The Leprechauns are coming!!! our mom said so.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day To All!!!

From the Kerry Blue's...

Today we should all sit down and drink to the old sod....even if you're not Irish we still need to drink to the old sod <---- exactly what is the old sod. Hmmmmm well according to my old grampappy... it looks something like this-->

Kind of reminds me of a Kerry Green Terrier...
they are very rare.... notice
the blue eye (upper right hand side)
and the beard------------------------------->
not to mention the curly green legs,
with the brown feet <---must have been running around the peat bogs. ---------------------------------->
You can't
see the wagging tail because
his butt is in the clouds.
Sort of reminds me
of someone. Good old Butt in the Clouds..
one of the very first Irish Indians
that lived in the U.S of A.

Well folks, now you
know -- Ireland looks like an
emerald green, Kerry Green Terrier. Our long lost cousins
live right there in County Kerry.....so that's the history lesson for today. Let's get on with a toast to the old sod...

Here's a Buster Guinness toast to me ole granny.....

Here's to you and yours
And to mine and ours.
And if mine and ours
Ever come across to you and yours,
I hope you and yours will do
As much for mine and ours
As mine and ours have done
For you and yours!

Here, Here...!

So the gurls asked me out today to
partake of a wee pint of the
liquid gold.......
and, well it was a bit larger then a "wee pint"!

But I did rise to the
and then promptly
laid back down.

Another St. Patrick's Day
This was
memorable! I toasted to all my blog buddies, and all my Wilsons.....and to
the Irish Kerry Blue Terriers -- all of my relatives. In the meantime
Ms. Blue & Ms.Persephone were also celebrating --
of course Ms.Persephone will more than likely be celebrating from now until Saturday, the first day of spring.
Those pesky gurlies took my bench while I went looking for the leprechauns. Ms.B said she saw some way out in the yard. Past the "monster bamboo." Persephone is looking with me.

Foolish little dogs... HAH! fooled them, now I have the bench all to myself and they're out looking for leprechauns.

Just a bit O' Blarney to keep them busy for the afternoon, whilst I take my nap.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all...

signing off.

Wow.....you had a great time toasting the old sod didn't you? Great post and lovely pics! And yes, now you mention it, the Emerald Isle really does look like a green Kerry Blue....especially after a pint or two of the black stuff!
