One of Fiesta San Antonio premiere night time parades celebrated its 65th anniversary tonight...Fiesta Flambeau...and I had front row seats! No, I did not actually attend the parade...I watched it on TV from the comfort of dad's old recliner :)
This year KLRN of San Antonio ( PBS station) carried quite a few events live. I have never attended this parade in person...hope to one day be able to do so. They had bands from all over the State of Texas as well as from Alabama, Arkansas and Georgia.
The Budweiser Clydesdale's made an appearance...beautiful horses! KLRN also carried it live on line and people were tweeting from all over the nation and the world. In France some Texans were throwing a party and watching the feed on big screen TV as they drank Mexican beer...my type of party!
They heard from someone as far away as South Africa...a former San Antonian also watching it. One guy asked the announcer to please read his marriage proposal to his girlfriend on the air...the lady announcer obliged.
After two hours it started to rain and for the safety of the announcers and staff they went off the air. A little disappointing but understandable.
Earlier today Cliff and his lovely wife came by to finish cutting down the large mesquite tree that has been a pain to tackle. One down and many more to go! They were nice enough to share some of their pulled pork with mother and myself. I remember first hearing about it on Trouble in Texas blog...we are anxious to try it for the first time.
Around ten o'clock we got a much needed rain shower. On the news it showed some heavy flooding in Houston, will have to call my neighbor tomorrow.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
