St. Patrick's Day

No green beer here, nor corned beef, nor cabbage. Just a four leaf clover shirt, a rainbow fruit salad,

some Irish Soda Bread

potato stew (not pictured), and green crocs to give the day its due.

I supposedly have Irish heritage. My paternal grandfather's mother's maiden name was Calhoun, but I have no idea where she was born. I do have red hair, so I've always felt Irish. Isn't everyone Irish on St. Patrick's Day?
I don't own any green clothes. Every year on St. Patrick's Day I am so surprised I have nothing green to wear. It was very warm here today, so I peeked through my t-shirts (which are still put away in the "out of season" dresser) and pulled out one I thought could pass for green. My crazy-about-the-color-green daughter informed me very authoritatively "that's not green mom. It's Robin's Egg blue." Oh well, I tried.
