In the Spirit of Saint Patrick's Day

I love St Patty's Day! I take pride in celebrating my 1/8 bit of Irish heritage. :)

In the spirit of Saint Patrick's Day, here's a blessing for you -

May your pockets be heavy-
Your heart be light
And may good luck pursue you
Each morning and night

And some humor for ya-

Two Irishmen, Patrick Murphy and Shawn O'Brian grew up together and were lifelong friends. But alas, Patrick developed cancer, and was dying. While on his deathbed, Patrick called to his buddy, Shawn, "O'Brian, come 'ere. I 'ave a request for ye." Shawn walked to his friend's bedside and kneels.

"Shawny ole boy, we've been friends all our lives, and now I'm leaving 'ere. I 'ave one last request fir ye to do."

O'Brian burst into tears, "Anything Patrick, anything ye wish. It's done."

"Well, under me bed is a box containing a bottle of the finest whiskey in all of Ireland.  Bottled the year I was born it was. After I die, and they plant me in the ground, I want you to pour that fine whiskey over me grave so it might soak into me bones and I'll be able to enjoy it for all eternity."

O'Brian was overcome by the beauty and in the true Irish spirit of his friend's request, he asked, "Aye, tis a fine thing you ask of me, and I will pour the whiskey. But, might I strain it through me kidneys first?"

Have a fantastic Saint Patrick's Day!

Great post, Megan.  I, too, am of Irish decent (as well as a couple of other "decents").  The joke made me laugh out loud!  Happy St. Patrick's Day!
