Charlotte Festival


My mother who is 91 was Grand Marshall of the Charlotte Festival.  Here she is in the parade!  My cousin Emily is driving in her classic 1987 Mercedes convertible.  It was lots of fun seeing family and friends.  The weather was around 90 and not as humid as it has been.  Mother made it fine and had fun.  She's amazing!  She still drives and gets around so well.  Her mind is sharp, and she's the best mother ever!!

Btw, notice that Marshal is misspelled on one side of the car. This is really bothering Mother, who has always been a stickler for correct grammar and spelling! We can live with the two "L's" but not the rearrangement of the "s" and "h" on one of the signs.

It worries her that she didn't notice it earlier so they could change it. We're not sure who made those signs but we know we can't rewind.
