Paddy's 18th Birthday!!!!

Sunday, June 17, 2012




Since childhood, Paddy had heard the stories of an amazing family tradition where his father,

grandfather and great-grandfather had all been able to walk on water on their 18th birthday!



On that special day, they'd each crossed the lake to the pub on the

far side by walking on the water for their first legal drink.



So when Paddy's 18th birthday came around, he and his pal Mick, took

a boat out to the middle of the lake. Paddy stepped out of the boat...splash !!!

...and nearly drowned! Mick just barely managed to pull him to safety.



Furious and confused, Paddy, went to see his grandmother.



'Grandma,' he asked, "Tis me 18th birthday, so why can't I walk 'cross

the lake like me father, his father, and his father before him?"



Granny looked deeply into Paddy's, troubled brown eyes and said:


"Because ye father, ye grandfather and ye great-grandfather were all

born in January, when the lake is frozen, and ye were born in August,

ya idiot!" emoticon emoticon

Happy Sunday!!! Also, Happy Father's Day to all the Spark Dads!!!

    "Ya Idgit" that's a familiar Irish tinted phrase in my memory! "An it's a pure fool he is!"

Good story for Father's Day! Thanks for sharing!
