I went to the Veteran’s Day Parade up 5th Avenue. As many pictures I’ve included here, many many more didn’t come out well. I really have to get my camera in for repair. Camera troubles aside, it was a perfect day for a parade, and there was a great turn-out, thank God. I remember not a few heart-breaking years when there was almost no one there to cheer on the vets.
The guy on the left was my parade crush. I always develop a crush on someone at the parade. He was wearing a wedding ring, so it was just a fantasy crush! But I talked to him briefly. A reporter was asking him questions, but she didn’t follow up on some of his most interesting answers. So I delved a little deeper myself, and his responses gave me an idea for a book.
Here is my parade-crush forsaking me for the pretty girl dressed in a flag and draped in a flag.
Note to self: Do not mess with the 25th Infantry Division.
