Here we go:
1. Saturday night at 6:00 is the Mathews Lighted Christmas Parade at the court house. This is probably my favorite land-based parade, and I've been to my fair share of parades.
2.a. That same evening, there's a lighted boat parade at Yorktown. The boat parades are always fun, always beautiful and sometimes good for a laugh (see #3 below), but I must attend the Mathews land parade. It's tradition.
2.b. The first time I attended the Yorktown boat parade was from the Gloucester Point side of the river. One really big boat--all decked out in sparkly lights, replete with blow-up Santa Clauses and extremely
3. I went to the DMV (Division of Motor Vehicles) two times in one week for the exact same transaction--and almost had to come back a third time. This is after I had tried three times via internet and twice by phone to complete said transaction. On the last trip in person, I actually had to use vacation time. Because everyone wants to spend their vacation in the DMV, right?
But this, dear reader, is a story for another time.
So, there are my three things. Now it's your turn. Have at it.
