People Go Marching By

A small group of people, complete with a little marching band, came past our place on the evening of March 25th 2017. In fact, they came past a few times, playing their marching music as they went.

We have no idea why though. I checked in all the usual places, but I couldn't find anything mentioned about any event we'd forgotten was on that may have had people marching through the town. Unless, of course, this was an extension of the marches happening that day in London because of how the government has still not figured things out about this leaving the EU thing, and people are trying to influence their decision one way or another. Personally, I just want them to figure out what they're doing, and then get on with doing it... This has gone on WAY too long now! Actually, they do appear to have finally handed in our official notice to leave the EU, though apparently it will take about two years to finalize. It's going to be an interesting two years... *Sigh*

But, anyway, it might have been to do with that, it might have been something else entirely, like a part I didn't know was happening for some of the things happening around here to celebrate Spring (which there were several of throughout March, as I'm sure you can imagine). I honestly haven't got a clue.

Either way, Kelly grabbed a couple of photos during one of their trips past our place, so here they are:

I don't know enough about Brexit to be sure, but it doesn't strike me as a smart idea. Still, living in limbo is no good either. But fun to have the marching go by your place! A little action and music too!

Honestly? I don't know enough about it to be sure either, and I'm technically caught up in it. But, if you want my opinion, I think we'd have been better off staying part of the EU, and if we insist on leaving,should have had a proper plan in place so things could have been handled better, since the whole situation has been a mess from start to finish, and most of the mess is caused by nobody actually knowing what the plan is supposed to be. We can potentially make it work, but not if we don't get our act together and start working as a whole country to do so.

No clue by the marchers, either. No signs or anything. Just balloons. Something to liven up your day, anyways. ;)

Absolutely... The marching music was fun to listen to, if nothing else. ;)

Indeed! Though I never did find out what it was all about...
