A Year Wiser

I celebrated a significant milestone yesterday.  I turned a year older.

This year I got an orchid.

The powers-that-be knows it because the sun was shining brightly and everyone was out and about.

As we were walking through the town square, we saw a marching band.

I can’t remember the last time I saw one of this.  It only brings me back memories of my highschool years in the Philippines.

I’m not sure if it was a rehearsal for a bigger event, but these girls did pretty well with their performance.

It looked like there were other groups too.

This little darling looks so cute in her majorette outfit.  Too bad we missed her performance.

Meanwhile, as we walked through the other side of town, this is what we saw.

I remember the last time I saw a stunt like this was 5 years ago on Venice beach.  Gee, I’m old.

But I love my little town.  It has a its small old town feel that brings me back pleasant memories of years past.

I really did turn a year wiser!

Let’s drink to that.  Na Zdravi!

  3. I just stopped by to say thank you for following my blog, and for the like. I look forward to reading about your town and learning more about the Czech Republic, as it’s one place I have never been. I have been to Manila, though, many, many years ago. Belated Happy Birthday.
