Happy St Patrick’s Day

Happy St Patrick’s Day! 

No sense in us going out to celebrate, due to my fluid restriction. In fact, we were out Saturday night at a surprise birthday party in Shendo/Chendo, and refrained from beer (although I did have a daquiri, which is a lot more phosphorous friendly than beer). 

I’m part Irish; my paternal grandfather was 100% Irish, and my paternal grandmother was part Scots-Irish from what I can tell of old family records (her grandfather had a letter from someone in Belfast that was “tending” the family “monuments” in the cemetary for my g-g-grandfather; the family name most likely in Belfast was  Henderson, although I haven’t yet found anything on them prior to them living in Ireland).  

My grandfather used to say that he was “the classiest Irishman who ever straddled a pisspot”.
