Egrets Reading

Happy 2010!

On New Year's morning you can find me on Colorado Boulevard. I've attended every Rose Parade since 1979 except two. (One year I had the flu, the other I had a one month preemie at home.)

I even watched it in the rain once.

Some ask me why I do this. Why don't I just watch it on TV where it is warm? Why don't I just sleep in and watch the re-runs?

All I can say is that it's just different in person.
