. . . I Love Corn

". . . I love Corn . . ."

Walt Disney

Walt Disney was very much a patriot. He loved America and even more so small town America. Yesterday we had the pleasure of enjoying part of small town America live that Walt would have enjoyed. We watched a small town’s 4th of July parade.

So what if it was corny? As Walt said, “I sell corn, I love corn.”

We had the fun of what is done in many small American towns. There was a parade down the only main street in the town. People from every walk of life had come to watch. On side of us was a family of Mexican heritage that spoke both English and Spanish fluently. On the other side was a family from Mexico that could hardly speak English. I saw people of Asian and Middle Eastern descent along with others. All had come to celebrate the United States of America.

So without further ado here are pictures of the Sunland/Tujunga, Ca 4th of July parade.

This guy did the parade rute several times going both ways. :0)

Ya he came back DRENCHED! LOL

The organizers of the parade sure knew well what to place at the end. A water tanker with a water cannon came out to close off the parade. They shot water off the back as the kids ran out to get soaked. The biggest kid of all was my husband! He believes in Walt’s way of thinking, "Why do we have to grow up? I know more adults who have the children's approach to life. They're people who don't give a hang what the Joneses do. You see them at Disneyland every time you go there. They are not afraid to be delighted with simple pleasures, and they have a degree of contentment with what life has brought - sometimes it isn't much, either."
