    When I took on my new job assignment, the thought never occurred to me that I would be changing my schedule. For the first three years of this weekend, I've strapped up and worked nights during this weekend. It's basically a blow off weekend since we have a bunch of people in town. Usually consists of just driving around and looking good and assisting the local PD. The first couple of years were pretty quiet, then last year it was the methed out drunk (how that is possible, who knows?:haha:) trying to go rounds with a trooper and city cop in a mudhole outside one of the bars, then the next night playing car chase for about 40 miles with some yahoo tossing full beer cans out at the trooper who initiated the pursuit.

    No more of that, this year I had to go in and work parade duty, which consists of shutting down an intersection, tactically positioning my patrol unit so I can view the parade from the comfort of my A/C blowing, XM equipped patrol car.

    Here's some pics I took of today's participants:

    Kept looking for Dale, Jr to be in command of this rig:

    These guys have a little mini airport right outside of town. Funny part was the broken up plane attached to the front of the tow rig.

    Right about the time I clicked this, the old boy on the right said "hey, there's a cop" and flinged one right at my car. These old boys are from the XIT and they toss these little wagon wheel frisbees everywhere. Got my first ones about 30 years ago. Old boy's first attempt went underneath my car, about three seconds later, he flings another one. Too bad there as no video. I was standing behind my door, with it open shooting pics. I raised my left hand, no moving of the body and the frisbee came to me like it belonged. I knew I still had game for the diamond.

    These guys were actually in the front, right behind the 14 million law enforcement vehicles that apparently had to lead the parade. Pretty neat display. Never was stationed on a post with anything like it, although I knew about this one. Kind of appreciate it with my thirst of history and my time as a modern day cavalryman.
