We had a small parade in town today to escort the Holiday Tree to the square where it will be decorated and on display for the season. Portland's wonderful police were on hand to control traffic and a credit union's pig mascot was there to mingle with the peeps. Just as the parade was about to start, the pig mascot saw the police, the police saw the pig mascot, they all recognized the irony, broke ranks, and to the delight of about 100 people with cameras posed for an impromptu group photo. One more reason why I love this place.
(Note to the credit union - A pig for a mascot? Really?)
