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.

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...

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
