Happy St. Patricks Day!

I have nary an Irish bone in my body. Hubby is 3/4 Irish. They were Kelly and Chambers on his mother's side of the family. His father was half Irish.

Peculiar, my first husband was of Irish descent, as well, and both were accountants!

I'm not Irish, so say my adoption papers. However, we did have green spaghetti for dinner last night. Most of our snow is gone, I should take another photo!



We have the kids, and the days have been full.
Buster came in at 5 a.m. and there was a wee wake-up by Iz.



Kay posed this problem: making as many words as possible from these letters. That's all. 

shamrocks

  1. sham
  2. ham
  3. rocks
  4. hock
  5. sock
  6. shock
  7. mass
  8. cask
  9. mark
  10. hark
  11. croak
  12. harm
  13. charm

Ahhhh.... I see my cousin has been here. Too funny! We have no Irish in our own blood although my sister-in-law and (sort of) daughter in law are Irish. However, we had corned beef and cabbage last night just for the fun of it. Darn! We forgot the Guinness though.
