Happy St. Patrick's Day

I hope you had a Happy St. Patrick's Day.  In non-pandemic times we always 
have a family party -- lots of green.  Green loot bags, candy wrapped in green,
a great meal with something green.  This year Steven and I were on our own
with the animals.  And here's the funny thing.  Even though this photo was 
taken seven years ago, this is what Steven wore, minus the hat and bow tie,
and Sally wore the same hat. Briefly.

We decorated the kitchen, and the Christmas trees still on the porches for
St. Patrick's Day, had a toast with green champagne, and a great dinner.
One of my friends called us celebrants -- well we do like to have special
times.  Neither of us is Irish -- but hey!  On my mother's side a few
generations back there were French Huguenots who left France for Ireland,
and then Ireland for Canada. 

Have a celebrating whatever you can day.
