"People from a planet without flowers
would think we must be mad with joy the whole time
to have such things about us."

The Irish are Laughing Today.


Some may say the glass is half empty...


Some may say the glass is half full.

But the Irish will forever say...

"ARE YOU GONNA DRINK THAT?"

An Irish Wish
May there always be work for your hands to do,
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine warm on your windowpane,
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you,
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone.

Thanks to Rick Luquette for his collection of Irish sayings.

I am making Irish potato fritters right now!

You know how it is we use potatoes for any kind of leftover we can figure...

That drink looks good to me right now. Great minds much think alike because I, too, posted an Irish blessing -- there are so many wonderful ones.

Happy St. Paddy's Day!

A great St. Patrick's post for today. I really liked the verse you shared. Nicely done.

There's a lot of sweet sentiment in that saying - I wish all of the same to you, too!
