I didn't finish up my blogs about our annual St. Patrick day celebration so here's the rest of the story. We actually skipped town for the weekend (DW found a great deal on a nice little B&B at Table Rock Lake for the weekend) but the celebration continued. Saturday morning was the annual parade and we hear a good time was had by all. The student board in charge of the celebration and many of their alumni get up early in the morning and literally paint the streets green. It is quite a sight to see. For a small town, they put on a pretty good parade and then finish it off with a nice concert at the downtown bandshell. Unfortunately, after a beautiful Friday with a high in the upper 70s it turned cold on Saturday but they still have a pretty good crowd for all the events. Now things are more or less back to normal. We are now in the middle of Spring Break and getting ready for the final push to the end of the semester. I sure needed this break!
