Small Town America

There are a bunch of little towns throughout Florida. Just
your typical small town america. With the treelined
streets, the happy houses with perfect lawns, the cafe on
the corner next to the dry cleaners.

It is to one of these towns that I went today for a 4th of
July parade. We got there a bit early and wandered the
shopping district before finding a place on the green for
our picnic.

Now, I like a good parade. You get the Kiwinis, AmVets,
Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Shriners(still with fez!), Fire
Rescue and the like. In this small town, there was the
local StarTrek club in the parade. They followed the tap
dancers on a float.

This is what it means to be an American. To be able to sit
on a lawn and watch people making fools of themselves (for
free no less!) for your entertainment. It was great.
Anywhere, USA.

I love being an American.
