Thank you very much for your comments.  The Kelleys have a bit of Irish blood.

Dolores and I were engaged to be married on St. Patrick's Day in 1965.  We we have additional reasons to celebrate the day.

I am 1/4 Irish but I have only been to Ireland once many years ago. But I always get a kick out this holiday and the green beer as professed as St Patrick's Day beer. I doubt that way back when that they had coloring in the beer.

It is sometimes good to revisit old blogs and reblogs. We might even find some good ideas for new posts.
