Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I am so thrilled that today is FRIDAY and of all days, it is St. Patrick’s Day! Being Irish and named

after my great-grandmother Catherine McCarthy who came over to the United States from Ireland

during the potato famine I am so proud of my heritage. She worked as a seamstress in Chicago and

as a housemaid for the well-established Goldblatt family. I had the honor of meeting her family

descendants  in Ireland a few years ago who had a huge fun family tree guide. While Irish folks

like me can be feisty at times, we are a warm-generous fun-loving and drinking bunch! So…..

May the road rise to meet you

May the wind be always at your back

May the sunshine warm upon your face

The rains fall gently upon your fields

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His Hand.
