Fort Bend County Fair Parade: We Have a Float

Amid everything going on in DC with bailout negotiations and the Bush meeting with McCain, Obama, and congressional leadership, amid all of that, Fort Bend County is opening its annual county fair tomorrow, and it will be kicked off by the annual Fair Parade.

The Fort Bend Democrats will not only have a booth, a big old booth, in the Exhibition Hall, but this year they have entered a float in the parade.

That’s what I have been doing the past couple of nights, building this float.

Speaking of putting lipstick on a pig (or is it a hockey mom?) we have a very unique task this year. It involves turning a 16-foot long ancient utility trailer, every square inch of it covered with thick rust, into a thing of real beauty.

Check back tomorrow and see if we succeeded.
