The Emerald Isle

We just returned from a two-week stay in Ireland.  I’m blessed with some Irish roots myself, so the experience was gratifying on a number of levels.  First and foremost, the land itself is absolutely magical!  I was determined to bring home a fabulous souvenir, so I devoted a good deal of time to the acquisition of something suitable.  During our time on the coast of Northern Ireland, I was able to capture several starfish, two very personable leprechauns, and a dandy mermaid. Sadly, I was forced to leave the entire menagerie behind.  The starfish became unmanageably odiferous!  The leprechauns ransacked my luggage and raised such a ruckus at the hotel that I was forced to ask them to leave, and Robin informed me I wouldn’t be keeping the mermaid.
