Please don't pinch the Julie.
My mom's 3rd paternal great grandfather, Benjamin, was born in Ireland in 1788 and passed away in Mason, Illinois in 1845. So, as far as my parents' names are concerned...I'm maternally Irish and paternally Swedish. (and I just realized that I'm talking to you all...out loud...writing this post using a fine brogue...go figure that.)
So, do I have to wear green today?
I wish you all a lovely Saint Patrick's Day, but I think you might be wondering..."What exactly does this post have to do with Outdoor Wednesday."
Well, I'll tell ya.
It's still looking mighty brown around these parts...so, I thought I'd share a little green from year's past with you...in honor of what's soon to come.
(Now, I just visualized the hunky, wavy-haired guy in the lush glade...wearing the cable knit sweater with a big smile...and a bar of soap. Didn't you???)
A sweet surprise...
and a wee bit of gold.
Happy Saint Patrick's Day, everyone...and Happy 62nd Outdoor Wednesday!
