St. Patrick’s Day Parade, 2011

It almost didn’t happen. Nearly everyone slated to be in the Pink Kitty “float” had to cancel. One was called in to work unexpectedly, another didn’t know what day the parade was, someone else vanished from the face of the Earth and could not be found.

So we started the day thinking it might just be Adrienne  on the float with me driving. Lame. But we ended up with five girls, including my mom, who reluctantly agreed to pilot the car. And former coworker Katie, who joined us at the last minute. Glad everything worked out.

Thanks, everyone.

What started out as a disaster ended up being awesome. Mom agreed to pilot; Katie showed up at the last minute to ride shotgun; Molly fought off sickness. Excellent save! That's Neesha and Liz in back, too.
