The alliance of Dentists, Diet and Dialysis Centers thanks the Utah legislature for keeping candy in our schools

Never let it be said that I am afraid to make a fool of myself in the name of good, clean fun. No, not I.

The St. Patrick's Day Parade in our town generally has more participants than viewers, and many of us enter in the "novelty" category. This year's entry focused on the wisdom of our state legislators deciding to keep vending machines in the public schools to keep receiving the money generated, despite health issues for kids who choose Frito's over the hot lunch. The kids along the route enjoyed cheering for M&Ms on the hoof, regardless of the sarcasm, but the parents liked us even more. The only unhappy folk were Claire and Hannah, riding in the stroller and feeling chilly, even under the heavy duty felt Reese's bags I made them wear.

Hey honey, was that peanut butter you put in my chocolate?


  1. Two words come to mind: "hysterical" and "insane." It looks like you had fun!

  2. Looks like it was fun. Great pictures.
