Little Leprechauns

As threatened promised, we are not quite done with the magical moment that was the New London St. Patrick's Day Parade around these parts.

Today, we're looking at portraits of our lucky little Leprechauns.....

First, fortification . . .

. . . well, if you can get past the fierce bouncer.

And then, the start of the Parade . . .

. . . and already pooped.

Leprechaun Vendor (Timberwolves??)

Slips!

Hirsh

The much-talked-about woman watching the parade from Crocker House

St. Francis De Peter

Aw

Elissa Patch

I love this dude.

Taavi

Mr. Irish Man. Who I want to take home.

Miss Connecticut. Well, it IS a parADE.

Irish Step Dancer. With an unruly wig.

There is nothing better than a high school girl marching with a giant tuba. Or french horn. Or bassoon.
Or any class of giant brass instrument.

Stationary-bike-riding-atop-a-car-man

These middle school girls kill me . . .

. . . just kill me.

Hsinny-Girl . . .

. . . and young Jellyroll

Katie, on her last day on the job.

Mr Dibble, sir.

Oh, what a lovely rendition of Amazing Grace she did . . .

Our young lad again, but I can't help it; just look at this photo of him in Gary's arms.

See you in the Sweet Sixteen tonight, SDSU-Boy.

"What da?"

Record Lady Daphne

Hot Rod

I like these bagpiper-fife-and-drum types. I love them, really.

Rich!

Angela

The end of a perfect day . . .

As one of my customers -- who got the Tavern's first Guinness of the day -- said on St. Patrick's Morn, "I look forward to this day the other 364 days a year."

See you next year, my Leprechauns!

I think Ms. Connecticut should have been wearing the fuzzy leprachuan hat.

Well, Mistah just informed me that a bassoon is not a brass but a woodwind.

I looked it up and he's right.

I think I meant to say:

There is nothing better than a high school girl marching with a giant tuba. Or french horn. Or sousaphone.

Or any class of giant brass instrument.


Oh, how I love the sousaphone. It's named after John Philip Sousa (Schleckah knew that part, too).

Oh, how I love the sousaphone.
