St. Patrick's Day
Today is St. Patrick's Day. My grandfather was Irish, in fact his parent's came from Northern Ireland back in the 1840's. Since then my relatives all married Deutchman, so I am only 1/4 Irish and my grandchildren are only 1/32 Irish. But I always send them a St. Patrick's Day card. Even though my Mom was 100% German she always dressed us in green for the holiday but wouldn't be caught dead wearing it herself.
