Soo @ hungryones

Thanks for the float update! Looks like they are almost done. :-) I wish I had a burger and onion rings right now...

Ed (from Yuma)

Your T of R float posts usually "float" my boat. It is amazing how they are designed and assembled. It looks so easy on New Years Day.


That was cool seeing the float in collapsed form. These will look amazing on New Year's Day. As always, great update Cathy. This is certainly a treat that not all people get to see or appreciate.


Pastrami burger, was like County Fair food for breakfast! We never saw any road tests for two of the floats-the Sikh and Farmers Insurance, but the drawings make each look magnificent. (Added a link to the last line of this post).

It really is a year of work, Ed. I'll add a YouTube link of an episode of "Dirty Jobs" showing the cleanup of the floats after I post the last of 2016, which will be around the first week of January...ironically.

Thank you for the kind words, cc. I try to convey an understanding in my posts, no matter the subject, but it's not easy. The Mister and I were fascinated to drive a new to us route around the Pasadena area that day.


wow, I avoid traffic like the plague, that sounds pretty epic... but your meal looks like a good consolation prize! I haven't ever had pastrami burger, does that have both pastrami and burger?


Considering we left home before 5 a.m. and didn't park until 7:30, when sometimes we can be parking at 7:50 (with our usual stops at Starbucks and Cream Pan each trip), this was crazy traffic, FH. Yes, a 1/3 lb burger topped with fried up/griddle top cooked pastrami, a heavy, huge burger.

I think I need to do a post about one side street trip we took (again, because of traffic) a few years ago. It seemed that every restaurant (and Taco Shop) had 'pastrami' on their signage...for miles. It must be a Los Angeles thing.
