St Patrick's Day

My name says Ireland, the smile says Midwest and the green bagel for breakfast was all New York.

Happy belated St Patricks Day!

Its very strange being in NYC for St Pats on a workday. The young man in a green shirt and hand cuffs being led into the 19th precinct before 9am this morning was a hint that the "fun" had already begun. I was so focused all day long it was easy to forget that there was a huge parade 3 blocks from the office. Equally strange to emerge from the office at 630pm and see people walking around with painted faces, mardi gras beads and leprechaun hats. What did I miss??

That looks kind of scary.

When Irish eyes are smiling!!!
Yes we too missed out on a wee bit of St Pattys day by not having the traditional corned beef and cabbage for dinner.
We passed on the corned beef and had cabbage soup instead.
Is it corn or corned??? Too late in my day!
Love,Mom oxoxoxo

Irishman Capt Carnivore can confirm it is indeed 'corned' beef. Midtown on St. Paddy's day means two things, drunken fights and people puking.

Sounds like it was good you were at work and missed out on that party. Yuck!

Happy belated St. Pat's!
