And the 125th Rose Parade is History!

So I grew up in Eagle Rock ... live in Altadena and work in Pasadena. The Rose Parade is just what we DO on New Year's Day here.
One of the local equestrian families live on our street so we watch the horses and ropers practicing all year. ...We drive by the La Canada volunteers building their float on our way to and from the grocery store all week.

And this year we had an All Saints great-granddaughter (via Alma Stokes) in the Rose Court; Jon Bruno and Julie Campoy riding on the City of Hope Float; two local men making the parade theme "Dreams Come True" include the dream of marriage equality by getting married on a float AND Vin Scully as Grand Marshall.

It may get better than this ... but I don't know how!

Happy New Year, everyone!

The only thing I don't like about religion is it's so boring.
Really, really boring.


Quite possibly the least germane comment ever ... but Happy New Year, anyway.
