Sure and there was a lot going on
at the 
being held downtown.

'Twas a fine day for the
folks that were Irish
and those that claimed 
to be Irish.

Everyone knows that
there is magic surrounding
the Irish.

Flying cars are normal
as are bottles that spray a
into the air.

Sure and the lads had a 
whale of a time with the
canny Irish lasses 
that waved
checkered flags for those
that wanted to race for
the Guinness beer.

Everyone had a great day
except for poor Dickie O'Connor.
He was the one that picked the
short straw and had to
strip naked and act as a
human ice holder.
Thanks be to God,
he had tattooed some
designs on to his upper thighs
years earlier.
People thought he was crazy
when he got tattooed like that-
but he smiled to himself
as he thought---
Who's crazy now?  Huh? Huh?
Still and all- that ice was cold
sitting in his lap that way.

Poor Dickie!
He said he is never attending another
in his life.


I got home late yesterday and have
the grandgirls today.
Will share some pictures this coming week
and try to catch up with everyone.

Diana, You are so darn funny. I bet Dickie is wearing a thermal thong. Here's my Irish joke : Did you hear about Shawn O'Reilly that worked at the brewery? He fell into a vat of brew and drowned. The towns folks kept asking, "Did he not know how to swim??" The foreman said , "Swim me arse, he got out three times to take a pee." :):) Only the Irish, aye? Blessings, xoxo, Susie

I think the funniest part of this is that Dickie's drinking Mountain Dew. LOL Seriously? He's absolutely sober? ROFL. I can't stop giggling so I have to go now. LOL

You owe me a new laptop. Methinks mine is messed up after having spewed coffee all over it! You crack me up!

I like to point out (not pinch) the people who didn't wear green. Shame on their households

Simple and serene living Laura Walker said...

Sounds like a hilarious day. I stayed home and stuck a green leaf in my hair. xo Laura

I would think the Dew would be happy for some extra advertising, silly or not! Have a fun time with your grandkids! We are having our corned beef and cabbage and Irish soda bread on Sunday...a little late. My husband is cooking so I have no control!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Not a Dew fan, but cute ad! My husband comes from Scots-Irish, so I guess he can claim an Irish ancestor or two. Never found any on my side of the tree, I'm basic English and some Wales. Have a super weekend!

Kay G. said...

Let's see, my grandmother was a FITZGERALD, so I must be Irish too! These good looks must have come from somewhere! LOL! xx
P.S. Mountain Dew was really named after MOONSHINE, a subject I really need to write about since my father's Dad was an EXPERT! (Honestly, he was!)

Cranberry Morning said...

You are just hilarious! Love these posts, Diana. And of course always love the pics of those darling grands. I don't think I have a drop of Irish blood in my veins unless my Swedish and Danish ancestors didn't tell us the whole story. Blessings on you, friend. Have a wonderful weekend. xo

Donna said...

Funny story on the ad...yikes, he looks cold. Hope your St Pat's Day was fabulous. Hmm, I didn't even wear anything green. English and Dutch blood runs in my veins...guess I could pretend like everyone else...ha! Have a good weekend. xoxo

Missy George said...

Always so fun of fun and whimsy. I hope your St. Patrick's day was wonderful. We did enjoy the traditional food. I am still waiting on my ancestral DNA results to see what I am...LOL
