Weeks ago I promised phtotos of our winning July 4th float. These were recently sent to me by long-time friend Janet Sigler.
Dave Frum is driving the truck. David Tweedie is providing fiddle music on the tailgate. Jim Fineman from Manteo (in the yellow slicker in the second photo) was passing out information about Mad Mag Howard. Mag is played by Lou Ann in the purple dress. She, Mad Mag that is, is locally famous for a number of odd behaviors, not the least of which was cooking one of the island cats for her husband's dinner! I am portraying Mag's husband, John Sime Howard, pulling the cat out of the pot.
We had a great time, and you may remember that we won 2nd place. Some day I'll publish the entire story of Mag. Til then, enjoy the photos.
