in preparation

been a couple of years since i viewed the Quiet Man. One of the films i viewed before my first trip to Ireland.
The Field is so intense. Loved it
my viewing the past few days, getting in the spirit! I get homesick for Ireland this time of year. I so much would love to live there for awhile! That is at the top of my bucket list

cottleville's st pat's

we ha nice weather for the parade, somewhat warm, sunny and windy.
I walked a mile to get a spot got there 1 1/2 hours before the start and right before the parade, 2 giants (very tall people, i'm only five feet 2 inches,) planted themselves right in front of me. I understood, they had a little one that wanted to see the parade, but they wouldn't stand still, I finally crossed the street and had a much better view
this young guy is a up and coming fighter The Irish
outlaw" He's been at other events i've attended decked out dog. He received more beads than anyone who was close to me
St Patrick, all most missed him
nothing says St Patrick's Day more than a faux
Elvis .
