Great call, Tango.


If you want to see some really fun "vehicles" you need to see this parade. Plan to get there early. Even though it follows a pretty long path, parking can be a challenge, and finding a shady spot is a bit an excursion in itself. Bring the kids, and get ready to have a good time.

BTW --- Finally had the chance to meet Cadillac (Christopher) in person last evening. Super guy! He's in town for a few days and will be at the Meet N" Greet on Saturday...but ONLY after the ArtCar Parade. He was super excited to discover that his trip to Houston coincided with this event.

"Redbird" is parked just down the block from my art studio and it looks even better in parson. Hard not to grin when you see a bright red shorty school bus!

Hope to see more of you local Skoolies Saturday at REHAB Bar on the Bayou but be advised...I will very likely be in work clothes that are covered in cement. My project there will have me "on the job" for most of the day till you folks arrive around four.

Hope to see you all soon.

You'll be 'hard' to miss.

Roger the "hard to miss". This work is one reason why my wardrobe all comes from thrift shops.

But...I also have a collection of about 76 vintage Hawaiian shirts. None of which costs me more than $3.00!

Roger the thrift shops. Just because I have enough money to go to a mall doesn't mean I'm dumb enough to.

A buddy has the most enviable Hawaiian shirt I've ever seen. When you examine it, you see that it's all Snap-On tools! I've considered theft, but the paperwork wouldn't be worth it.

I was there from 4 to 6:15 and saw no one. I'll be back about 8:30 to catch the music (Texas Johnny Boy...Blues you can use). No cement work today...too muddy.

Well dang! Looks like Nomad and I were the only ones to show up ...and we somehow managed to miss each other. The weird weather early in the day must have scared some folks off.

Tango, next go round, you need to make a sign, sorta like the limo drivers at the airport. It just needs to say "Tango" or "Skoolies."
I remember when we met last time, the only way I met anyone was because I overheard the word "International" and I said to myself "that's got to be some bus guys."
