Fourth of July friends

It is so exciting to see people you know in a parade.

This year, my boyfriend Chad won best male and Jen was best overall in the Alameda Idol contest. They’re singing “Love Shack” here.

July 4: Alameda Idols

Our neighbor Carrie is active with the Alameda Small Dogs organization. They host a doggie costume parade at Halloween that is not to be missed.

The guy who lives down the street is always walking the route with his bagpipe.

Gloria and her family own Acapulco restaurant.

Gloria, another Quintero, and Frank

but we really know her and her husband from karaoke at Lemon Tree and Clubhouse. That’s where Chad got started singing.

Frank!

Rick is in more bands than I can name. You can see the Frisky Frolics, who sing songs from the 1920s-1940s or thereabouts, pretty much every week at Speisekammer or Julie’s.

I didn’t know this guy before, but I waited almost the entire parade for someone to come around handing out miniature American flags.

Finally! someone handing out miniature american flags!

Dr. Porter, thanks for the flag. You are my newest friend!

Miniature American flags for all!
