Observations and views from a different set of eyes

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

on March 17, 2013


I can smell the corned beef and cabbage; I can hear the radio playing “Danny Boy” and the clink of glasses tipped in toasts to St. Paddy!  Aye, it’s a Grand day to be Irish!


Now, if you have been celebrating since daybreak and you’ve started looking like these two fine lads; you might want to start thinking about a cab for the ride to the old homestead!

No matter what, Danny and I want to wish you a very safe, and Happy St. Paddy’s Day!  Moving-animated-dancing-cows-drinking-green-beer And may you celebrate until the cows come home.

I’ll leave you with an old Irish poem to bless you in the upcoming year!

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

May God be with you and bless you;
May you see your children’s children.
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings,
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.

May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.

    Unfortunately corned beef here, (hubby is of all things allergic to beef) Dinner here tonight looks like Bob Evans sausage on a bagel and cranberry juice.

    I meant no corned beef, gah it looks like my keyboard is acting up again, no idea why it does that sometimes. I push the keys, but it doesn’t always register that I type them. This laptop is annoying that way LOL
