Happy New Year, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!

I don’t know how the DigAlert float did, but I do know that Fiesta Parade Floats (the company we decorate for) won 9 of the 13 awards, including the top prize. They also happened to build 13 floats this year.

Mac -- thank you for all you do. It is much appreciated!

Even though my float never made it on TV, due to the breakdown of the Chinese-American Heritage float, we won the Past President’s award for most outstanding innovation in the use of floral and non-floral materials.

…breakdown of the Chinese-American Heritage float…

Those spy chips on the circuit boards screwed stuff up?

Congratters on the award your float received, Paddy.

I’d like to find out what caused the fire, but who knows if I ever will.

You can see the float that we worked on in this video at the 2:46 mark.
