Every little town in America has a summer celebration and today is Duesey Day in Garner. Years ago Connie and I pushed an antique bed loaded with quilts as an entry. We wore long plaid flannel nightgowns and sleeping caps. We’ve had several other entries throughout the years like the golf cart and water pistols one year. Then I started working in the shop so that staff could attend with their kiddos. I went to the parade this morning with Becky and we sat by the Care Center with Lavahn and as the Avery Theatre float came by, I was surprised to see Gilda, the good witch from the Wizard of Oz. If you look closely, you will recognize Connie!
While I was taking Connie’s picture, Becky parked in the church lot across the street to wait for me and another car backed right into the rider’s side of her new car! So we had to get the police to make a report and all the rest of the cars were trying to get out of the lot after the parade and it really put a damper on our fun morning.
Connie is always the first one in line for a costume – ha! Didn’t she make a great “good witch”? And yes, the corn REALLY IS as high as an elephant’s eye! Ha!
