SAVANNA MAKES A FLASHY SPLASH ON MADISON AVENUE - Vivid Girl Savanna Samson lives in a midtown Manhattan apartment six floors above Madison Avenue. On St. Patrick's Day morning some of the marchers got quite a surprise as they marched over to nearby Fifth Avenue for the annual parade. "I woke up early to the sound of the soldiers marching up Madison Avenue chanting a cadence," says Savanna. "It was very exciting. I felt compelled to open my bedroom window and yell, 'Hey Boys!' I waved at the guys when they looked up, then flashed my breasts. Needless to say I messed up their rhythm. But it felt like old times, when I used to flash the workers in a Times Square building that was being built across the street from where I lived at the time."
