Thanks for the Smelling Salts!

In 1946 as a sixteen-year-old, I was watching the Grand Floral Parade with sisters and friends, standing in a parking lot. It was a very hot day. I actually passed out from the heat -- and some kind ladies got smelling salts out of their car and waved them in front of my nose to bring me out of my heat exhaustion.

Then in 1947 as a seventeen-year-old, I ended up the Rose Festival Princess from Jefferson High School, riding in luxury on the Queen's float! Perhaps I even waved to those kind ladies from the year before!
