I went to the St. Patrick's Day Parade in the city Sunday afternoon. It was blustery cold but without snow. Unlike parades in bigger cities, this one ran about 30 minutes, but with lots of Irish enthusiasm. The Stillson School of Irish Dance is a quite popular ensemble that got the crowd clapping, when they stopped to dance. I like to watch step dancing. When we hit Downtown Disney in Orlando, we always enjoy a visit to Raglan Road, a true Irish Pub, mostly built in Ireland and lugged over to the middle of Florida. They always have some fun dancing entertainment, while you're sipping a pint. Don't know what it is about it, but I can sit mesmerized and captivated watching Riverdance or Flatley's Lord of the Dance on PBS. Would love to see a show LIVE. Maybe it's the loud, rhythmic sounds of tapping. Maybe it's the costumes. Maybe it's the hair. Maybe all the Irish faces. I'm under their spell. Happy St. Paddy's Day! I'm the cook tonight. I'm preparing corn beef and cabbage and all the fixin's for Marchin, Annie's Mom and Elenka. Wish me the 'luck of the Irish'.
