St Patricks Day At Old Ranch/Phoenix Club

Visiting with our friends

Old Ranch On St Patricks Day; Then We Headed For The Phoenix Club

It was so much fun we did it again on St Patricks day but Jan and Brian had departed for Great Britain on Tuesday and we will miss them. Herb and Dave joined the group and Vince had to "work"... Just us having a load of fun!

Plenty to eat

The cooks were checking everything over

About 100 yards of food ready to go

Traditional Irish breads include soda bread , wheaten bread , soda farls, and blaa , a doughy white bread roll particular to Waterford .

James was first to hit the buffet line

Ted Conlin joins us with an excellent story

It seems Paddy was reading the newspaper and he saw a story where he had died. Being puzzled, he turned on the telly and again a story appears about his death. Being a little confused he calls his friend Shamus. He relates his concern to Shamus and Shamus said he had heard the same thing!

Then Shamus asked "Where you calling from Paddy>"

Linda takes her life in her hand....

We got the cooks tour... Time to eat

A desert in each hand????

Meanwhile at home Ruby is throwing a party

Careful... Another story is boiling

The Vicky-Cam is at work

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.
~Irish Blessing

Thanks to close up lenses we see what the green dots are the table were

James is lurking somewhere nearby


Not a single calorie to be found here... They are all in large groups

Ruby is watching you

James was dragged away from this table kicking and screaming

An Irishman is never drunk as long as he can hold onto one blade of grass to keep from falling off the earth.  ~Irish Saying

Linda and James stretching before heading back to the dessert table

The green matches

Looking good

Dave apparently does not understand talk form the hood

For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way -
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.
~Author Unknown

Their back....

Herb is not frightened of calories

Neither is Paul

Nancy thought no one was watching... Ah ha

Someone was out in the sun today

Is is hoping that Paul will continue to behave

They match

A smile... This is good

To The Phoenix Club

We departed about seven for the Phoenix Club and got there at 9:29

Our table was ready

"The Boy" was working hard

Doing is leg stretching exercises before dancing

The cameraman is in trouble... again
