Where's ME lucky SHAMROCK?


 Leaping Leprechauns what's happened to poor old St Patrick's day? No beer, no bars, no parade, no shenanigans of any sort! This March 17th is about as fun as an income tax deadline. We're mostly staying home with no work, no food and worried about illness, I guess you couldn't get more traditionally Irish than that!

 Even the little people are practicing social distancing, staying away from toadstool rings, old oaks and fairy gatherings. I better stop there, I'm starting to sound like Dr Spo. Fortunately I already had my St Paddy's day a week ago. My neighbour decided to have an old fashion ceilidh.. sounds like "Kay-Lee", it's basically a kitchen party where people bring instruments and play Irish or Scottish tunes. They have tea or something stronger than tea, snacks and lots of jokes. I wore my latest in ceilidh evening wear. It just says Steve!



 As usual a lot of people said they were going to come but didn't show up, everyone is too busy these days. That's okay, I enjoyed myself, one young girl brought a violin, she wanted to connect with her heritage so we had her playing old Irish tunes. She is also a cousin of mine so I was able to tell her stories about her grandparents who I knew well. She told me an interesting story about meeting a boy in her high school, she joked with him about looking very Irish-ish, he mentioned that his grandparents came from my area. When they tried to find out if they were related, the young girl said that they sort of were but not by blood.. by marriage. She told me that her great uncle had married the boy's great aunt and when she told me the names of the great aunt and uncle.. I said that's my mom and dad. It's amazing how connections can suddenly appear.

 An interesting fact recently discovered is that scientists have learned, leprechauns actually poop gold nuggets, so yes... the pot of gold is actually the "potty" of gold.

What's Irish and lays out on the lawn. Patty O'Furniture.

 Fun Facts:
1) The Irish actually invented pizza!
2) Rap music was actually created by Irish people first but it really took off in the African-American community.
3) If a person of Irish ancestry tells you three things in a row, the first two are usually complete lies. Gotcha?

 Anyway whether you are Irish or not, on this day you can dance a little jig, have a little drink and hopefully bring a little smile to yourself and others, because we could all use a little spirit lifting right about now.

I've got and had a little Irish in me. But it's that 'angry inch' that hurts.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Jimmy, it's that joke, "is there a little Irish in you and if no, would you like a little Irish in you"? :D

anne marie in philly said...

LOVE the shirt!
no irish in this house; I'm a brit. spouse is german.
small world ain't it (your story above).

Jimmy said...

Stevie baby,....bring it on!

Deedles said...

Well, since we're sharing heritages, my paternal great grandfather was Irish. His wife was part Irish, French and *gasp* BLACK! My dna test says that I am 42 percent German (maternal). So, mutt. Gold nuggets are leprechaun poop? So, what are the marshmallow treats in a box of Lucky Charms? Leprechaun kidney stones? IHOP was serving green pancakes last time I was there. Has anyone noticed that food that is not naturally green, always looks moldy when dyed that particular color? Ick!
Chin up, Steven. Like leprechaun kidney stones, this to shall pass.

Happy Irish Heritage Day. Stop swinging that shillelagh around!

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

I’ve had some Irish in me. It lasted two years.
Those Irish facts you posted, though...?

XoXo

Dave R said...

I'm actually part Irish from my mother's side of the family. The Grangers. The other side of her family were the Dauberts. They thought they were German until someone traced their ancestry back and discover they were actually the d'Auberts. Interesting.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Anne Marie, yes small world! I have a teeny tiny bit of British and Scottish blood in me from what I've been told. The rest is Irish ancestry but who knows.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Jimmy, you naughty man, I rather like naughty men! :D

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Deedles, well there is the term "black Irish" I think it's people with raven hair.. not sure, I guess I will have to google it. Don't eat Lucky Charms! I heard lucky charms were leprechaun boogers, just saying.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Debra O'Naughty blogger, I never swinged me shillelagh in front of folks, well there was that nude party but I will deny everything!

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Sixpence, are you sure you wouldn't like a little Irish in you?

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Dave, part Irish is good enough for today! You could be me long lost cousin!

Ur-spo said...

Yes it is a rather lackluster holiday. There will be others.
I would actually pay for an evening with an Irishman if just to drool every time he speaks.

Mistress Maddie said...

I think that old fashion ceilid sounds so fun!!!! I love Irish and Scottish folk music.

And as far as I'm concerned I tried my best to uplift you all with my Patrick's post.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Dr Spo, well I bet you could get really cheap tickets to Ireland now!

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Maddie yes your post really had me up!
