across the street from you…

I love the name of this bar – Drunken Monkey - the local merchants do not.

Kammy - I sure enjoyed the pictures. You evidently were across the street from the building that I worked in (upstairs) way back in the 1950s. We loved the 7 years that we lived in Ft. Collins - great college years! Happy St. Pats to you. Sally

Hello Kammy~ I love your blog. Looked like a great St. Patrick's Day parade. Great photos! Colorado is a beautifully majestic state! My mother and father-in law lived in Guffey for a time during their retired years. It was so wonderful to visit them there. They had the most beautiful woodland wild flowers I've ever seen in one place. Thank you for stopping by Redbuds and Wrens and leaving your nice comment. I look forward to visiting your blog often. ~Kris

I had so much fun looking at you pics of the parade. I remember when I lived in Astoria Queens, from where I am originally, we never failed to go to the Manhattan parade...than we would have lunch there and spent the whole day shopping or whatever...mind you, I'm not Irish.
Love to have you visit me at Kathleen's. Happy St. Patty's Day.
