Lawnmower Brigade

So in the Wilmore parade, they have a group of men from the community who dress up in white dress shirts and ties. Each man pushes a lawnmower in formation. They have a director who uses a whistle to direct them into new formations- turns, marching in single file, marching in two lines. It was in the top 10 funniest things I've ever seen. Eric says there is a YouTube video of it, and he'll try to find it.

Some international flavor in the parade. There are lots of countries represented in our little town, so it was nice to see some international color.

This was the house across the street from where we watched the parade. There is an older couple on the front porch and the man smiled from ear to ear through the whole thing- especially the antique tractors.

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
