Aggies stepping lively

They weren’t the only ones. The tasty turkey, courtesy of Wheatsville, and all accompaniments were prepared and consumed yesterday so that today would be free for the A&M parade on Congress. We marched up and down for about three miles’ worth of distance and were very happy to have done so.

I was trying to use the FlipCam (version 1.0) and the plastic Concord 1500 held together with an elastic band simultaneously. The still photographs were better than the videos, but some of the music can be heard on the latter.

The parade stepped off right on time at 1 pm, just as the chimes in the old fire tower were sounding. The cold front blew through as the Tymco sweeper followed the mules and horses that drew up the rear guard of the procession.

I love a parade! A military band with all the brass cannot be surpassed, but that doesn’t mean that anyone who loves fresh air and happiness should miss Chuy’s parade on Saturday. I can hardly wait.

P.S. Find the game on KVET 98.1-FM radio or 1300-AM if you’re interested in why the band and Corps are in town.
