HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!!!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all of the leprechauns of the blog.

I am waiting for the four kids to wake. We left out corned beef and cabbage and Guinness beer for the leprechauns last night. They finished off the beer and appear to have helped themselves to a second beer during the night. Little rascals. They again left gold dollar coins in little bags for each of the kids hanging from a tree outside. They also hid potatoes with three-leaf clovers on them around the house. If you make a dish from the potatoes, it doubles the luck of the coins.

Since many people have sent me funny Irish jokes on this day, I will share one of my own favorites (of course with a legal theme):

One night on the small, dark Irish country roads an Englishman and an Irishman were driving recklessly and collided, demolishing both of their cars. Amazingly, the two men emerged from the wreck unscathed. Astonished by their luck, both agree to put aside their dislike of each other from that moment forward.

The Irishman at this point fetches a bottle of 12-year-old Jameson from his car and hands it to the Englishman who gratefully accepts it, removes the top and hefting the bottle in a toast, cries,

“May the English and the Irish live forever in peace and harmony!” Still shaky from the wreck, the Englishman takes several hearty swallows, draining a good half of the bottle before handing it back to Paddy.

“Eh, no thanks,” says the Irishman, “I think I’ll just wait for the Garda to get here.”

I will return to blogging once my leprechauns have found the potatoes and made it to school.

Until then . . .

Erin Go Bragh !!!

    Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
    From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
    The summer’s gone, and all the roses falling
    ‘Tis you, ’tis you must go and I must bide.

    But come ye back when summer’s in the meadow
    Or when the valley’s hushed and white with snow
    ‘Tis I’ll be here in sunshine or in shadow
    Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.

    But when ye come, and all the flowers are dying
    If I am dead, as dead I well may be
    You’ll come and find the place where I am lying
    And kneel and say an “Ave” there for me.

    And I shall hear, tho’ soft you tread above me
    And all my grave will warmer, sweeter be
    For ye shall bend and tell me that you love me
    And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me.

  4. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all the Turley Blawgers.

    A month ago, I found a story in the paper noting that a man in Scotland dug down 10 ft. and discovered copper wire. This, he declared, was proof that Scotland had a telecommunications network established 100 years ago.

    Two weeks later, a story appeared in the paper about a man in England digging down 20 ft. and discovering copper wire. This, he declared, was proof that England had a telecommunications network established 200 years ago.

    Just this morning, an article appeared in the paper proclaiming that an Irishman had dug down 30 ft. and discovered nothing. This, he declared, was proof that Ireland hand gone wireless over 300 years ago.

  5. Swartzmore mom,

    What a lot of people do not realize that it was the Irish that were in control of the South during the Civil War, but for that fact they might have won….

  6. Happy St Patrick’s Day. It is sure different in Texas than it was in St. Paul and Chicago. I have never seen a four leaf clover here and the Irish are mainly protestant.

  7. Well Mr. Patrick Turley, the only day that your name will not appear on this site is when you are not here. Someone else may use or even have the same name but you are the only one that can use your name.

  8. How sweet that on this day I can find both my first and last names on your blog site. Green up.

  9. And the Britain-Romans lived forever in Harmony….

  10. To my cyber-friends here at the Prof’s salon, the best blog anywhere:

    May those who love us love us.
    And those that don’t love us,
    May God turn their hearts.
    And if He doesn’t turn their hearts,
    May he turn their ankles,
    So we’ll know them by their limping.

    ‘Sláinte chuig na fir, agus go mairfidh na mná go deo.
    Beannachtam na Feile Padraig!’

    Health to the men, and may the women live forever!
    Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
