Irish for a day

I love everything that’s old, – old friends, old times, old manners, old books, old wine.
Oliver Goldsmith

A river dyed green (Chicago); pictures on the Internet of Leprechauns; Lucky Charms cereal -which I have not eaten in forty years (for good reason). Irish whiskey and four -leafed clovers everywhere.

Saint Patrick’s day on the 17th of March.

Do all dogs think themselves as Irish Wolfhounds today?

As for the Irish Wolfhound, a very old soul dog. The breed in Ireland were used to hunt wolves in Roman times around 300 CE. Nearly fifteen hundred years later, with no wolves left, they themselves nearly were extinct. Gentle giants.

Things to ponder.
