From The Clan McGavin

S: Since we're Irish (by way of Daddykitty's heritage), we start celebrating when the first cornbeef and cabbage gets served up! (Usually at happy hour today - even though we can't go to pubs!)

K: We will be celebrating through Saturday, and maybe even into Sunday - Mommakitty (who is actually Scottish) says it depends on how good da green liquids are . . . and of course, NIP is green, so we will be indulging as well!

S: Here is Kimo sporting a classic Irish Alpine Hat, a sophisticated look for St. Patrick's Day.

K: And here's Sabi, wearing a classic American St. Patrick's Day "Let's Party" hat.

S: Hey - it's green isn't it?!

K: Anyhoo . . . we thought we'd show you some spring photos from our neighborhood that may remind some folks of Ireland - some lovely rolling green hills.

Click on da photo to see a great slide show
of Daddykitty's photos of this beautiful park.
We hope to stroll here someday.

K: A h-uile latha sona dhut, gun latha idir dona dhut!
(Celtic for: Good to you every day, without an evil day to you!)

S: Happy St. Patrick's Day - and remember . . .
. . . Cha shoirbh triubhas a chur air cat.
(Celtic for: It's not easy to put trousers on a cat.)

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
Irish Blessing


P.S. - We do not know da horse-lady in da slide show.

You both look very cute, all decked out for St. Patrick's Day! :) Those are great hats. We don't really be celebrating St. Patrick's Day here, since my mom's birthday is on Monday, so we'll be celebrating that.

Top of the morning to you! I'm Irish too, as you know. And funny, its cause Dad is 100% Irish (Cork), and Mom is Scottish (highlands), just like you!

And Mom and Dad always say how much the hills around here remind them of Ireland this time of year. In fact, when they drive to work, they pass sheep in the fields!

Fantastic hats! Slainte!

I really like your hats. I don't think that I am Irish at all, but I like the color green.

I think that Irish proverb is very true about putting trousers on a cat.
