Veteran's Day-,November 2012
San Marcos, Texas
San Marcos, Texas--downtown on the square. This is one of the restored Nineteenth Century buildings, Harpers's Hall. It's now a popular coffeehouse and sandwich shop.
Hello, from Celia! I don't know the little girl, but we enjoyed the parade together.
Mounted Color Guard from San Marcos Baptist Academy. One riderless horse to represent those our country has lost.
Grand Marshal. Don't you love that vintage car?

The first Company of four of the Corps of Cadets at San Marcos Academy.
Large crowd in downtown, some looking skyward for the flyover of a group of four
WWII prop-driven fighter planes. They were very loud, and very exciting. But we did not get a photo. Additional entries in the parade were the San Marcos High School marching band, a large group that stopped right in front of us and played songs from all the branches of the military.
Also: 4-H groups, boy scouts, girl scouts, old jeeps, and the usual firetrucks and police cars.
Miss Outstanding Teen of the Texas Hill Country.
What would a Texas parade be without a baton twirler? She twirled three at once, and several times did a flip and still caught the batons, and did high kicks, too. Amazing young woman.
I hope you enjoyed a parade or celebration, too. It was very uplifting to see all the patriotism and smiling faces.
