It was Grand

DW and the kids were at Great America two days ago. They were sitting in the theater, and a guy walks up and asks if they want to be grand marshals of the parade. Cool.

So DW and the kids, and the in-laws get in the car. A guy tells them "wave." Why he felt the need I'm not sure. That and smiling are the universally accepted jobs of people in a parade. MIL must have been self-conscious. The first half of the parade she was randomly announcing to people that "they told us to wave."

Afterward, the kids got to meet and greet privately with the characters. Marvin the Martian, Bugs, and Babs bunny - Bugs' woman. On the way home, BigBrother tells DW "I want to be the girl bunny."

Sigh.

They got to meet Marvin the Martian? Totally not fair. Sure Bugs was the star and all, but, Marvin was the best supporting actor they had. I know that Daffy got all of the credit, with Road Runner not far behind. The true talent in the group had to be Marvin.

(elbow, elbow, wrist...wrist?

My personal favorite was the orange hair monster who Bugs kills by giving him a hair cut.

I also think that the coyote should sue the Acme Company for damages. Does the Road Runner have stock in the Acme company?

Can you imagine the lawsuits had the horrors he experienced occured today?

I loved Bugs. Still do. You know, everything I learned about Opera, I learned from Bugs & Elmer Fudd.
