Happy St. Patrick’s Day to my Irish friends & to the rest of you who wish you were Irish
There’s a saying that goes “people are either Italian or wish they were.” The same goes for Irish. Maybe it’s the charming personality, the wonderful way with words, or the daily pints. Anyway, I’m glad I’m half Italian, but I wouldn’t mind being Irish as well. Talk about an explosive combination!
That reminds me of the shirt I made years ago just to wear on St. Paddy’s day every year:
REALLY GERMAN & ITALIAN BUT I LOVE
I really do love the Irish — men & women, young & old. Fun, witty, creative. They are simply the best storytellers (Walt Disney was Irish) & toast masters in the world. AmperArt #143 Live Long & Never Want, is the perfect Irish toast for you, my ampersand friend:
May you live as long as you want
never want as long as you live.
Here’s another one that I like, meaningful & clever:
Here’s to a long life & a merry one.
A quick death & an easy one.
A pretty girl & an honest one.
A cold pint & another one!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day
