When Irish Eyes Aren't Smiling

St Patrick's Parade 2015-03-14 17

You remember the old song. However, not everyone found the parade to be a barrel o'laughs. Some people just have a serious air about them.

Top: uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. Bottom, a U.S. Marine Corps band. I don't know why they wore fatigues and combat boots rather than dress uniforms. You may have heard that St. Louis has some mean streets.

You've got me smilin' with your first shot. Reminds of a Jesuit I once had for Chemistry. Shudder.

Omigoodness! I was there the same day! I only had a few free hours but dashed out towards the end of the festivities. It looked like folks had a grand time.

No smiles here. Guy next to the king needs an outfit.
