Rose Parade Preparation

Happy new year. The Rose Parade always marks the beginning of the new year for me. Although we did not camp out on the street to watch the parade march down Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena, the boys, my parents and I checked out some float decorating on the 30th.

The hustle and bustle of the professional float decoraters.

Flowers ready to go on a float, resting on a dormant float frame.

Some girls and women carefully preparing flowers for the float.

The floats delighted all, especially my youngest son. He kept sliding past the barricades to get a closer look. His curiosity was so earnest, even security was tickled by his enthusiasm and let his multiple breeches slide.

The Goodyear blimp passing over our house new year's day on its way to the Rose Bowl to watch hometown USC beat Penn State.
