Happy St. Patrick"s Day Everyone. It is one of my favorite holidays always celebrated by my mother. She was so happy on this day. She collected Irish figurines and it was a challenge finding the prettiest one. She had a beautiful music box that played The Rose of Tralee" which I now have. She was proud of where she came from and had a lot of stores.
She came to the USA when she was 21 and I went to Ireland when I was 21. It was the greatest vacation and all I wanted to do was spend time with my Grandpa who I wrote letters to from the time I could print. My Uncle Patty had built a modern house next to Grandpa's so that is where I stayed. He had four kids so I got to know my cousins as well as my other two uncles John and Mossie.
Just wanted to share my joy on CM...it is a special day for memories.
