Raintree tshirt! We asked where he got it - he said he got it when he moved in 22 years ago.
The ducks were our audience
The white duck always has an entourage
Raintree streets are named after MGM movies, since this used to be the MGM backlot

Yes, I know I look like Uncle Sam
Phew - parade is done, no more need to wear the hat

My flag jello mold. It didnt look too pretty but it got devoured in about 10 mins
Chocolate-covered strawberries were delicious
Gotta love the accordion!
Kudos to Mary Lou for organizing the event. A good time was had by all - even the dog who was required to wear a hat.
