Happy St. Patrick’s Day

May you always have walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire.

That’s one of my favorite Irish blessings. I have a bit o’ Irish in my blood and will celebrate accordingly today.

I’ve always wanted to attend this parade in Hot Springs, which is just a short drive from Little Rock. It’s become quite popular, bringing in celebrity (ok, not like George Clooney or Ryan Gosling types) grand marshals. They’ve had Mario Lopez (Saved by the Bell forever!), John Corbett (loved him in Northern Exposure and felt so sorry for him after Carrie broke his heart in Sex and the City), Pauley Shore (our favorite Son-in-Law) and John Ratzenberger (Cheers to everyone knowing his name). This year, Tim Matheson, known best for his role in Animal House, will take the high honor.

Not sure what to expect at the “world’s shortest parade.” It will be a little adventure. Happy day to you, and may the luck of the Irish find you every day.
