Dia Dhuit,

Well St. Patricks day is upon us. It is a big thing up here where I live (especially being associated to the local pub I work for). There will be lots of games, prizes, fun, and 'green' beer all around. Lol ! Nobody ever orders the green beer, it freaks them out.
My husband is Irish, so he's ready for the day. I have to work that day so I'll be wearing plenty of green. Otherwise, I won't be able to sit for a week! LOL !
We have been selling shamrocks for the Muscular Dystrophy Association at work and have done well. There are shamrocks hanging all over the place. The names people put on them are quite funny. We've sold to country singers, movie stars....it is quite impressive..lol !

Below is a picture of Wayne, a very dear friend of ours. I took this picture of him last year sitting at his 'stump'. I had to work that day as well. Every year he grows out his beard for the winter, and then on his birthday in April he shaves it all off. He looked so much like a leprachaun I had to snap a picture of him.
Have a happy and safe St. Patricks Day to ya!!!
