Happy St. Patrick’s Day,

~ from me to you!

* Sending the luck

of the Irish

to you and yours.

* May you always

have the wind

at your back.

* Hope you don’t

get caught not

wearing green

and get pinched!

πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

* Well, lads and lassies,

I will be heading off

to work with my

shamrock cookies,

for my friends there.

* No Irish creme in

coffee nor an

Irish jig.

  1. D’you know the most wonderful thing I experienced in Ireland when we lived mostly there … lining the baby’s crib. Each of my babes had coins tucked into their pram-liners as good luck. I still have em all in boxes marked with their names …. it’s quite beautiful. As are the faeries πŸ˜‰

    • Osyth, what a charming Irish tradition. πŸ™‚ I love how you can baby crib a “pram.” The pram-liner with coins and then, your saving them is precious. Someday the children will receive more than good luck. They may be valuable. The faeries are quite Fey. xo

      • I felt really privileged to experience the last of the real old world Ireland – having the babies was somehow a ticket to the party as it is in many Mediterranean countries which Ireland and the Irish have more in common with than the English. Joining the EU and the rise of the Celtic tiger squashed much of that naive charm but it’s still there if you scratch the surface hard enough – or sprinkle liberally the faerie dust πŸ˜‰

    • I am sad that you taught me there are changes which need faerie dust, dear. Sometimes we may not see with our eyes wide open what struggles other countries are going through. Thank you for being both informative and enlightening. ❀

    • Thanks, Amy. I had corned beef, cabbage, carrots and celery for dinner at my son’s house. The kids played Apples and Oranges while I learned Hendrix can roll and “scootch” across the room. So fun and funny, too. πŸ™‚ I hope yours was great!

    • Well, it is hard to have regular working days. I had a 47 hour week, so I feel your pain, Amy! I am so glad I don’t work weekends, though. Enjoy today and tomorrow, dear. ❀

    • Oh, it was a fun and wacky visit with son and DIL with corned beef, cabbage, carrots and celery. Then, yes, shamrock cookies from Nana. Hendrix rolled from one side of the room to the other, which includes “scootching” now on his belly. πŸ™‚

  2. Reblogged this on By the Mighty Mumford and commented:
    IRISH JIGS ARE VERY GOOD EXERCISE…’THOUGH IT TAKES A WHILE TO LEARN THEM. i DO BELIEVE THAT NON-ALCOHOLIC iRISH CREAM IS AVAILABLE…BUT THE LAST TIME i BROUGHT “NEAR BEER” HOME, THE WIFE (A TOTAL TEE-TOTALLER) GAVE ME DIRTY LOOKS AND WASN’T HAPPY.

    • It isn’t necessary to drink alcohol and it is a rare occasion since son and wife don’t want grandies to think it is necessary. The Bailey’s (non-alcoholic) Irish creamer tastes delicious in coffee. Thanks for re-blogging this simple post! πŸ™‚

    • Our fine town of Delaware passed 75% for Developmental Disabilities levy, school levy passed and supporting our “bed tax” funding for our fairgrounds. We need to preserve our Triple Crown harness horse racing track. Of course I voted for the Primary. πŸ™‚
