St Paddy's Day in NEW YAWK

Happy Lá 'le Pádraig

We do it big hewe in the big Apple..pawades, fwolicking ,moosic, dwinking, plays, and most hoomans and doggies weaw gween..all of a sudden evewyone is Iwish(even the Empiwe State building is lit up in gween)

Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig oraibh!       
 St Patwick's Day blessings upon you

I decided to join in the Pawade down fifth Avenoo playing the pipes.....I have no idea why evewyone was stawing at me? (I think the othews wewe off tune)

Thewe wewe all sowts of bands(I twied to see Awchie wif his tuba ow accowdion, but couldn't spot him...I guess he stayed in Boston which is mowe Iwish than NewYawk)
I  got a little chilly so I put on my coat as I mawched pwoudly fow my ancestows some of whom came fwom Iweland

a few of my giwlfwiends joined me fow a little Iwish dancing
(holding still wif youw uppew body when you awe a wiggly fuwwykid is most difficult, but we wewe game to twy)
fwom left to wight:Miss Puddles O'Cheeto,Miss Teka O'Twouble,Miss LacieO'Schlag,Miss Fewgie O'Sweetheawt, and Miss Asta O'Smooch

Dancing gives you a big thiwst, so in fine Iwish twadition, we went to one of the fine Iwish Pubs awound Manhattan
"Pionta Guinness, le do thoil." (a pint of guiness pleez)  

I thought of all my absent fwiends all ovew the wowld and ovew the bwidge and got a big teaw in my eye

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
the rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of his hand.

smoochie kisses

Blogger makes me mad. Maybe it has had one too many glasses of that Guinness stuff. (Grrrr) It just ate our little note to you. What we TRIED to say was ...

You've started off our St Patty's Day celebration in such a nice way. (Fergi was thrilled to try her best at a little Irish Jig, and now can't stop talking about wanting to take tap lessons at Uncle Tony's studio.)

That little drink we had made us sleepy ... so we're heading to bed now. But not before wishing you a fun filled Green Leaf Day (that's what OurGirl used to call it). With oat cakes. Lots of them.

Much love
Bruvver Jake and Sissie Fergi (who loved her toe shoes and pretty dress. She felt very special.) xx

What a great parade - seemed like Ireland was in New York right enough - well we had a Guinness .... or two to celebrate in Scotland too.
After that we tried the Irish dancing ................not easy with such short legs although our big paws helped with the tapping!
You and your pals looking great Asta.
Much love

Hey Ms Asta - looks like you had a wonderful day at the parade and I must say - green is your color. I am not sure why but I have been having trouble posting messages on your site - I keep getting a blank screen. This is the first time it has worked in days.

Miss Asta! What a wonderful celebration. You look adorable in your green frock. But do go easy on the beer. You are just a wee thing.
