St. Patty's Day Parade

Saturday was our St. Patrick's Day parade.  My DH owns an '82 DeLorean that we drive in the parade.  Ours is the one in the front.  Since we don't drive the car for most of the winter or in bad weather, this parade is usually our first time to get the car out in the spring.  And we did have a beautiful, sunny 65 degree day.

I don't really enjoy being the center of attention but it is fun to ride down the street and see the excitement on the children's faces.  Even the adults ooh and aah and clap for each entry which includes everything from antique firetrucks to clowns to floats.  Sometimes we have the best show looking at the crowd, many who come in costumes.

Often when we open the gulwing doors, the crowd breaks out in applause and cheers.  You can't help but smile back at all the happy faces and give them a wave back.  (DH calls it the queen wave. lol)

This handsome guy was resting before the parade.  Getting all fancied up just wears a guy out!  Happy St. Patrick's Day to all of you and hope you wear a little green on Thursday.

  1. What does "DH" mean? I guess that blog lingo...but I don't get it!

    You don't like being the center of attention, but does your DH? (I hope that means something...husband.) haha.


Love to hear from my readers! So join in the fun.
