  • Double nickle weather will greet weekend parade

    It’s supposed to be 55 degrees and partly sunny Saturday afternoon when Cynthiana’s annual Christmas parade rolls through Cynthiana.
    The double nickels will be balmy compared to some Christmas parades past.
    I believe I’ve covered the parades since the beginning of time, well maybe not that long, but certainly my fair share.
    I’ve stood on Pike Street while a brisk wind would deal snow flakes through the buildings and land them peacefully in the path of floats and horses.

    Early one Saturday morning I was on the treadmill at the gym watching “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” on the TV in front of me.
    TLWW is the first of C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia allegorical series about a wonderland that’s taken hostage by an evil witch.
    In the part of the movie that caught my attention, the boy Edmund finds himself in Narnia, in the snow, shivering in his p.j.s, robe and slippers.
