Shriner Bling (155/365)

2010 06 04 IMG_7454w Lt. Columbo: “I had an uncle who played bagpipes in the shriners band; he couldn't play a note, but nobody could tell the difference.”

"Requiem for a Falling Star." *Columbo*. Perf. Peter Falk. 1973.

TIME:  7:31 PM
PLACE:  West Main St.
SUBJECT:  Ainad Shriner Fez

The Annual Shriner’s Parade was this evening.  Just as we did last year, we walked in it.  Our state representative was in town and we helped him hand out Tootsie Rolls.  DramaQueen did not join us this evening…she had a better offer to spend the night at a friend’s house in another town…we couldn’t compete with that.  So it was just HandsomeHusband, MonkeyBoy, StellaDella and me tonight.  MB walked the entire route and SD rode a little (in a rumble seat of a vintage auto), walked a little -  she LOVES handing out candy - and rode a little more.  It was hot and humid tonight (91 degrees!) and it felt good to climb into our air-conditioned car at the end of the route.

AACCKKK!! I have nightmares where Shriner's are the main characters!

Silly though - they are such an amazing organization!
