Chapter Sixty-One

The parade was a blur.

The Glee Club from General John G. Pershing Elementary School sang “Monotone Angel.” Betty Showalter was the featured soloist.

The Altar and Rosary Society handed out hot apple cider in their Mrs. Claus aprons and at the end of the parade Louise’s husband Roger sat on a big red velvet chair in a slightly worn red velvet suit and white beard held on by elastic straps. He talked to the kids a little and he listened to the kids a little, but when he saw who was on the King Of the Parade float he dropped a whole tin of candy canes.Herc61.jpg
