Happy St. Patrick’s Day

I’m not Irish, but since I married a part-Irish man, I’ll claim the day to celebrate anyway!

First off, a picture of today’s honoree:

We found all of Ireland to be most welcoming…

welcome

Everywhere, one can enjoy the verdant countyside of The Emerald Isle
*
*
green-eire
*
*
And Churches, whole and in ruins, and the lovely Celtic crosses…
*
*
church-n-cross
*
*
And the music…I LOVE the music!

Drum....Bodhran

And notice any resemblance between Hubby Dearest and the other musician? My MIL is a McNamara…the accordian player is a McNamara…those genes run strong!

Today is a good day to be Irish or even to just pretend to be Irish. So have a drink (your choice) and a nice Irish meal and raise a glass to the patron saint of a beautiful land!

Just for the record, I drink neither beer nor whiskey, so when I raise my glass I’ll be careful not to spill hot tea on you!
