Happy Irish Day

Celebrate being Irish!  (not St. Patrick—he was a dick.)

Here’s Glen Hansard, one of my favorite Irish singers.

And a link to my Pinterest Board “The Old Country.”

I’m proud my ancestors journeyed from County Cork.  Researchers say an inordinate number of immigrants were bipolar—it took grandiose self-confidence and manic energy to leave home and jump into the Void.

Thanks, great-great grand-da.

Some day I’ll go back and tip a pint to ye.

    “dick”?? Hey!
    Anyway, Happy Irish to you, too. Here’s hoping both of us can celebrate next year in the old country.
