Sláinte!

Happy Belated St. Patrick's. 'Tis my favorite holiday of the year, but alas, I unexpectedly worked late and didn't celebrate as I usually like to (with Corned Beef, Cabbage, and Smithwick's, my favorite Irish beer). I did get in a little time on my fiddle and I'm winding down the night listening to the Chieftains, Beolach, and some of my other favorite traditional Celtic groups. These photos fit the occasion though they're from another island than Ireland.

Happy St. Patrick's

May you have food and raiment,
A soft pillow for your head,
May you be forty years in heaven
before the devil knows you're dead.

Slainte!

It was St. Patrick's Day? The only way I usually celebrate (or even realize it's that time of the year) is by getting a Shamrock Shake at MickeyD's. And since the nearest McDonalds is about 80 miles away from where I now live, it completely slipped my mind. Lol.
Love, love these pictures. Someday I want to go back to those beautiful islands...
