Parade Pics

I know, you can hardly contain yourself - fear not - parade pictures will be coming as soon as I have time to take them off the camera and load them up. Try to hold on - I know not when I will get to it. I can feel your anxiety and excitement from here ...really I can.

Victoria Day Parade

Today the city will be alive with the sound of marching bands as the Victoria Day Parade gets underway. A peculiar phenomenon as most of the bands are from America (United States of...). Odd that they come here to celebrate the birthday of this queen - odd we celebrate it, when it comes right down to it. Let's just make like we are celebrating the City of Victoria....yeah, that's the ticket!

Anyway, one of my peculiar pastimes is taking contemporary pop songs and setting them to a marching band tune. Try it - it's most unnervingly addictive - or not...

Try a classic pop tune to start with, perhaps "It Ain't Me, Babe" by Bob Dylan or something by U2 and go from there.

Enough about that. If I get some pictures of the parade today, I will post later.
