Happy St. Patrick's Day...and Happy Birthday to my Dad

Today would have been my Dad's 86th Birthday.

So close to JMonster's Birthday.

And to the twins, Jewels and RyRy's birthdays.

My Dad was the one who nicknamed me Swizz.  It's short for Swizzle Stix and he would either call me Stix or Swizz depending on the day.

I wish I could have just one more day.

Dad loved that his birthday was on St. Patrick's Day!

He even named my brother Patrick because of it.

Every year he wore his special shamrock bowtie (which my brother now has and wears).

So, in his honor...

Go pinch a loved one if they're not wearing green.

Today would have been my Aunt Patsy's birthday. I don't know how old she would have been, and in any case it's not polite to tell a lady's age. I always felt a special kinship with her because we were both the baby of the family, but she had twice as many brothers and sisters as I do. I have five and she had ten.
