Happy Saint Paddy's Day

An American lawyer asked, "Paddy, why is it that whenever you ask an Irishman a question, he answers with another question? "Who told you that?" asked Paddy.

Scissors often accuses me of answering a question with a question which is also a Jewish trait. This furthers my assertion that the Irish are one of the Lost Tribes of Israel.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day! May the luck of the Irish be with us all.

Well I am a little late...however, I can wish you a Happy St. Patric's Evening.
OMG Scarlet Fever...I am with you I thought it had gone out with the flappers...The Scissor family is very dramatic when it comes to illnesses...Take care all of you and no more exotic deceases please.

Happy belated Saint Paddy's Day to you too! That was pretty fun, the thing about the Irish being the lost tribe...

Time after time I hear about a kindergargtener has Scarlet Fever here but no epidemic. They usually feel special and are very proud. Children... :-)

My hubby answers questions with questions, but he's all Welsh! I'm the Irish lass in the house! HA! Happy St. Paddy's to you, too!!

Think Julian, Tali and I too answer that question, don't we

Erin goy bra--a few days late and A freilach a Purim

Had to copy that second one from my sister's email--she might be turning me into a temple going Jew with definitive Irish roots

You know I think you're on to something there. I'm Irish (and Italian) and have always felt a kindred spirit with Jewish people.
My son had scarlet fever once. It's a bit scary, but thankfully the antibiotics usually do the trick. Julian, hope you feel better real soon!

I hope no Jewish-Irish lawyers read this post. They might be trebly offended.

Happy St Pat's...um, next year:P
I rather missed it this time around, hm?

I've been away too long. Sorry to hear your boy boy is sick - my eldest had scarlet fever when she was small. It caused blisters on the bottoms of her feet, and a pretty rash as well. Well, hope all is well by now with Julian.

What a funny bunch of comments you got on this post. Sorry I missed the festivities while in Iceland. It was grand. Chicago wasn't too bad either :-D

Though I am an orange wearer, a belated Happy St. Patrick's Day to you too. We've missed you and family.
