What does it say about me that I've been to a couple of Doo Dah Parades but have never been to a Rose Parade? Give me absurdity over pageantry any day! Sadly, the Doo Dah Parade seems to be scaling down. Last Saturday's extravaganza was only a couple of blocks. Hardly enough to get Bob Eubanks and Stephanie Edwards out there to cover it, even though both are unemployed.
My daughter, Annie and her writing partner, Jon were there however -- this blog's dutiful correspondents, and they file these photos.
I'm taking it as a personal crusade to see that the Doo Dah Parade next year is restored to its usual luster and goes three blocks. Finally! A cause I can believe in! C'mon, who's with me?

|Kid swap. Unburdening oneself of children seems to be a recurring parade theme|
|Mobile Banquet.. although it looks like rabbis having lunch|
|Can't you just hear Bob & Stephanie gushing over that one?|
