Just as I was prepared to go with the above post, Jules sent me a pic of Noa in David’s old Halloween costume. (Can you say that ten times, fast?) And, she asked, “Can you find a picture of David wearing it?” Ha ha. My file system – database – is not so accurate as to pinpoint David, ladybug as key words. But I found “ladybug” and moved on to Halloween costumes of the same year. Does that make logical sense? And I got 13 shots. Yes, in the days of slide film, I shot parsimoniously. Gee, today, it would have been hundreds of shots of Noa. Jules bribed Noa with a lollypop to get her into the costume. The wedding dress as I recall was custom made for my brother John’s wedding in which Jules participated as flower girl. She wore that dress until it was tatters. The search took about 30 minutes. Gee, I am good! And, I am more organized than I thought myself to be.
The last time we attended a parade was in 2016 in Rehoboth. I used to attend the mega NYC parade. They painted naked women in body paint just before the parade started. No, I have none (naked women) to show you. The parade was about what you would expect. Who knew what the future would portend. Yeah! That was a nightmare. But, like all bad dreams, it ended. Bye Don. Hmmmm… and that I watched the parade in the town where your successor lives. It’s funny how things can circle around to bite you in the ass. Maagritte had it right – surreal!
