There Be Leprechauns!



The younger of me two darlin' daughters hopped off the Notre Dame Club of St. Louis float to strike a pose for the Fightin' Irish during the St. Patty's Day parade in St. Louis last Saturday. (The parade was started 40 years ago by a Notre Dame grad)



Leprechauns, castles, good luck and laughter
Lullabies, dreams, and love ever after.
Poems and songs with pipes and drums
A thousand welcomes when anyone comes.

That's the Irish for you!

A Happy St. Patrick's Day to ye, one and all!

How nice! I've been to the St. Louis area several times, but never actually visited the city or Notre Dame (always passing through to somewhere else!-no time...)

Great picture with the Arch too!

She strikes an imposing figure. Happy St Paddy's day...maybe you can die your sushi rice green. ;D

That's a great pic with your daughter, the street, the flag, and the arch all in the sunshine.

Cead mi faille!!!!!!

(Oops...I just realized I'm not wearing anything green...and no Guinness in my pantry!!!!)

I definitely see the resemblance!

IceGlacial - likewise to you and your sis.

Ladybug - I've never been to St Louis either, but visited ND twice. The pic is interesting isn't it? That rotunda is the city courthouse.

Snabby - ew. green rice. I'll settle for a green salad.

Olivia - thanks. Looks like spring has sprung there. Love your necklace by the way.

HappySurfer - chip off the old block. Actually, my daughters look like both of their parents, this one a bit more like me, her sister a bit more like her mom. HSPDay to you too.

Moody - 100,000 welcomes to you.
No green? 100,000 pinches. (but I won't do the pinching).

You can't see it in the picture, but her eyes are almost identical to mine - hazel green.

Oh thanks - a gift from a New Zealand friend, given the day before I flew out from London. It's a traditional maori symbol in bone and abalone (unusual addition). It's a fish hook which means good luck for those who travel over water.

Olivia - cool. the abalone is a nice touch. Maori designs are some of the most interesting in the Pacific.
