Parade Float

Bobbi glues flowers to the float.

As I had mentioned, while I was in Iowa for six days my wife Bobbi and sister in law Jan were in Pasadena helping to decorate the New Mexico Rose Bowl Parade Float. Rodger Beimer was there too while his wife Connie was in Iowa helping Governor Richardson's efforts. Here are some photos of their hard work. A lot of New Mexican volunteers spent their New Years Week in California to help with this. Their work won the Grand Marshall Trophy for Creativity and Design. Click on the photos to enlarge them.

Jan works on pinning vines.

Rodger hangs out in the scaffolding

Detail work was beautiful
