Illustration Friday: Parade

Well lots of images come up for Parade, but I pulled from personal experience on this one. I was the Torrance County (NM) 4-H Horse show/Rodeo Queen in the mid 80's. In one of the county parades for some reason they put me right in front of the Honda Gold Wing club. Needless to say my horse was not thrilled about having all those gunning motorcycles behind him. But that wasn't as bad, in his mind, as the State Fair Parade with the clown carrying a big cluster of balloons.

And just for grins heres a photo of Nifty and I all decked out right before a parade.
