Everything Is Coming Up Roses with Vin

Just returned from the Rose Parade. I had a first row seat along the route and was able to see our Vinny from a few feet away as he passed by. The Dustettes and I were of course wearing all Dodger gear, and as Viny passed the crowd yelled their love for him. I doffed my cap, and it seemed as though he looked right at me and acknowledged me. I couldn't help but get a bit weepy. Here are a couple pics I was able to snap.


To my point, here's Vin on his experience, courtesy LA Times:
And the one thing I tried to do, and I did it until, really, my shoulders were sore, I wasn't just waving — I was applauding a lot. I kept applauding and gesturing to the people, 'I'm applauding you. I'm thanking you for all the years,' and they've been so good and kind and generous to me.

BTW saw a float with Daryl Hall from Hall & Oates playing. He hasn't missed a beat - sounded great. I saw H & O when I was like 14; made me feel old, so god knows how old he feels. Anyway, cheers to him. Also saw KC and the Sunshine Band - meh.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one to get weepy seeing Our Guy. Having Vin as Grand Marshall was a perfect way to start the new year.
