|Mom's view of the parade|
So here are some of the other pictures Mom took:
This is Roscoe, who is a Jack Russell terrier. He walked the whole parade on 3 legs, because that's all the legs he has!
Here are a bunch of people putting the tail of the dachshund into his read end. After it is in there, it can be wagged. Those hoop things are what the people inside the dog use to hold it up.
These are some members of the North Kansas City High School marching band, waiting for the parade to start. I think maybe that boy and girl like each other quite a bit. Anyway, Mom did not see her own high school band, but she thinks they probably were there someplace. Mom went to Oak Park High School, and NKC High School was their biggest rival.
Aunt Jana, who is on the left, bought a new hat just for the parade, and also some new hair. Aunt Silvia wore some funny St. Patrick's Day stuff, too.
Buttons is a very cute dog with a curly, spitz-type tail. Mom didn't get a very good picture of him because he kept jumping up on her instead of posing nicely for a picture.
Clowns wear really funny clothes and great big shoes. Also they have red noses. They look pretty goofy and a little scary, too. When Mom took this picture, she broke one of the Important Rules of photography because she made it look like a pole was growing out of that one clown's head.
This is the sheltie rescue float, but it was after the parade, and Mom couldn't get a very good picture of it. The float shows a bunch of different important parts of North Kansas City history, and the shelties are dressed up to match. Mom especially remembers the Katz Drug Store that you can see the sign for on the front of the float. The sheltie group got the second-place prize in the parade, but we don't know how much money they got for that.
When the parade was all over with, everybody packed up and went home. The dachshund got folded up and put in the back of Aunt Laura and Uncle Jeff's truck. I guess he lives at their house in between St. Patrick's Days, but I think he must take up a lot of space. I wonder if he eats very much.
