Happy St. Patrick's Day and a Hiatus

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all of you out there. As they say, everone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day.

What does a pig have to do with St. Patrick's Day? I have no idea. But isn't he a charmer? Look closer and you'll see part of my collection of Irish Beleek china in the background. It's one of my favorite things to collect. *To answer a question, yes he is a cookie jar. I luuuuuuuurrrrre cookie jars. He's a reproduction of a vintage design.

We celebrated with corned beef and cabbage the other day at our local Irish pub. Yes, we're lucky to have one near us. Today we are getting ready for a road trip to Denver to visit our son. We're taking Maggie on her first long drive. Hopefully, the snow they are predicting will not be too intense as I haven't driven in snow in years!!!!

So, I won't be posting until I get home in a couple weeks. But don't worry, I can still check out your blogs from Denver.

See you when I get back!!!

Lovely post Miss Jean! That pig sort of scared me though. You have a safe trip and have fun. Remember to take that emergency,water,blankets...and yes chains! You just never know about our weather lately. Connor will be waiting for Maggie to return. Mumzie ;)
