It was the green machine today. Reduce. Reuse. And my favorite, Recycle. If you missed the parade, you missed the experience of a lifetime. Synchronized recycling bin maneuvering! It was truly a sight to see. I believe there will be a category for it in the 2020 Olympics. By then however, I will have retired. Go out on top. That's what I always say! To the two random ladies who didn't call the police when I sat on your lap, thank you! To the judges who awarded us first place in most creative float, thank you! And to the powers that be that allowed a 65 year old man to finish the parade in 84 degree weather, THANK YOU! Now, if I can just replenish the 32 gallons of water I lost, I may yet survive! Ah yes. Participatory democracy! And you are loved!
