Happy St. Patrick's Day to all
from Northern California!
I spent the day photographing some 6 year olds at my daughter's school as they sought to find their local leprechaun named "Winky". It is quite the tradition at the school for Kindergarten. The first graders set leprechaun traps in hopes of catching Winky. Again, another fun experience in honor of the day.
Below is Winky. He turns to stone when he has been found. I'm not sure how much that fits in with Irish tradition but it is fun for the kids. They all wore green today.
In the grand tradition of Ireland, or at least according to the support beam at the Guinness Brewery in Dublin......
A special greeting to my Flanagan and Hickey Relatives in Ireland who sent messages today.
Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Duit
Go n-éirí an bóthar leat.
Go raibh cóir na gaoithe i gcónaí leat.
Go dtaitní an ghrian go bog bláth ar do chlár éadain,
go dtite an bháisteach go bog mín ar do ghoirt.
Agus go gcasfar le chéile sinn arís,
go gcoinní Dia i mbois a láimhe thú.
I hope that everyone has a great day!
