Parade Pictures

Click here and here for large but not very competent snapshots of the Yarmouth, Maine, Memorial Day parade. They were taken from my front porch a few minutes ago. I'm sorry about the wrong date, and even sorrier that I wasn't quite quick enough to catch the mostly middle-aged veterans themselves in their well-pressed and not-much-snugger-than-they-used-to-be uniforms. They had just passed when the Cub Scouts (picture 1) arrived, followed by the Yarmouth Middle School Band (picture 2) playing the Marine Corps hymn. Playing it very well, too, though I noticed that some of the kids in the back of the band didn't seem to be actually blowing into their flutes and clarinets.
