Billy Coyle brought bags of candy. We had lots of signs for walkers, plus three special signs modeled by Susan Schmidt on the historic, road sign Burma Shave ad campaign. I stickered up the kids on the parade route with popular Sooners for Jari or Cowboys for Jari stickers (Nobody said "no!) and soon fell way behind the float and walkers. It was the first time I'd walked since foot surgery, but I didn't feel a thing -- until later that day.
Probably the most amazing thing about Czech Fest this year was a solo float for Democrat Jim Priest for Attorney General that was built and staffed a new Republican friend. Just goes to show that everybody knows a good candidate when they meet one! If you were at Czech Fest, thanks so much! If not, we'll catch you next year!
