The Rose Parade: Pasadena, California — RalieTravels

We purchased our first color television in 1972 and from that time forward became faithful watchers of the Rose Parade held each year in Pasadena, California on New Year’s Day.

  1. I grew up in Pasadena, and lived there for most of my life. I worked on the floats for many years. You just brought back many happy memories. Thank you.

    1. WOW. I worked on a small float for a very small parade in high school. I can’t imagine working on anything bigger.

      1. It’s pretty cool to be a part of something that big and it’s a tradition.

        1. I bet it is. Have a great night.

          1. Thank you. You as well. 🙂

            1. We did. It was a quiet one.

              1. Sometimes quiet is good. 🙂

                1. Anymore, If we have a quiet night, all is good.

                2. I continue to have mood swings. I work hard to control them.
                  Danny is frustrated with work and just about everything these days. I always feel like he is yelling at me when he starts venting. He can’t do it quietly.
                  I tend to vent if he goes on too long. I am talking hours. Not minutes.
                  Saturday nights are usually bad. He always posts a train video late at night. (As in Early Sunday Morning). By the time he is starting the process, All I want is QUIET.
                  Yet, something usually happens. Our internet is SLOW. Sometimes the video won’t upload. So he gets frustrated. Gets louder. Cusses.
                  I get mad after a while.
                  This weekend, everything went well.

                  1. So sorry. You can come for a break out here anytime. You just have to love dogs and cats. 🙂

                    1. Yes I do. Seriously, I may take you up on it some day. LOL

                    2. You are welcome anytime. 🙂
