The parade that our community threw on July 3rd, however, was the quietest parade I'd ever been to. The kids brought bags to collect all their candy and were stoaked to participate in a good 'ol American parade. Darcy collected ONE Werther's Original and ONE peppermint wheel. The parade mostly consisted of elderly people driving by in old cars....every 4 minutes. At one point during a big lull, a teenage boy walked on the street past us. Colby, ever the comedian, started clapping for him to provide some humor to the people around us. Darcy looked up at Colby and with honest amazement asked, "Did that boy fighted in the Civil War?"
