    St. Patrick's day to everyone...and cheers to the corned beef and cabbage I made yesterday that came out great...being an atheist but of Irish descent, I am a little conflicted about celebrating a religious holiday but any excuse to have a beer with friends is a good thing...

    Cheers to my oldest son calling Saturday to tell me of his impending wedding....no pomp or circumstance...just in front of a judge in NYC this week....would love to be there but finances won't allow it....just happy he is finally happy....and that makes three boys getting married this year...

    One last cheer to making it through another weekend....not an easy one....

    "...and when the next day's sun is rising, and reason substitutes for pain, I will finally find my way home, to start to live my life again..."

    •  Congrats, jadevol, (7+ / 0-)

      and may your week improve upon your weekend.

      The missus and I married with the minister (a schoolmate of mine), her parents, my parents, maid of honor and hubby, best man and wifey & a photographer.
      When we bought our second home years later, we had to borrow money for all the appliances from her dad, who then sent out a card to us telling us the appliances were on him, loan forgiven. When I thanked him in person, he smiled and said, "You two saved me a bundle on your wedding. I figure I made out very nicely."
      Had my wife wanted it, he would have mortgaged himself to the end of time to give her what she wanted. But one of the many ways my wife expressed her love for her Dad was to never ask for anything she didn't absolutely need, unlike one of her sisters, who borrowed ten grand for a septic system and then bought a boat.
