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