Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Richard and I headed over to the innaugural St. Patrick's Day parade in Vankleek Hill last Sunday. I grabbed the few green things I owned...


Richard looked a little more the part and channelled his inner Leprechaun.


Some sported buttons celebrating St. Pat.


While others drank green beer and wore a green hat.



There were Irish Wolfhounds strutting their stuff...


While other dogs just seemed to have had enough.


Some horses were painted green in various spots...


...and other horses wore green and covered with shamrocks.


And because we're still in the country afterall, the parade stopped for horses to receive pats.


Best of all? Elvis was definitely in the building. Was he wearing spats?
Happy St. Paddy's Day to one and all!

Found your blog through Knatolee's World. Looks like a fun parade but I took a look-see at some of your earlier posts and I see that you are a great baker and love cats, too. I'm your new follower from around the corner. Deb=^..^=x5 Carleton Place, Ont.
