Sunday was when the annual Fiesta Days Parade is held in McHenry.
I arrived a little early and walked down the line-up of entries.
And, what did I see?
It was McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks chatting with one of his volunteers.
Next in my viewfinder I spotted 16th District Republican congressional hopeful Jim Marter.
Across the railroad tracks I found the Republican Party contingent.
On the way back to my shady spot in front of Plum Garden, I saw Franks again.
