Yes, Pride is a deadly sin under at least one rubric, but I don't much mess with that rubric anymore.
So there we were in Durham. Bro had me over there at 8 AM so he could work at Food Lion's table. Yes, Food Lion, a North Carolina company, is a sponsor of NC Pride. OK, so some Belgium bought controlling interest in Food Lion way back, but it'll remain a Salisbury company for a very long time around here.
This meant that I had about five hours of knock-around time yesterday before the parade, some of which I spent with the Mad Hatter Bakery and a large cup of coffee, all the while ignoring the guy next to me with his huge and well-worn Bible. All he received was the early morning pleasantry, as I doubt he was there to celebrate being different.
As the parade prepared to blast off, some of Bro's Dykes on Bykes (and a few trucks) friends found us. We sat in the shad with them. You'll see one's bohuncus prominently displayed in parts of this vid. Yes, she kept walking out in front.
