Now, let’s revist last year’s St. Patrick’s Day – shall we?
St. Patrick’s Day 2008
Last year we went to the Poor Haas in Belleville – which was lame, so we only lasted about 30 minutes there. Then headed to Jerzey’s, our usual stompin’ grounds. 😉
My “odd socks” – that came all the way to me from Ireland. (Mother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law visited Ireland in 2006 (I think it was)).

A few fun pictures of friends.
Aren’t we cute?

Last year was the year that Peter, who usually would have been with us, was in Iraq. So, we made sure that he knew that we didn’t forget about him. We’re going to have to do something like this again this year, since he left us for Germany. 😦

Go out and have some green beer this year!!!

Or how about just some green alcoholic concoctions.

Pictures this year might look a lot like last year’s. We’re going to Jerzey’s again, with the same group of friends. 😀

    I am so not Irish and I don’t usually do much to celebrate St.Patrick’s day. This year I’m actually going to a parade on Saturday in Cottleville. I have to work on St.Patty’s, but I have a friend who is in the Dogtown parade again this year. Hope you have a great time!
