This Year's Truck Parade

There were so many trucks and exciting emergency vehicles this year at the corner in Phenix.
A helicopter was hovering over the trucks. That added even more interest to the parade.
The down side was less candy. In years past everyone stood a fair chance of being pelted with at least one piece of candy. Not so this year; it was slim pickin's. Probably there was a law suit over a head injury or lost vision due to the exuberant tossing of handfuls of candy.
The good thing is that everyone in Charlotte County is doing something to prevent cancer. No, not eating healthy, or exercising, or quitting smoking, or anything like that. But they're driving their trucks to get money to cancer research, and I hope it finds us a cure.

  1. Somehow I ended up with a mental picture of all the truck drivers smoking and stuffing their faces with fast food as they drove in the parade.
