To our Irish friends...

As a fitting tribute to our Irish friends on this Saint Patrick's Day, a few of my favorite Irish Blessings.

May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you wherever you go.

May the grass grow long on the road to hell for want of use.

May your day be filled with blessings
Like the sun that lights the sky,
And may you always have the courage
To spread your wings and fly!

Here's to a long life and a merry one;
A quick death and an easy one;
A pretty girl and an honest one;
A cold beer -- and another one!

May you live forever
And may the last words you hear be mine!

May you be buried in a casket made from the wood of a 100 year old oak...
That I shall plant tomorrow.

May you live to be a hundred
And may I live to sing at your wake!

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

Our friends the Irish are indeed a colorful lot, and today is a special day to honor Saint Paddy and Irishmen everywhere. Enjoy and have a fun and safe Saint Patrick's Day.

Oh and BTW, best of luck to all the anglers on Flathead Lake this fine day who are competing in the "Mac Days" fishing tournament. May you all hook that Mackinaw trout that is tagged with a $35,000 prize!
