Couldn’t have enjoyed Grand Marshalling today’s St. Patrick’s parade in Grand Forks more if I tried. We started at Widman’s Candy, where George continues to celebrate his 90th birthday, and ended at Kelly’s bar. How appropriate. If anyone has pictures, e-mail them to me at email@example.com and I’ll post them here.
During the parade, Pat McClean’s (approximately) twelve inch, green bow tie caught my eye. I suspect he really is Irish. Big Dog Pat Mars and his better half had their big dogz out for the parade. I enjoyed seeing them. (The Mars, too.)
The Masons hosted the parade once again this year and once again had a great turn-out of parade watchers and participants. Thanks, Bill Steckler, for the invitation.
