On Friday, I went to the Wausau Holiday Parade with my caregiver and friend, Randy. Randy and I went last year and we hoped that this year we would not have another “vantastrophe” (my van lift dying in the middle of Siberian winter weather!) Check out my “Vantastrophe” blog!
This year we parked at the Trinity Lutheran Church. We then walked to the sidewalk and sat in the very front to watch the Wausau Holiday Parade. Some volunteers from the church were nice enough to give us hot chocolate. This day will go down in history as a CP milestone. This marked the first time ever I was able to successfully drink a hot chocolate without burning myself or wearing it. I guess miracles do happen on Christmas.
Aside from working with me for the past year and a half, Randy has been a History teacher for over thirty years, so of course, he knows everyone. We ran into a former student of his and her family. After talking to them, I realized we had something in common, we’re both die hard wrestling fans. We sat there chatting for what seemed like hours about wrestling. We even managed to watch the Wausau Holiday Parade!
As vehicles started zooming past, I asked Randy to get out my phone to take pictures. Unfortunately, believe it or not, even though I’m in my twenties, I’m very cell phone illiterate. Since my brand new cellphone is only two weeks old, both of us had to rack our brains to figure out the camera. Our greenness showed in some of the photographs! Fortunately, I was able to use five photos for this Wausau Holiday Parade blog!
Among one of the coolest things we saw at the Wausau Holiday Parade was a truck carrying hot air balloons in the back of it, that torched up the sky. We also saw a Christian drummer that very well could be the next Keith Moon (maybe a bit of an exaggeration) drumming in the back of a vehicle promoting a radio station with a variety of Christmas trees behind him. He’s really got a talent for the sticks. We saw a variety of mascots high fiving kids and passing out candy and someone dressed up as the Grinch standing on top of a tree in the back of a semi, waving to the crowd. A variety of police cars, fire trucks, and ambulances passed us. All of which required me to plug my ears, as they honked their horns at an excruciating volume level!
As the Wausau Holiday Parade came to a close, we made our way back to the van. Much to our relief, the van decided to not give us any mischief, and I was able to enjoy pizza back home without any extra adventures. Overall, I really enjoyed myself, and the weather was perfect.
Until next time, remember to keep rollin’ and keep smilin’!
