The Saint Patrick's day parade in Boston was a ton of fun. This year we made it on TV as well! The Honor Guard got to spread out and make some otherwise unhappy little kids along the parade route smile by giving them high fives and saying hi. It was a great day for everyone. It took us about 3 hours to make it to the end. After everyone was loaded onto the bus I had to figure out away to get back to the starting point to hitch a ride with a friend back home. Turns out on Saint Patrick's day even cabbies will say no if it means to much traffic. Myself and a shipmate had to hoof it back. So even with the dehydration, sunburn and incredibly sore back we all still managed to end with a smile of accomplishment.
I also this week decided to drop a class and add another. I just added Detective Literature, we are reading the Sherlock Holmes series. Its something different then the monotonous same old classes.
