Greetings From Waldo

There's a lovely written personal account and consideration of Kansas City's St Patrick's Day Parade, at Greetings From Waldo by Bridget Heos.

Bridget, who has written for KC Magazine, The Kansas City Star, and Kansas City Homes and Gardens, also remembers going to the parade as child:
At that time, the only danger at the parade was some drunkard burning you with a cigarette or spilling beer on your lederhosen. (For some reason, my mom would dress me in an Irish sweater and lederhosen, and as we marched in the parade, grownups would heckle me for wearing German clothes.)
Heos also has a business website for her free-lance writing and editing services.

I love her writing - used to read her in the Wednesday magazine faithfully!
