827. green with envy


my son is fifty percent irish.
on most days, i am zero percent, making today the day i am green with envy!

and ten hours from now ...
when asked if i am irish, i'll be answering, "i wish!", except it might be slurred a wee bit!

I celebrate my Irish heritage today also (1/4 from my paternal Grandfather). Funny how it's all about green beer and cabbage (not necessarily taken together - talk about a stink source!)

Did you see the White House has green water in the fountain for the occassion?

And BTW bob, I saw your blook on Amazon, you have a Library of Congress ISBN (both ISBN 10 & 13)and everything!!! You're a real PUBLISHED author, congrats.

Thanks Lightly!

And a toast to all:

"May the wind rise up to heat you, may the road be ever at your front."

(or whatever that expression is)!

Thanks Lightly. I have no Irish heritage either. Here's a toast to all of you beautiful people who hang out at the Pond...good champagne in a fancy glass.

Gotta love the Irish!!! These folks know how to live, love and laugh, and make the best Irish Coffee I ever had in my whole entire life (and that's a loooooong time). I've a wee bit of Irish on my side, and it all came pouring out when I visited the isle.

What more could you ask for? A chair by the pond, a glass of your favorite, and conversation with Bob.
