So I guess here, where we are miles and miles and miles away from civilization as I once knew it, there are some crazy people. I wish I had a picture to display it because (and not to offend any of those people in any way) its the craziest thing I've seen in a very long time. The upcoming 4th of July holiday is an exciting thing in this area. Apparently the festivities are such a big deal that people from all over the Sunny State of Az come to the mountains to take part. So many people in fact, that it brings out the best of the Natives to this area, and although the parade is Saturday, people began to set up their chairs on Tuesday... including rope, caution tape, do not cross, private property, keep out, folding chairs, rocking chairs, school chairs, toddler chairs... It's a home town parade folks, not Disneyland. I am baffled by it, and assure you this that even when I have lived here 20 years I will not be taping off a family plot for the parade. It makes me want to go stand in one of their squares and dance around and say "it's mine, my square, and there's nothing you can do about it", just because it's so darn ridiculous. So After Saturday, I will fill you all in on how great this parade is, and how next year I will definitely mark off my spot, so that I can get a better view of the GLORIOUS WONDERFUL PARADE!
