Viva La Fiesta
A week of dancing, drinking, eating, partying, and parades in San Antonio over for another year. I've attended most of it at different times but no more. The closest we get is watching on TV now. The schools in San Antonio and surrounding towns are closed as they are invited to march in the Battle of Flowers and Fiesta Flambeau parades. My daughter marched as an oboist one year and as a majorette two years. Also participated in the Battle Of The Bands. One year after I was widowed a couple who had a business invited some of us widows to watch the parade with them. They parked a big flat bed truck at the curb along the parade route and put benches on it. They parked a camper behind it so we could use the bathroom. They cooked chili, provided drinks, popcorn and peanuts. Wasn't that nice of them? We were comfortable in every way. A "thank you" note was in order to this couple and their business.
