Saint Patrick's Day in Raleigh

My husband Paul, has been on the "parade committee" for 17 years and his particular job has been to oversee the Irish Village. This is held on Moore Square in downtown Raleigh and involves food, drink, entertainment, bathrooms skydivers and crowd control...not necessairily in that order...well This year, he has given the lead over to another, and did just non-profits and the dancers...which was way less stressful. Also, the parade was post-poned for a week due to terrible on the 21st of March Raleigh celebrated!!! And what a grand day it was.
The largest American flag to "fly" with a sky diver!

I have tons more photos here
Just click on Raleigh St. Patrick's Day parade and you can have a look.
Last night was the beginning of a good thing. A book club. 9 of us met...some knew each other well, others had never met. Really a nice evening. Our first book is Water for Elephants. I am looking forward to reading the book and getting to know these ladies better! Thanks Joyce and Karen for getting us organized! Neither of those ladies had met before last night. They "met" in the blog world. Isn't it a small world after all????
