Man...I recall eating at the Silver Dollar a couple of times back in the 90's!


Great float road test post! I love seeing the progression of the floats. So much hard work and creativity goes onto making these floats so memorable.

The baked banana pancake looked so good. Great deal on the Mister's breakfast. I like variety.

Thanks for the great pre-parade photos! :-) It's cool seeing how things are built.

Wish they had a Silver Dollar Pancake House around here...


Wow, Kirk, small world. We happened to find it only because I hate just sitting in traffic. It's a great little place...and has a tuna salad stuffed tomato on the lunch part of the menu.

Thanks, cc. I'm thinking this approach to showing progression of construction might work better. Silver Dollar is such a great place and I'm happy we finally stopped there.

We do go to a lot of 'Diner' type places around here, Soo, but Silver Dollar is a great find elsewhere. Thanks for your thanks; I'm finally figuring out how to make the float construction as well as decoration more clear. We've just done it, but sharing and being clear and concise isn't easy.


Banana pancakes sounds delicious! I kind of like the sun all white, very monotoned but very cool looking to me.


Those banana pancakes were great, Carol- baked into the batter, so a little warm. I'm going to try it that way at home. The screened in floats, with details are really good looking, but the rules of the Tournament of Roses Rose Parade are pretty specific...every visible portion must be covered in living or prior live product. There have been some features of 'black and white film' in prior years. made with lots of rice, poppy and onion seeds...
