I got caught up with the merriment of the parade and when the mimes passed by, I put my hand to my ear like I couldn't hear them. Well, the last one in line there came over and I thought we were going to get into an argument. After a couple of hand movements, he ended with the "OK" sign and I said "OK". Don't mess with mimes! The band was good, but I don't know their names. I LOVED the bird!
