WONDERFUL festival last night, lots of happy pappy people and this is particular fun for kids of all ages. I love seeing the teens romp around the area with excited smiles. I didn't have my kids in town to attend with me, so I went solo, still was a sight to behold. Thank you Burlingame for returning to the evening schedule. There is just no comparison.

The one downer (and I say this as a former BHS band booster with two kid musicians involved in band their entire high school career), that conspicuously missing from the parade lineup was the BHS marching band.

I certainly appreciate the Mustangs coming to town and filling in- good for them, we owe them one. Those perhaps not as involved local high school activities might have overlooked the switch from red uniforms to green (the Mustang's color).

Why was our own BHS band missing in action?? 'Glad the cheerleaders bothered to participate, but that is just part of the whole.

For the community, and in particular, for budding musicians (or those even with just only a passing interest in music) who watch these parades, seeing your own high school participate in a community event is truly an inspiration. It seeds musical interest when the kids reach high school age.

Thank you to the Capuchino Mustangs.

The Jacobs family just found out about the guerilla lighting of Mom's tree......how wonderful! Thanks to the generous soul for remembering Mom during her favorite time of year. We're very touched by this.

The Baby Ruth ornaments are terrific too!

My Dad and I checked out Mom's tree this past weekend....it was so cute! I can't wait to see it as the City Christmas tree in 10 years. Thanks again to our anonymous Christmas Elf who did this in Mom's memory.

Taking a cue from last year's "elf", a few of us will gather on Thursday, Dec. 6 @ 4:45 (still daylight) to decorate Baby Ruth. We noticed last year that she was a real hit with the smaller kids and the birds and squirrels. So come on by, if you've a mind to, and add an ornament, candy cane, or a string of popcorn.


Pat, I am reminded once again that people like you are the Very Best part of Burlingame.
