Rockin' Christmas Parade

Good morning all! 

Wrote two posts yesterday, but didn't get anything posted.

Well, actually, I wrote one and went to post it and apparently I hit the wrong button.  It disappeared, never to be seen again.  I guess it's floating out there in cyberspace somewhere.  Who knows, it may show up ten years from now on some supertechno-apparatus.  Seriously, do you ever wonder where stuff goes when you can't find it, but you didn't delete it?!

So, I wrote another one, got sidetracked with phone calls about the Christmas float our church is working on and once again, not sure where it went.  Told you from day one I'm not real computer savvy.

Well, I just ran out of time to do another and after coming in from the parade last night, was just too tired to think straight.

Maybe I should have done it then, it would definitely would have been interesting to decipher!! LOL

So, after many hours and much thought; numerous jokes and brainstorming sessions, the float materialized.  Had a glitch at the ninth hour concerning the music.  The system we thought we had fell through and as of 10 a.m. still didn't know what we'd do about it.  But, when you leave things in God's hands, in His time things get done.

Although he thought earlier he wouldn't be able to get to it, my wonderful son came through and using an inverter (to avoid generator noise) and a portable stereo mounted in his truck, we had lot's of "quiet" lights and delightful children's voices singing Silent Night and Away in a Manger.  He did a great job pulling the float too.  Thanks Jacob!!

It was the best parade ever and as we all met in the park afterwards, we were treated to a mini-concert by another church's praise band and that was followed by a spectacular fireworks display and lighting of the park decorations.  It didn't get below 50 degrees and no rain.  A wonderful evening!! And to top it off we won the theme award (which was "the music of Christmas")for the church division.  It was our first time to do a float, but I'm thinking it won't be our last!

'till next time-
