emoticon Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on my St Patrick's blogs and Irish Blessings Blogs! emoticon

I had a great time digging out some of them and always have a stash of Maxine since she's my favorite (and I'm a lot like her!) Found so many great Irish Blessings I will post them for a few more days. Hope you got in a little Irish jig and some corned beef and cabbage!
