I am still nursing my broken ankle and the family is still grieving the loss of Molly. However, the leprechauns returned again this year. The little rats complained that we left only one beer and broke into our stash in the garage, leaving empty cans all over the kitchen. Their over-indulgence however led one to fall into Madie’s Leprechaun trap and another in Aidan’s trap. However, they fashioned little ropes and escaped. They left our traditional gold dollar coins on the tree outside for each kid. They also sent the kids on a riddle-laden hunt for a pot of chocolate coins with clues left around the house on three-leaf clovers. The kids have eaten the green donuts and drank the green milk left in their wake.
We are going to stay home today listening to Irish music and waiting to have our corned beef and cabbage tonight. In the meantime, we are still finding objects turned upside down by the mischievous little men.
Best wishes to the Turley clan in Ireland, particularly in the counties Armaugh and Down.
And to everyone . . . Erin go Bragh!!!
