St. Patrick's Day After


I considered going out for a while last night, but then I realized it was St. Patrick's night. In other words, amateur's night, and not a good night to be on the roads. Plus, most night spots were destined to be crowded, and not my idea of fun. I was too tired, anyway.

So how did my St. Patrick's Day go? It was a good one.

I did a wrap up of the Harlow Cuadra trial on Newswatch 16 This Morning. If I never say or write the words "gay porn producer" again, it will be too soon.

After that, it was a trip to Peckville to watch members of Double R Twirlettes get on buses to New York City. The group was performing at the St. Patrick's Day Parade. The kids were pumped. So were their parents. All their hard work and dedication paid off with the Twirlette's first NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade appearance.

A trip to Dunmore followed. There was a special St. Patrick's Day mass at St. Mary of Mount Carmel Church. Unfortunately, we couldn't stay for the whole thing. What we saw was well presented. The kids from St. Mary's School, just across the street from the church did a nice job with the readings, music, and dance.

It was a beautiful, sunny morning. I pulled out my camera while I was waiting for the mass to start, and this is a picture of the steeple.

I hope your St. Patrick's Day was a good one.
