Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Was that the sound of an Irish jig we just heard?

Or, was it the sound of the wonderful tree lady dancing through our house as she weaved her magic for St. Patrick’s Day?

Smart pot o’ gold money would be on the latter and, not surprisingly, the results were spectacular. So, of course, we had to share them with the class.

Sure’n this would be tree #1.

Now, you really didn’t think there would only be one tree, did you?

Sure’n this would be tree #2. If your wondering, “Failte” means welcome.

And, of course, you didn’t expect the wonderful tree lady to stop weaving her magic after just 2 trees.

Perfect for coffee at the top ‘o the morning, this would be tree #3.

But wait, there’s more!

The tea set, the tiny leprechaun, the boy and girl bells and the tea pot were all gifts from some of our WGN radio listeners.

And, if you look a little closer …

The little tea set was brought back from Ireland by a listener. The little leprechaun on the pot of gold is actually a porcelain box with tiny shamrocks inside.

And is that an old friend we see at the bottom of one of the trees?

You may recognize our little friend at the bottom of the tree from his days working for the Illinois lottery.

And a few more little people showed up to join in the celebration.

Just a gathering of the clan.

And, because just “a few more” is never enough …

The little guy on the left was made by a listener and the one on the right began his life over 50 years ago.

We think it’s entirely probable that Steve’s Mom, a true Irish lass, who was born on St. Patrick’s Day, is looking down from her heavenly home and smiling at the results of the wonderful tree lady’s handiwork.

Happy Heavenly Birthday, Mary Elizabeth!

From our clan to your clan, Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Stay safe,

Steve & Johnnie
