Happy St. Patrick's Day

I'll be having a few Guinness Stouts today to commemorate St. Patrick's Day... a day when Irish celebrate being Irish, and everyone else wishes they were Irish too.
There is something about the Irish way of thinking, the way they can turn a phrase, their habit of answering a question with another question, the vibrancy of their music, their dark and long standing grudges, their stories that go on and on without a clear ending....
Not sure where the phrase..."Luck of the Irish" comes from.  There is a lot of unlucky shit in the history of the Irish.   But the ability of these people to overcome adversity and achieve success has been a documented circumstance time after time.   Some people might term this as Luck.
The Irish have a reputation for fist fighting.   This photo of my grandson, Ethan Nestor, has nothing to do with anything... but I thought I'd insert it into this post anyway.
Happy St. Patrick's Day.
