On Saturday Davis attended his very first parade at the Mule Days festival in Benson, NC. He sat captivated throughout the longest parade I have every witnessed. There were bands and flag girls, ROTC marchers, antique tractors, Shriner clowns and go cart and golf cart stunts, cheerleaders, beauty queens, hillbillies, and of course horses and plenty of mules. Today, Davis was asked what his favorite part of the parade was and he replied, “The girls.” That was no surprise to any of us though. Here’s why – one of the beauty queens stopped right in front of us and waved right at Davis. When Davis returned the wave, she blew him a kiss. He immediately raised his hand to his lips and blew a kiss right back…I think she was smitten…and so was he.
