A Colorful Holiday (#252) 03-23-13

This is the nine day Cherry Blossom Festival in Macon, GA. EVERYTHING is pink.

And our Granddaughter is the Cherry Blossom Queen for 2013, so Barbara and I thought that we ought to attend :-).

But this meant that even WE had to pink up for the Cherry Blossom Gala. This is NOT my thing.

So, now to the stranger story. The annual parade is always held on the first Sunday of the event, which happened to be St. Patrick's Day. So, do you dress pink or green? For me, it was easy – pink. But I saw two young ladies headed my way, and Brittany was definitely not of the pink persuasion. When I introduced myself and asked for a photo, she had no hesitation.

But her friend just evaporated into the nearby crowd; clearly she had no interest in being photographed.

My son laughed and said that he recognized the friend from work (Geico). Macon has a population of about 100,000, but it is still a small town.

Next week - back to black and white, where I belong.   :-)
