Sure and Begorra! It's Saint Patrick's Day!
Saint Patrick's Day and I am missing Jeff. He is my favorite companion on this day and we have celebrated long and well now and again over the years. His sainted mother, The Fair Brigid who was born in Ireland, rolled her eyes at our antics with a twinkle in her eyes and she and Big Alex joined often joined us for a wee jar when they were younger.
That said, I was going to don my green and join my fellow sons and daughters of Hibernia for the Saint Patrick's Day Stroll and corned beef and cabbage and a green beer afterward but with my dental problems, I'll just stay h0me. Sigh.
It isn't St. Patrick's Day without my favorite Irish group: Tommy Makem and the Clancy Brothers so here's one my favorite songs from them. (Jeff and I were known to sing it loud and off key after a couple wee jars in our misspent youth.) Tommy and Liam -- God be good to them -- are no longer with us but I'm glad YouTube keeps their spirit and gifts alive.
Here's a song that features Tommy and I've always enjoyed.
Happy St. Patrick's Day and Happy Blogging!!!!!!
