I am so blessed to have a fun Irish Family.
I won't bore you with names, but show you a couple of pictures. We had our party in the church hall of one of the oldest churches in Kansas City, Kansas... where they still have a social club AND a bowling alley... and believe me, the younger members of the family put it to good use! The sound of pins falling and balls rolling rang out all afternoon as we ate and visited.
Two of the oldest family members greeting each other in the middle of the mix.
Okay, I lied, I will tell you who these folks are: that's my big brother Mike, his daughter Anita, and her daughter Marlo on the left.
The Guy Who Started it All!
Gosh, what a great time we had!
Then, it was home to these:
Tonight we have had a storm, but it seems to have blown over without too much damage. I'm going to check one more time on the TV to see what we can expect the rest of the night. If you look at the second iris picture above, you will see the potato bed in back of it... the straw that I put on the potatoes last week to cover them as they grew. As of tonight, they are at least 8 inches above the straw!
I'll be putting more down tomorrow.
We gave away bags of lettuce to the concrete guys when they came to get their forms tonight. After waiting for weeks for it, it's coming up faster than we can eat it!
And one more treat for you to start your week off right:
This was waiting for me in the big henhouse tonight.
The Remarkable Mr. T!
