  1. The Spider is a Wasp Spider. Pity St Paddy didn't rid Ireland of those too (not that they're poisonous).

  2. Beautiful photos, except for the spider. I'm afraid of spiders, although I am learning to live with them, as long as they stay outside:)

  3. Wonderful photos--happy St. Pat's!

  4. That carnival photo is outstanding -- I'd love a copy if you can bear to part with it. I'd like to pin it on my bulletin board behind my desk and look at it every day.

  5. mighty picturesque there T.

    Have you seen the Guinness T.V. advert for St. Patrick's Day? It's available on youtube I think. Very funny.

  6. You were traveling in or had just returned from Ireland, the first day I read your blog. You'd posted photos of an abandoned cottage, looking as though the inhabitants had just walked away leaving nearly everything behind. So belated happy St. Patrick's day and thank you for such an indelible memory of our meeting. xo
