Allen and I went to the Pioneer Parade on Friday morning. We left home around 6:15 a.m. or so. We went to our regular place at 330 South 200 East, where there is an old apartment building with trees in front. There is shade for the entire parade, and plus there was a nice breeze blowing. The parade was excellent, of course. 148 entries, the most popular of which were the military entries. I heard nothing but cheers and applause, and everyone was standing up to show their approval. I found it inspiring and have to admit, got a little teary. Yay for the pioneers! Thanks to them for the beautiful city we live in, and the dedication and courage they showed in coming here to live in freedom.
