CLEANING UP ALL THE STREAMERS AFTER THE LABOR DAY PARADE






From 1993 on, it has become a tradition for me to listen to a Billy Joel song after the ABA parade in Ashland, Pennsylvania…

And despite the lack of an ABA parade in the small Coal Region town, and the lack of the tradition, here it goes anyway: Billy Joel, Famous Last Words. Amazing how, as time ticks on, the traditions we grew up with become distant memories.. the food and beer just remnants of the past.. 
And the balloons and streamers of labor day parades? 
Gone and turning to dust as we age..HAPPY ABA!Happy Labor Day.Sweep away the streamers.Nothing left for a dreamer now, Only one final serenade.
