The Great Parade

Hello handsome...

It's time for some excitement.  Not too much excitement.  I don't want to hear the sound of thundering hooves as you gallop off into the distance.  Just a bit of excitement.  A change of pace from riding the waterways with your good buddy Ted.

This is what I have in mind:  The Delaware All Horse Parade on September 11th.  This is a special year as the parade is honoring the 10th Anniversary of 9/11.  How better to honor during the parade than decked out in our Fourth of July garb?  Minus the tank top.  I will not be showing floppy arm fat to the estimated 50,000 spectators.

Delaware is 2 hours from home.  Close enough for an easy trip, but if we're naughty or have some silly moments, there will be nobody there who knows us to carry tales.  Last year there were over 550 horses traversing a 3 mile Parade Route.  That's encouraging.  Surely we can't be worse than 550 other horses.

I love the idea of this parade.  I don't know if I will love the reality; but I'm willing to find out.
