A scheduled lunch date on Monday didn't pan out due to my friend not feeling well. (Hope you're better now!) I decided to try to salvage the day by attending the local Saint Patrick's Day parade. And it was a good time.
The absolute best part of the parade for me was the Bouncing Team. I don't know much about them, but they use a circular blanket to throw young women high into the air and then catch them again safely. I walked along the sidewalk with them and finally managed to get a pretty good photo.
I won't get the chance to do it myself, but I'm trying to decide whether that would be fun or frightening. Maybe both.
