I see by your outfit that you are a cowboy

“Among the floats, marching bands, and gigantic balloons of Chicago’s BMO Harris Bank Magnificent Mile Lights Festival will be a horse-drawn surrey from Lyric Opera of Chicago…. [I]n the surrey will be Lyric Opera general director Anthony Freud, dressed in appropriate western garb. Freud, who hails from London, spent five years as the general director of Houston Grand Opera and is no stranger to bolo ties and 10-gallon Stetsons.”

    I live two blocks from Michigan Avenue (Magnificent Mile) but usually don’t attend the Parade. I am surprised that Rennay, in her Thais costume will not be on the float with Freud.
    Now if Freud were surrounded by pretty, semi-clad cowboys, I’d be there in a heartbeat. ;+) Il Fanciullo del Mid-West

      Clita dear, didn’t you know? Renay will be right there next to Roy ‘Freud’ Rogers wearing her Dale Evans costume. Harumpf! Carpetbagging imposters -- neither of them could ride a bronco all the way to the corral.
