Happy Paddies Day :o)

Saint Patrick's Day is widely celebrated in America by Irish and non-Irish alike. Many people, regardless of ethnic background, wear green-coloured clothing and items. Traditionally, those who are caught not wearing green are pinched, usually affectionately.

According to legend, St. Patrick used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pre-Christian Irish people.  I would personally rather have a four leaf clover.

The four-leaf clover is an uncommon variation of the common, three-leaved clover. According to tradition, such leaves bring good luck to their finders, especially if found accidentally. According to legend, each leaflet represents something: the first is for hope, the second is for faith, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck.

I hope you did not get pinched today, or if you did, hopefully it was on purpose :o)


  1. Well Ken not sure what the RV resort will think as I come out of the trailer, with green hair a green hat and all green clothing...The hair just does NOT look as good as the model in the picture but oh well.

    Sorry to hear about Beths unexpected trip. Hope things turned out all right.

    Blessings and hugs,

    ALBERTA Lori I Tucson until end of April

  2. I prefer four leaf clovers too. When I was a little girl I'd spend hours outside searching for them. I was always so-ooo excited when one appeared. Happy St. Paddy's Day.

  3. I always forget to wear green-color slips my mind being colorblind, usually resulting in a few pinches...

  4. Happy "St Paddy's Day" ~ I used to love looking for four leafed clovers (I still do :o) ~ I usually manage to find one :o) ~ Ally x

  5. Happy St Patricks to you two as well! I did wear my clover today just for some luck!

  6. 44 arrests for dui in Kansas City -- and that's a low number for Kansas City. I don't leave the house on St. Pats!

  7. Hi Ken,
    Nope ... no pinching around here!

  8. I'd rather have a pinch of Irish than an Irish pinch.


Tell Me What You Think, Don't Make me go Rogue on you :o)
