The Wearin' of the Green - Create custom images

An Irish toast for all my blogging friends:

May the luck of the Irish
Lead to happiest heights
And the highway you travel
Be lined with green lights.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you too! Ireland will be here before you know it...and that's no Blarney!

Pam said...

Happy St. Pat's to you too. I have lots of irish in me, but I don't like unnaturally green food -- not even green eggs! :-) Go figure...

Joan said...

Lynn: Thanks for the holiday wishes. Now that we're going to Ireland, suddenly there seems to be Irish blood running through my veins.

Pam: No green eggs...I'm disappointed! ;-)

Patti said...

Joan: My maiden name is a "Mc" name and I'm about one-quarter Irish. I love "St. Patty's Day" because my name is Patti...I'm a simple soul.

Kid One took 3 years of Gaelic for an enrichment course...actually she is more Irish than I because her dad is mostly of the Irish persuasion.

Hope you had a good holiday.

Joan said...

Patti: I guess we need to change it to St. Patti's Day! And does Kid One ever get to use her Gaelic? I watched a travel video recently and I was mesmerized by the sound of Gaelic spoken by the locals.

Patti said...

Joan - Kid One just told me "it's such a confusing language" and words are not pronounced like you'd think they would be.

She doesn't use it, but it was a fun class to take.

And don't forget the bagpipes. In an Irish town, they are a tradition which I enjoy.

Joan said...

Sornie: I love both Scottish and Irish bagpipes and finally learned the difference...Scottish bagpipes are blown from the mouth while Irish bagpipes are "blown" using a bellows under the arm. Can you tell I'm studying all things Irish in preparation for our trip there in a few months? :-)
Thanks for stopping by.
