Hollywood St. Patrick's Day Parade and Festival

Greetings my stitchy friends,

I had a complicated day today. It started out well enough. We got up early and headed down to the parade area. Well, we missed it by an hour guessed it, I failed to set the clocks forward. Regardless, we stayed for the other festivities and music. There was great original music by an Irish pub band (sorry, the name escapes me) and great rock from a U2 cover band named U2 by UV. These guys looked and sounded like U2 so much it was creepy.  The New York City Police Department Pipe Band was also on hand.

Much to my children's consternation, I managed to dance a little Irish jig and was accompanied by another woman so I wasn't alone. I had a grand time.

Then I got home and had to take care of a family medical emergency. I was so tired from the dancing and clapping and singing and eating that I was in a foul mood while in the ED and was no help to anyone. I tell you, grab the fun while its there, the misery and fear shall come so have fun while you can.

Well, here are a few pics of the day , also a short clip of the band. Wishing you all a great week and keep me and my family in your thoughts and prayers, please...we need them.
