Mustang Homecoming Parade

Rental Car in the snow!Saturday, October 10, 2009

 I snuck out of the Gala, and got to my car, there was a small layer of snow, how quaint!!  I had to drive back to the hotel in a snow storm, No Problem!  I have driven in snow before.   YEA, RITE, frozen tundra snow is different, it doesn't go away overnight!!


SMSU Parade SignI get out to my car and it is covered in snow!! YIKES!   However, I was told to be ready for a 9:30am pick up because David Danahar had invited me to participate in the Homecoming Parade.   NOW, that is WAY COOL!

I think they had a private meeting and decided that it would be best if I didn't drive!!!

SO, they enlisted this nice little Vette and it's owner Jerry to chauffer me in the parade!!

Thanks again to David and Cecelia Danahar for such a great honor to participate in the parade!!!  It was definitely one of the highlights of my trip!

David got me a box of Mardi Gras beads and we were off!!

I got Jerry into the spirit of Mardi Gras, we threw beads out of both sides!!!

At the end of the parade I asked David if we could go back to the start and do it again.

No sense of humor!!

OK, now back to work, I have to serve several dishes in 4 hours!!

And YES, in the SNOW!!

NOW everyone's attentions turn to Football!,

Well First ya gotta have a Tailgate Party!
