These are weird times we’re living in alright. My fellow loco blogger’s have all seemingly been looking skyward lately. Maybe, that’s just the season for such. So, I’m gonna be a daily photo blogger for a day, like on a semi-monthly basis or whatever base I can get to safely.
And, the weirdness continues. I look out my window the other day onto Colorado Blvd, as I’ve done 1 trillion times before, and what do I see:
A rose bloomin out of what looks like a fern? But, where’s the torns? Then, the rose is growing up around a, light pole? Where’s the banners I’m used to seeing, in normal times, proclaiming this to be the Pasadena Playhouse District?
What’s all this about? A rose growing out of a fernlike creature. I’ve been transported from the Playhouse District to apparently, magically, the Rose District – whatever that means?
And what does it mean?
No. Wait. It can’t be. Not yet again. I’ve been through this 1 thousand times before. The Tournament of Roses, already and again?? A New Year, once more? I’m still working on my leftover Halloween candy! Next, it’s gonna be my Thanksgiving leftovers for turkey sandwiches. Besides, I still remember the last Rose Parade when it rained for the first time in half a century – how I was thinking maybe I’d get up early to come just so I could say I was here the last time it rained on our parade – last year!
It didn’t rain last year? Well, it sure seems like that parade was just a year past, or two. Are you sure? Heck, in fact it’s raining on the parade route right now as I speak type!
I dunno know if I’m ready for this already. It seems like we just had it 4-5 months ago. Hey, I’m a parade supporter – just not much of a parade goer.
Can I just enjoy some more relative peace & quiet? Can everyone just go on vacation somewhere else for change? Pasadena has too many people already as far as I’m concerned. I just wanna be able to sit in one of my local cafes without the bustle & roar of a stadium crowd around me. Is it asking too much?
Yeah, I know, I understand. But, what does it all mean – anyone??
