Halloween Parade 2006

It’s that time again! Like every year, I will be drumming in the Halloween Parade with the Manhattan Samba Group. This is us last year, and that’s my friend Ellen kissing my friend Ronnie. I’m going to try to remember to take a picture from inside the parade, marching down 6th Avenue, but I always forget. Which is a good thing really, because it means I am having too much fun drumming. A couple of the cold case detectives are going to be working at the parade again this year, but I have never once spotted them. Maybe this year will be the year! They look so cute in their uniforms.

(Which reminds me, the New York Magazine piece is in next week’s issue.)
