It’s Finally St. Patrick’s Day At Our House!

Man in a hot air balloon is lost over Iowa. He looks down and sees a farmer in the fields and shouts to him, where am I? The farmer looks back up and shouts back. You’re in a basket you dumb shit!

Paul hit the road walking and has completed 133 miles this year so far this year   Not too bad for an ol’ fart!

The Minion speaks the truth!

We had breakfast finishing off all the remaining left-overs in the frig. Yeah, we can go out to eat again!

Perhaps Chinese this week?  Oops, we forgot… Paul’s old saying always haunts us: “I do not sew with a fork, and I see no reason why I should eat with knitting needles.”  However, it is a well known fact that if you eat anything with chopsticks, there are no calories to be had!  We find ourselves in a dilemma which is like a DeSoto, only different!

Upon returning to our little home from the walk, Sue O’Liles had the fixins out for a St. Patrick’s Day meal!  We had 10 pounds of corned beef and fresh cabbage from our garden, just picked this morning!

The corned beef was really really fresh!!!

We had two pots of corned beef going, a mix of potatoes from the market and from our garden plus the cabbage.  It was a veritable steam bath of delightful smells and the expectations were running rampant!  We get to be Irish in a couple of hours!

We sat down to what some late afternoon TV before going to the kitchen to check on dinner.  Finally at 7:00 PM we could not wait, out came the meal!  Sue doesn’t eat meat so poor ol’ Paul was FORCED to munch on the corned beef and it was FANTASTIC.

We talked about work a little remembering what it was like eleven years ago. Sue asked the question: “Who was the only person who got his work done by Friday?”  Paul, without batting an eye, responded “Robinson Crusoe”.

We watched TV and finally crashed about 11:30 PM.

About Paul
