnamed National Guard planes in sequence, voom, wow, amazed they even appeared in my photo. I scream when they fly over, it's such a thrill.
But what was with all the baby floats this year, and the total absence of funny or satiric floats except for one? Young couples in Telluride are reproducing like it's 1949.
The ostrich bikes were attractive, even when unoccupied.
When you're in the second row, sometimes you see things you wish you hadn't.
Like this view of Texas...
This poor guy didn't get to ride with his buddies.
This was the ONLY funny parade entry, and it was mourning the death of Bozo the Clown.
We had lunch in the park and then came home. Molly was locked in the house, and the fireworks won't start until almost 10. How was your fourth?
