Possible RR Anderson Sighting at Jr. Daffodil Parade?

Ever wonder what RR Anderson does on the weekend?

Golfing at Canterwood Golf Course with his fraternity alumni brothers in Callway golf shoes?

Today, watching the Junior Daffodil Parade, I watched group after group parade down Proctor. 

Then, the North End Montessori group marched down the street.  Another nice children's group.  Yet, there seemed something amiss.  Something not quite normal about one of the figures in the crowd.

The wide stance and deliberate presence broadcast that this figure was not another parent in costume shuffling along the parade route (as I did later) but the presence of a "street performer" in the midst of the crowd. 

I am pleased to report that I was able to discern RR Anderson in full costume in the group identifiable only by his signature "surreal" trench coat at the far corner of the street.



Another Jr. Daffodil Parade?
  Look closer:



(RR Anderson is believed to be the figure on the left)

Try as I could, however, I found no sign of RR's wife's Ms. Darcy.  If she was there, her costume was too authentic for me to discern her presence.

Funny.

Tacoma is blessed by 24- 7 entertainment by you RR.

RR has posted some more pictures. Here, a few more of the "inside view":

RR has stated in one of his notes to one of my pictures that Little Red Riding Hood was in fact Ms. Darcy. Hard to believe.

twisted trivia: Little Red Riding Hood caries the unborn child of The Big Bad Wolfman in her womb.

We so do NOT need more parades. ;)

Evidence one ... formerly-excited-but-now-I'm-just-cold boy riding in a wagon with the two sisters at the end of the TNT's photostream (you have to click to the last one): www.thenewstribune.com/942/story/327700....

Sigh. I told him to bring his coat, but no ...

Now he believes me. For today.

I didn't see RR but I did see the lonely guy from University Place marching in the Parade. He was the guy with the bare mid-riff exposed. Sorry, no picture available.
