I did not take my Chevy, but I did drive to the levee — the town's New Year Levee. Yes, the levee was dry in the sense that the water was frozen.
It was the other kind of levee, the kind that refers more to a party or gathering, and not an embankment by a river.
The town has had a New Year Levee for some time now, but I had never attended. It was basically a free skate at the arena. This year it was held outdoors at the new rink by the new Junction (park, gathering place). Fortunately, the weather was mild, hovering around freezing or slightly above. Hot chocolate and hot dogs were made available and skating, of course.
The mayor and certain other council members were there. He usually takes a few minutes to chat with us. Here he is indulging me and Sue for a picture.
The horses were there to offer wagon rides to and from downtown.
This is a good town to live in.
