"Happy Birthday Trishy!"

Today is St. Patrick's Day, the patron saint of Ireland....I married an English "Russell" but I remain an Irish girl at heart! My maiden name is "O'Driscoll" and my father's father was born in County Cork. Now there is a story in our family that an ancestor of ours, Sir Fineen O'Driscoll fought Oliver Cromwell back in 1649 or thereabouts as he tried to conquer Ireland.... However today is more important because it is my sister's birthday and of course she had to be called "Patricia" so Trishy this is to wish you a beautiful birthday and I wish I was there to celebrate with you.
