1. My good friend Tony has been getting our group together on St. Patrick’s Day for the last few years. There is a local restaurant and pub called the Capital Ale House that we have adopted for this festive day. Sunday was no exception and we gathered a crew of fifteen. I always wear my kilt, my mother was Scots-Irish, and it’s interesting the looks I receive. This year Dee thought it would be a good idea to bring my “portable” kilt. As each of the men arrived she made them put on the kilt and took pictures. Here is Tony, Lou, Jack and me.
Has no one condemned you?”
She replied, “No one, sir.”
Then Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you.
Go, and from now on do not sin any more.”
A Prayer In Spring
“Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers today;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.
Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.
And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.
For this is love and nothing else is love,
To which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends he will,
But which it only needs that we fulfill.”
But I like Oreos.
Oreo's the best because
It's the very best cookie ever was.
Girls are nice but oh what icing comes with Oreos.”
