I went to our St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Binghamton yesterday. I know, I know, why so early you’re wondering? It’s because we get pipe bands from New York City’s Emerald Society and Philadelphia and, as you see here, even Athens, Pa., and they have to be home on the 17th.
     This must have been the coldest parade day I can remember. I was shooting video of the crowds and pipe bands for research for another novel I’m working on. The name of the pipe band pictured here just cracked me up.
