BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Saint Patrick's Day Memories in Savannah

I lived in Savannah, Ga for many years. Savannah has the second largest St. Patty's Day celebration in the country. One of the favorite units in the parade is the local Shriner's Alee Temple, Oriental Band, which consisted of a bunch of fun- loving guys who enjoy dressing up in outlandish outfits (including gold painted brogans, with turned up toes and bells) and playing funny instruments. The parade crowd goes crazy when the Oriental Band strolls by.

EVERYONE IS IRISH ON ST. PATTY'S DAY,

including my Polish Dad!

Knowing your dad didn't normally wear pink makes the picture all that more fun. Great memories of your hometown.
