Today started out warm and hazy from the wildfire smoke and four of us old duffers decided to head north for the day and look at the BMW motos at the BMW store and hit a couple flea markets and generally raise a little dust!
A smooth drive to Socorro, a good brekkie and off to the big town.
Aha, into town from Isleta along Broadway and we will slip up Central to the fairgrounds and the big Saturday flea Market....good plan....wait, que la chinga? A parade? Uh-oh, detours and lots of traffic around the pink and blue parasols and....holy cripes it's Gay Pride Day and guess what? Through some devious and deft piloting, our driver, Bri of the Many Wheels, has us firmly in the lead up Central as the first vehicle in the Gay Pride Parade....!
Damn, too bad we are in a faded and dinged up silver 1988 Subaru wagon since we are pulling off some excellent waves and smiles at our audience of people three or four deep along both sides of Central....
Home now and happy I was able to find some bee pollen at the flea for my allergies and we will check tomorrows paper for photos of us....
Old guys rule!
