Happy St. Patrick's Day Everyone!
While I am not technically Irish, I'm more of an American hybrid or as I call myself, a mutt. You know that mutts make the best pets, right? Not that I'm a pet but...I'm not sure where I'm going with this, anyway.
JR could be considered of Irish ancestry.
3 of his grandparents came over from Ireland between 1870 and 1910. 1 by way of Canada but we don't hold that against him. JR still has family up north. Then again, he still has family in Ireland. He and his brothers stay in contact with his cousin Terry in County Meath. Computers help, I remember sending birthday and Christmas cards to their great uncle back in the 80s and 90s. My mother-in-law use to send him cards and I just picked up that mantel. When he passed away we stayed in contact with his son/grandson (I can't remember the connection) Terry. My brothers-in-law have even been over there to visit. JR and I hope to get over there.
While, the gang around here is just a tad Irish we don't really do much for St. Patrick's Day. I'll be persuaded to make corned beef and cabbage. The boys will drink a Guinness or two but that is about it. We don't go out to brave the crowds. If you do, have a great time.
