Land ho! Get ready to throw candy at the natives, gang!
Lovelies everywhere in Viking land

 Today is my grandgirl Maddy's birthday and, of course, there's this little parade that happens each year on this date in downtown Roanoke. Maddy has always thought it was because of her birthday. We have not disabused her of the notion.

This year, Jeff Rigdon invited Mads to join him and a pretty large group of Vikings--with their boat--to celebrate her birthday in real style and Maddy did just that.

Jeff is a hero to her and to me. The way he organizes people for a good time is impressive. Good guy, that one.
