Luck O' The Top O' The

New London has the cutest St. Patrick's Day Parade in all the land, and Saturday was its fifth installation.

Did I mention cute?

Did I?

Because we are *cute*.

New London Mayor Daryl Justin Finizio and Coast Guard Academy Rear Adm. Sandra L. Stosz were co-Grand-Marshals.

And Blumey was in the house . . .

. . . as were the Coasties, in Full Regalia.

Oh, everyone was in the house.

And the audience was adorable.


Oh, how we love our Whalers.

Especially this trumpet player . . .

Pure Awesome.

Exuberance ruled the day . . .

. . . oh look! Exuberant friends!

Never ask kilt-wearers what they're wearing under their kilts . . .

. . . you don't want to know . . .

Yay, us!

St. Francis de Peter . . .

. . . and the fabulous In The Pink women . . .

Mistah went to Cohanzie Elementary School so he's a sucker for all things Cohanzie.

. . . and the fabulous sights:

This was our favorite Man O' the Day.

And what is a St. Patrick's Day Parade without the Young Babe Brigade?

And the youngest babe of all:

. . . our new little friend Penny.

Meanwhile, back at the Tavern . . .

I've never seen the parade, but why do I need to?

I have Mistah's photos to look at, plus I get to hang out in the best Tavern in the world, serving the good peeps of New London mother's milk Guinness.

Yay, us!

Seriously. Yay.

Apparently Mistah takes this photo of me every year.

But let's get back to that cute young babe of ours . . .

Penny was really mad when the cannons woke her up . . .

. . . but her lovely family was there for comfort and support . . .

. . . and next year she's slated to be Grand Marshal.

The Dutch on St. Patty's day, does it get any better than that?

The parade does look like a good ol' time, but I do believe mother's milk at the best tavern in the world trumps it.

Penny was the best part of the parade :)
