Happy Birthday to my little buddy..and Happy St. Patty's day to the rest of you!

I can't help but imagine what his birthdays will be like when he is of drinking age (or close to it for that matter). The whole world will be celebrating in his honor.

Happy St Patty's Day!

I can call her Erin, but it's Ms. Go Bragh to you.

It's also my daughter's birthday so I can tell you how his birthdays will be when he is of drinking age but I will not since I don't want you to have years of worry !

let me just leave these here:

Paddy was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an important meeting and couldn't find a parking place. Looking up to heaven he said, 'Lord take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of me life and give up me Irish Whiskey!'

Miraculously, a parking place appeared.

Paddy looked up again and said, 'Never mind, I found one.'



Father Murphy walks into a pub in Donegal, and asks the first man he meets, 'Do you want to go to heaven?'

The man said, 'I do, Father.'

The priest said, 'Then stand over there against the wall.'

Then the priest asked the second man, 'Do you want to go to heaven?'

'Certainly, Father,' the man replied.

'Then stand over there against the wall,' said the priest.

Then Father Murphy walked up to O'Toole and asked, 'Do you want to go to heaven?'

O'Toole said, 'No, I don't Father.'

The priest said, 'I don't believe this. You mean to tell me that when you die you don't want to go to heaven?'

O'Toole said, 'Oh, when I die , yes. I thought you were getting a group together to go right now.'

Nice, a cunning plan that worked

"Kiss Me, I'm a Geordie" never seemed to work for me

Well Happy Birthday to the wee one and the grown up wee one!

I forgot to wear green today (didn't get pinched) and I didn't mention being Irish (so no kiss)..... Maybe next year...

So what exactly is a Geordie and how do you pronounce it?



Happy birthday, Little Fed and "Little" Moemg!

I didn't know either, so I googled and found this.

I wore green today. Never had time to think about things like that before ER.

Gotcha - it would be "Geordie as a Second Language".

Happy St Patty's Day!
My father's birthday was St. Patty's Day. For free beer all that was needed was his driver's license.
