Pom Poms and Parades

It was a great weekend
Caitlin’s cheer leading team won the National Championships!
It was amazing because one of the girls twisted her knee.She had to leave the stage in pain and the other girls had milliseconds to decide how to hit their stunts.I can't believe they pulled it off! We are talking throwing people up in the air with part of the base catching them gone! Not the way they practiced at all!
The child who was hurt is okay.
We had a wonderful visit with Stacey and Craig. They always make us feel so welcome and cared for.
The St Patrick’s Day parade fascinates me. They fling potatoes, onions, carrots from decorated trucks into the crowd,so you can take them home to make corned beef and cabbage.
Which brings me to my epiphany of the week....we here on the coast would run pick up a dog turd if you sprinkled glitter on it and threw it at us from a slow-moving vehicle...we love a parade!

The dog turd comment almost had me snorting coffee out my nose!  It's true though, if some one's throwing something people will be in line to catch it!  ~~Kath~~
