Another check off my San Antonio Bucket List — The Ford Holiday River Parade on the Riverwalk in downtown San Antonio.

https://www.thesanantonioriverwalk.com/events/ford-holiday-river-parade

I’ve always wanted to come see the lights on the Riverwalk after Thanksgiving, but never did. This year I was able to reserve a seat at The Tobin Center, since I’m s season ticket holder. It was an area just for season ticket holders, so I didn’t have to deal with the crowd that comes down for this event.

It was a beautiful night, in the 70’s. The parade was fun, Christmas music in the air. It was a very nice night to be out in San Antonio.

Next year, hopefully I will be with someone special to share this with.

Happy Birthday, Brad Keesler

Today is my nephew, Brad Keesler’s birthday. I remember when my sister, Cynthia, told me when she was pregnant with Brad. And ever since that moment, I have been 100% in love with him.

I am the luckiest person in the world to have such a wonderful young man as my nephew.

I hope you have a fantastic birthday, Brad. The best is yet to come and you are a shining star!

I love you more than words can say. Thank you to my sister, Cynthia and brother-in-law, Dan for bringing Brad into this world and to my niece, Pam for just you!
Your Aunt

And, what kind of Aunt would I be if I didn’t post a picture of when you were little??!!

Happy July 4th

Happy 4th of July!

Thought I would Google and refresh my memory on what today is.

Independence Day, also referred to as the Fourth of July or July Fourth, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and were no longer part of the British Empire. The Congress actually voted to declare independence two days earlier, on July 2.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Happy Fat Tuesday

Here’s a holiday that I like.

Happy Fat Tuesday!

“Laissez les bons temps rouler!” (“Let the good times roll!)

Mardi Gras also called Shrove Tuesday, or Fat Tuesday, in English, refers to events of the Carnival celebrations, beginning on or after the Christian feasts of the Epiphany (Three Kings Day) and culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday”, reflecting the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season. (From Wikipedia)

Make it a great day.

Merry Christmas
