Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

You might surmise, by my logo that I am an Irish-American, and DAMN proud of it.

Today is the first St. Paddy’s that I have had to work, usually for the past SEVERAL years I have the day off.

Usually my wife and I spend the day at the “real” parade in old Dogtown (Dogtown is St.Louis’ oldest Irish ghetto,  getting it’s name from the dogs that would chase horses and carriages down the street in the old days). Spending the day stuck in my office, was quite the downer..BUT lemons = lemonade! I spent the morning blasting bagpipes and the Dropkick Murphys – annoying the shit out of my co-workers.

There’s always next year – so have a pint of beer and a glass of whiskey for me!
