Happy St. Patrick's Day

Our favorite verse...
May those that love us, love us;
And for those that don't love us,
may God turn their hearts;
And if he can't turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles;
So we may know them by their limping.
an Irish toast

We will not be eating our celebratory St. Patrick's Day meal until tomorrow night,
when we'll dine on corned beef and cabbage and Irish Soda Bread
while we're watching this...
The Quiet Man
is a story about a man, Sean Thornton (living in Pittsburgh),
who retires to Ireland to reclaim his family's farm in Innisfree.
He meets and falls in love with spinster Mary Kate Danaher and then the sparks begin to fly!
It's a wonderful, funny story made even more fun by watching it with a man who does
a Barry Fitzgerald (who is also in the movie) impersonation almost perfectly.

I'd like to share some of my favorite images of the day...

Have a happy day Joyce! We'll be having our corned beef and cabbage tonight and then enjoying corned beef sandwiches on Thursday. The Quiet Man is such a great movie ~ I was just thinking about it earlier today.

Wayne works so I don't have to have corned beef and cabbage wafting thru my home!!!! Ish! As my mother would say! :) Please tell Barb I got her card! Thank her for me please! :) :)

I laughed out loud at the toast, Joyce! I'd never heard it before! Does this mean that all those who walk with a limp are suspect?? ;)

Your site is always a lovely place to visit and I want others to be aware of it. Thus I have passed along the Sunshine Award to you. You need not do anything. I'm just hoping to steer more people to your lovely world.

Who doesn't love 'The Quiet Man'? Great choice!
It was VERY late last night when I finally finished that post (contrary to the 9:26 PM it shows...have you ever noticed that it shows the time you START making the new post?) Anyway, since then I went and found your true Valentine, scanned it, and have it
posted. It says "Love You Tons" instead of the other...(too lazy and tired last night). Just didn't want you to come back over and think you were developing Alzheimer's. :-D
**No limpers over here, thank goodness. : )
Hope your St. Patty's Day was a good one!

Hee-hee! I had to run back over today to share a comment PJ left on my site this morning:

"Joyce is groovy, isn't she? I adore her."

Have a "groovy kind of day", Joyce! :-D
