Sometimes you think you have seen and done it all, but in reality we aren’t even close to seeing and doing it all. But today I do have to say we did something that was a first for me. About 20 years ago if you would have said that I would take time to watch something like this I probably would have laughed and said are you kidding. This morning we woke up to a cloudy and rather cold morning. The wind was quite strong so after having some absolutely beautiful winter days here in Central Texas, today was not so nice. But we got in the car and drove to one of the other neighborhoods in our community, actually lucky Neighborhood 13 and we watched a Golf Car Mardi Gras parade. Don’t laugh, it was actually quite cute. I was surprised by the large number of golf cars that were decorated and the people (and dogs) that participated.
Of course, as with any Mardi Gras parade, there was candy being thrown, and the numerous different types of beads. I am happy to say that I am now the proud owner of 42 different types of beads. Actually I think that is quite a lot considering this was a small neighborhood parade. But like with anything we have seen here at Sun City, whatever people choose to do, they do it with zest and zeal. They give 100% to the decorating and although we had fun standing and watching the parade, the people in the parade were having an equal amount of fun.
I’m glad we went, another one of those firsts for us, and I’m looking forward to the rest of the year waiting to see what each new month will bring us. One thing living in a community of this type is that it gives you an opportunity to try everything, whether you’re a beginner or advanced, all activities are open for everyone to try to see if they like it, of course, withe the hope that you will like it enough to want to become a full-time member and become fully involved in their activity. I’ve only found one thing myself, so far, that I find I want to get fully involved and that is Line Dancing. I have so much more to try, but feel I have to give the things I am trying now my full effort before I move onto the next.
The worst part of today is that I forgot my camera! Sometimes I think if my head wasn’t attached I would forget that too. I had no phone and no camera so I will not be able to share any of the photos, but I think imagining what a parade of this type looks like could be even more fun. I hope your day was fun and you also had a chance to experience “a first”. That can’t happen every day so when it does, it’s a day you don’t want to forget. Hope the road you’re traveling is free of bumps and pot holes and you have smooth traveling in the week ahead. Until next time “happy travels”…………
