I have been asked to drive one of the local high school beauty queens in this year's Old Soldiers Reunion Parade.

I was quite excited to do this until I read that no Catawba County bands will be performing. Now, I wish I hadn't committed to this young lady. What kind of parade doesn't have bands! Geez.

This will be the last year I have anything to do with this parade. I have a feeling I am not alone.
