Top of the Mornin' to You!


Yes, it is St. Patrick's Day. And at our house, that means a trick or two from a little green guy (like the milk has turned green, or the water in the toilet is green, or,..........) As well, it means that A. builds a "leprechaun trap"-an assortment of boxes and tape and some strategic planning. You see, leprechauns love shiny things, and "Lucky Charms" cereal (the perfect bait), and natural objects (like twigs and pretty stones). If you leave a direction for him (such as "No leprechauns allowed" or "Do not enter") he will do the exact opposite. And if he doesn't get caught, he leaves a few trinkets, since he appreciates a good try.
Enjoy your green day, whether you can claim Irish heritage or not!

This leprechaun celebrated with a pint of Ben & Jerry's Dublin Mudslide ice cream. No hangover, just a little guilt!

SO did you catch him?

(I tinks Beawrs would catches him. So braves Beawrs. Loves Abby.)
