There aren't that many houses close together on our street, and I'm guessing most people were standing on the street uptown to watch. So Mark and I were the only spectators on our corner. So everyone waved and shouted Merry Christmas to us. And (Ro - you'd have loved this) they threw us candy. Lots and lots of candy - and even an invitation to a free pancake breakfast. I think they were just excited to throw it - it was near the beginning of the route. But there was no one else around to grab it. And since it was the end of our driveway we had to pick it all up or we'd drive over it in the morning.
|The candy canes are for you Ro.|
