We Salute the Irish!


Today's the day we salute the Irish!  I wish there was a day reserved to salute every foreign country.  Wouldn't it be fun to dress up and learn about the cultures of, say, Albania, or Bolivia, or Cameroon every year?  Oh well, at least the Irish are a colorful, proud, historic people with great native costumes, music and food.  Makes for some fun parades around this country of ours.  Which gives me a chance to shamelessly post some more pictures of our trip to Seattle last weekend, where there was a terrific (albeit wet) St. Patrick' Day parade taking place.  We watched it from near the Seattle Public Library.  Love the kilts and the bagpipes!
