The year's first LCF Tournament of Roses Association Happy Hour held at the home of Elysa and Steve Del Guercio attracted some 80 floaters, and judging from the activity at the appetizer table and the full-sized "saloon" bar, they were indeed a happy group.

I?m kind of sad now that the torch has been extinguished and the Olympic flag lowered in Beijing. We have to wait four more years before the ultimate summer sports competition will once take center stage in London, England. The Chinese set an extremely high benchmark for extravagant entertainment at the opening ceremonies. I?m not sure that it will ever be matched ? it was a show of shows! I wouldn?t be surprised if the people throughout China also feel a little sad that the games are over.

Otis and others started the band in 1994 when Pat was president of LCFTRA and the float for the 1995 Rose Parade was "The Wright Stuff."

On a recent Saturday morning, six Boy Scouts from St. George's Troop 502 arrived at the LCF Tournament of Roses float site on Hampton Road ready for four hours of whatever work might be assigned. Sharlyn French, head decorator for the LCF TRA, was waiting with several chores, the first of which was to trim the bushes that were encroaching on the decorating site. Patrol Leader Brandon Gardner, a junior at Crescenta Valley High School, explained that eight hours of community service are needed to earn a Citizenship in Community merit badge, one of the 25 merit badges required to become an Eagle Scout.

Members of the La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Assn. memorialized one of their own Saturday morning in a ceremony behind the Foothill Municipal Water District, where they dedicated an inscribed drinking fountain to longtime “floater” Carol Imbriale. Imbriale joined the Tournament of Roses Assn. after moving to La Cañada in 1983. She tirelessly built and decorated the city's annual entries in the Rose Parade, serving as chair of the decorating committee for a time and co-driving the float twice in her long tenure.

Oh my, Mother Nature is stirring the pot a wee bit too vigorously. Oppressive heat and melting humidity have been the ingredients for her bubbling summer stew. My antique air conditioner just can't keep up and I'm wilting. How about you? A couple of days ago when the weather was breaking all sorts of heat index records; there wasn't even a whisper of a breeze to cool us down. This simply isn't the California I grew up in when my mother, as the sun was just setting, would raise all the windows in our front and dining rooms and the cross breeze was so refreshing.

Summer is humming lazily along in its happy way. I've been enjoying the soft rhythm as the days and evenings unfold. The only thing that would make summer better would be if we had lightnin' bugs that flitted by with their tiny illuminations - you know, the kind that you see in the South and used to catch in jars so that you could see where the light was coming from. They didn't stay in the jar for long; we always let them fly away. The music beat goes on, too. “Music in the Park” tonight will feature the sound of Jack Lantz's Big Band.

In case you are thinking of stopping by the La Cañada float-decorating site today or Friday to volunteer to place flowers on "3-2-1-Dig!" before it heads to Pasadena for its New Year's Day trip down Colorado Boulevard, please know that your enthusiasm is appreciated but the volunteer shifts for "petal pushers" have been filled this year, according to Sarah Marshall, who oversees the workers' schedules. If you or your favorite teen did not have a chance to lend a hand decorating the float this year, you might want to consider doing so next year.
