Charles Phoenix on Parade
Ace's pal Charles Phoenix has gotten involved in something strange - imagine that. The "histo-entertainer" will be Grand Marshall of Pasadena's 32nd Occasional Doo Dah Parade, tomorrow, Sunday January 18. Ace met Charles at Kansas City's Airline History Museum last fall when he presented one of his very cool retro slide shows.
The Doo Dah parade is...well, sort of like a Star Trek Mirror universe version of the Rose Parade. It features such attractions as the Synchronized Briefcase Marching Drill Team. I rather doubt it has farmers on John Deere tractors, but I wouldn't be surprised to see a shriner's fez or two.
