A Blessed St. Patrick's Day to You All

Today's forecast for St. Peters, MO: Sunny, high 80 degrees. It's a beautiful day for wearing of the green.

It's said that everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day. In honor of those of us who are Irish, Irish-American, and everyone else, happy St. Patrick's Day. And in memory of my late parents, James and Katherine Duly, my late daughter and late son-in-law, Julie and Mike O'Donnell, my late son Walter Erik Volkenannt, and all the members of the Duly, O'Donnell, Volkenannt, Wade, Noblitt, and McMullan families, wishing you a joyful and blessed St. Patrick's Day.

For my writing friends--Irish or otherwise--here's a Limerick I wrote awhile back, which actually has won me some money in writing competitions. Hope you enjoy, and feel free to add your own--but keep them somewhat clean--it is a saint's day, afterall.

Reverend Finn

A fist-pounding pastor named Finn
chastized all who fell into sin,
but after Finn met
the spripper, Yvette,
Finn's preaching forgiveness -- Amen!


  1. Love the limerick! Happy St Patty's Day to you, too!

  2. Thanks, Pat.
    It is a lovely day out today.

  3. There was a young lass named Cath
    Who soaked in a shamrock-y bath.
    She turned a bright green,
    and smelled amazingly clean,
    But c'mon. Did you really think she'd get lucky like that? :-)

    Happy St. Pat's, Donna! (Loved the limerick!)

  4. Hi Cathy,
    Love your Limerick--and your Irish surname.
