Yesterday I had an adventure. Went looking for the city's St. Patrick's Parade, amid pounding, driving rain. Parade was at 12 noon; I was there at 12:04. Missed it! That had to be the fastest parade on record for this or any other city. I took some pictures in the rain, lost a pair of gloves, missed a parade and basically misplaced a day to the rain. It's ok I guess. I'm still not imbibing in adult beverages, because of the meds, so I even couldn't sit back out of the rain and enjoy a Smithwick's at RiRas! Pity! But on the plus side of 'me life' ledger, if all goes well at the Doctors(blood work, xray and an echocardiogram) on St. Paddy's Day, I'll be able to enjoy an adult beverage to celebrate 10 weeks and a day post surgery. I'm sort of looking forward to that. It'll take a bit of the sting of missing that parade and pictures of that pipe band and the gals Irish step dancing. I was REALLY looking forward to that. Sheesh!
