Attending my grandson’s Little League ball game last night, it was way to easy spot to the kids who were “distracted”. I remember all to well my time in Little League and the Coach always calling out for us to “pay attention” which I heard a lot of last night. These boys were lined up at second base for practice prior to the game and as you can see, they were all “paying attention”.
This is my 3rd post on the Glen Rose, TX 4th of July Parade and I wanted to highlight a few of the special moments I captured. How American is this that one of the lead vehicles his an old John Deere tractor? We see the crowds waiting in front of the Courthouse, friends gathering on the square, then a gentleman in a World War I uniform followed by the American Legion Post Color Guard (my friend Daryl Best is pictured), Uncle Sam and then another Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty in a float pulled by an old soldier and I am going to assume that he is wearing part of his original Army uniform (something I can admire because I have not been able to get into my Dress Blues in several decades). All in all, this is one of the better parades I have been to in years.
Glen Rose, TX holds a very typically “small town” Fourth of July Parade every year and considering how hot is was this year, they decided to hold it early in the day which made for large crowds, especially children. I focused mostly on the kids who seems to have a really big day and from what I saw, thoroughly enjoyed themselves. In this group of photos I found a very sheik young lady in a straw hat, two fathers holding their little girls, one very attentive dog, a flag waver, tow little boys who were watching the moon set over the courthouse and the little girl with an interesting statement on her t-shirt. More kids in Part 2.
