Egrets Reading

The Aliens Have Landed....

I was driving home from the store and ran across this alien spacecraft blocking the street....

It was the annual pre-Rose Parade parade of floats from the float builder companies, traveling secretly through the San Gabriel Valley to their line-up positions on Orange Grove Boulevard in Pasadena.

I was caught in traffic by two such float processions today, even catching a glimpse of the controversial Beijing Olympics float many are protesting.
