Happy St. Patrick's Day

My Dad loved St. Patrick's Day. Not because of corned beef and cabbage. That wasn't our food. Not because of green beer. Dad didn't drink except an occasional glass of wine on a special occasion or at a wedding. Dad loved St. Patrick's Day because it was his birthday. Dad always laughed saying he was more Irish than the Irish and would have been 95 years old today.

Happy Birthday, Dad!


  1. I'm sure he enjoyed having a birthday where so many folks celebrated the day with him.

  2. I wonder how old he was before he figured out they weren't celebrating HIS birthday!? I bet he and your mom are having a grand celebration! ♥♥♥
