"Don't give cherries to pigs or advice to fools." ~ Irish proverb
"Ladies and gentlemen, what you are seeing is a total disregard for the things St. Patrick's Day stands for. All this drinking, violence, destruction of property, are these the things we think of when we think of the Irish?" ~ Kent Brockman, The Simpsons
"Ye'll not be stopping me world domination plans, Mr. Bond! Now, where's me Lucky Charms?" ~ Lucky The Leprechaun, From Dublin With Love
Now I want to see 007 in From Dublin With Love.
Two quick shots of one of our St. Patricks in the parade- I believe there was another one further back, but I was on the move south with the parade at this point, instead of against it.
You might have noticed the building behind the float in this shot in yesterday's post as well. It is a branch for the Bank of Nova Scotia, and it dates back over 120 years. I've always liked this one; it is much more pleasing to the eye than the branches built these days.
If you haven't had a look, take a peek at my writer's blog- yesterday I posted a nod to today. Happy St. Patrick's Day! Slainte!
