After a two year Covid suspension, this Saturday brings the return of a unique and wonderful St. Louis event, the People's Joy Parade (excessive number of pictures from past years here). Every kind of St. Louisan gathers in one of our odder neighborhoods and struts down the street in every kind of costume for the pure fun of it - no other reason.

My friends at Artica always always have something interesting. This year it's a giant abstract dragonfly mounted to the top of an old car. Those of us marching along will have oversized pinwheels to pass out to the crowd. There have been weekend sessions to get things ready. Ellie and I went on Saturday and she was given the job of painting the pinwheel sticks. As you can see, she took it very seriously. If you ask her, she will tell you that she is going to be an artist when  she grows up.

She looks quite serious.
