July 10, 2008......my 40th birthday and a day I shall not soon forget. Mom and Miles came up from Berkeley, Marg came down from Seattle and we were all going to Bluehour for a wonderful dinner at 7:30. Dad and Caitlin would meet us there. Fine. Nothing suspicious at all.
So I'm sitting on the couch chatting with the family, minding my own business when suddenly I hear drums.....big drums....loud drums.
I think "No, it can't be!" But it COULD be!
Yes, the Last Regiment of Syncopated Drummers was marching up the street to my house!!! And my Dad in his joker hat walking right next to them!
What a fantastic way to celebrate my birthday! I had said a few months ago that it would be so cool for a marching band to play for me on my birthday in front of my house....my Dad listened and here's the result!
Quite the crowd gathered.......the LRSD knows how to make people sit up and take notice.
Turns out everyone but me knew what was going to happen......it was all part of the plan! Absolutely nothing can ever top this. Ever.
