October 26, 2005

It is 11pm after the parade and I'm still totally psyched.
I ended up leading the Northern Virginia Corvette Club in the Parade!!!

I covered my 1994 Polo Green Convertible Corvette with webs.
Most webs were attached by tying the end of the webs to sticks from my yard and inserting into cavities in the car or wrapped around a post.
Fishing line was also used to secure props.

 I attached all the webs while parked in my driveway. I also attached the  full plastic skeleton on the hood and secured him.
I didn't dare do anything else. I was afraid the drive would be too much even though I only had 2 miles to drive.
I drove over to the parade staging grounds at That's Amore.
I drove with my flashers on. I'm sure I was quite a site as I made my way.
(I actually got as high as 30MPH before thing began to move too much but the webs stayed secure.)
I took with me the additional props I wanted to use to finish decorating the car, fishing line, packing tape, and scissors.
As I pulled into the parking lot, the club organizer smiled broadly.
I parked, waved hello to all, and began to complete the decorating of my car.
Club members and others came over to compliment me on my car decorations as I worked.
Just as the parade was about to start, the club members informed me that they thought I should lead them in the parade.
I literally jumped for joy. What an honor!!!!

The car was decorated as follows:

 

Driving down the parade route I was overwhelmed by the response my car generated.
People cheered and I felt like a king, all because I own a Corvette.
My exceptional decorating had landed me at the front of 19 corvettes and I got to hear the club announced from the grandstand.
Another rush!!!!!!!
I shifted to neutral and rev'ed the engine to the crowds cheers.
I've never experienced anything like this in my entire life!!!
I had to sit down and write this because I'm so keyed up I can't sleep. Now maybe I can...


Me and a kindred spirit watch part of the parade
(I walked up to these folks and said "I see you found my dog")

Thanks! to two groups of friends who showed up to cheer me on.
Life is good when you own a Corvette....
