feeling green


















Guinness Store sign (wikipedia)

Thought each of you would get a chuckle out of this sign which pretty much sums up today. 
Yes, my birthday is today, and I am not even one wee bit Irish, well, I do have a son with reddish hair, does that count?  It is St. Paddy's day, and "Everyone's Irish on March 17th."
Join me as I wear a little green, do a little jig, parade in a little parade and maybe even sip a little green.  Green tea sounds nice.
Thanks for all your bloggy birthday wishes!

Happy, Happy Birthday Patricia.
My wish didn't want to publish this morning- I think it's still there... Hope you have something really special planned for yourself today. We'll all be dancing a little jig to the beat of your birthday song.
