St. Patrick's Day

This is the day when the Irish, those who wish they were Irish, and those who are Irish for just one day wear green and imbibe prodigious amounts of hops- and grain-based medicines.  This has something to do with chasing snakes out of Ireland.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I am not a beer buff, but I had some very pleasant encounter with Mr. Jameson in the past...

We will celebrate St. Paddy's Day with a Flemenco Show. Not exactly traditional.

Ah, nothing better than Irish coffee! The wearing of the green!!


An Irish Prayer

May those who love us, love us;
and those who don't love us,
may God turn their hearts;
and if He doesn't turn their hearts,
may he turn their ankles
so we'll know them by their limping.

I think there's a Bailey's and coffee in my future to help stay awake for tonight's hoops game. Cheers!

Living in a college town, all the students here become Irish on this day! It has become quite a problem. I usually try to stay off the roads!

You've set up a perfect shot for this holiday!

And I so wish I was there for that right about now.
Although...I think my pantry may have the necessary ingredients for that concoction....
Happy St.Paddy's day to you!

Very funny and a delightful photo. Great job!

Re your comment: These "kids" are our grandchildren. We now have one great-grandchild and another due today or tomorrow! Yikes.

I have an Irish friend who always says it is a day for amateurs to drink! A toast to you Jack on St Paddy's Day!

Oh! And I thought we were celebrating the saint who brought Christianity to Ireland...

Happy green day sir! So... you drank all the Guinness and then all the water of life (okay so the bottle is half empty already) and finally gulped the Bailey's too and you're trying to have us believe you uploaded the photo? :-)

Farmchick said...

In my way of thinking....you need a lot of hops & grain products if you are going to chase snakes.

Randy said...

I could go for some Bailey's right now!
