walk together.

Standard

what better way to celebrate the day than walking all together
the local merchants

the stormtrooper

the pride

the squirrel

the roller derby team

the pedal bikers

the mayor

the musicians with a cause

the snow buddies

the creatures.

and so many, many, more.

and about us having to figure out how to walk through this world together.”

and with the return of the aussies

my band of grandies are back together

all on one continent

in one time and one place

sharing some mischief and one tiny space.

Jake: We’re putting the band back together.
Mr. Fabulous: Forget it. No way.
Elwood: We’re on a mission from God.
