St. Patty's

I could have gone to Dublin
to celebrate St. Patty's day
but Chambersburg, PA is much closer,
and just as Irish.

12 of my cousins,
offspring of Grandparents born
in County Cork, Ireland,
and their families
gathered to celebrate.

And celebrate we did.

Best line I heard all weekend
was when my 96 yr old Aunt Helen was asked
if she would like a coffee or tea.
In an exasperated voice she said,
"No.....I want a Jameson!"
