Saint Patrick's Day....Seattle

Photo from Seattle Times newspaper.

Seattle's Saint Patrick's Day Parade
Storm, an Irish water spaniel, is appropriately decked out for Saturday's St. Paddy's Day parade in downtown Seattle.

We had a fun St. Patick's Day and then homecooked dinner of corned beef/cabbage and Irish Soda Bread. Everyone at the table read an Irish Blessing.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
