Last Sunday, we went to our Easter Parade on Monument Avenue. It's an annual promenade. There were people and animals with fancy hats, entertainment, and food. All people do is walk down one side of the street and up the other side for several blocks. It was extremely HOT this year and crowded.
We especially loved the men in their fabulous hats. Also, the irony of the band of black musicians played on the green area beneath the Robert E. Lee statue (American Civil War, southern general, for those of you who are in other countries.)
After dinner, the weather became cooler and someone suggested that we go play miniature gold, so we did. It was so much fun. We laughed, hooted and hollered, encouraged each other, took pictures, and had a terrific time. I came in last, oh well. Can't wait to do this again.
