Well it took a few years 75 to be exact, I got to ride shot gun in the big fire engine in the annual parade.  Hell yes it brought the kid out in me :thumbup2:

 There is just something about riding in a fire truck that brings out the kid in all of us.

Was super!  I was offered a hat but it did not take it will probably regret it, my arm got tired waving to friends.  I always watched the parade down the street from our house, never went up to the main road.  I live in a small town, I was so surprised to see how many people were up on the main road.  I was darn near like old home night, I am sure I will be pumped for awhile.  I even had to call my 94 year old mom she said finally, she knew I always wanted to!
