    Mac, bring something that you like. We have the usual stuff so need filler. Have a couple fruit trays and a veggie tray coming. See you then.

    I got the missus making up a big bowl of her awesome pasta salad for lunch. We'll be on hand with a few people to man the troop seats, too.

    Didn't get time to wash the truck, so it's a little mossy. Runs good though, and we'll dress it up a bit anyway.

    Thank you to all that were able to attend. We had 16 vehicles in the parade this year including the PBR and its tow truck. Probably 35 or 40 people at the house for lunch. We received the best historic entry in the parade. They were desperate for candidates. We lined the vehicles up by age. Only issue was I had a neighbor that is a truck driver, drive the M923. I think he pulled up on the range lever when he was supposed to hit the park brake, so when everyone else headed out, he was stuck in neutral. We got him going but he was a few units back. I had fun riding the 1942 Huffman military standard bicycle, but could sure feel it the next day. If you have been thinking about this event. Keep it in mind for next year. We have probably been doing it for 22 years or so.
