Top ‘O The Mornin’ To Ya!


Today is St. Patrick’s Day!

It’s such a fun little “holiday” with everyone wearing green, leprechauns all around, and a festive atmosphere.

And of course, everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day!  🙂

And as I was thinking about it, I remembered a Catholic nun I used to work with.  She sat at the front desk as a volunteer and always greeted everyone with a smile.

On St. Patrick’s Day, she would greet you with, “Top ‘o the mornin’ to ya!”  You’d find yourself reciprocating, and then she’d say, “And the remainder of the day to yerself!”  I loved it.  What a joyful, friendly greeting, putting you at easy and in a good mood all at the same time.

Problems didn’t seem quite so big, life didn’t seem quite so overwhelming, and things seemed to slow down just a bit for a moment as you contemplated that quick bit of banter.  Yes, life was good.

Never Take Your Husband With You To The Caucus!


If you are smart, you will heed my advice:

Never take your husband with you to the Caucus!

No one warned me that this could be a problem.  So very innocently, and unknowingly, I went to my Caucus taking beloved hubby along with me.

Big mistake!

It was bad enough when he “nominated” me to be secretary, and of course all the 30 or so people there almost jumped out of their seats for joy when approving the nomination, just so they wouldn’t have to be stuck doing it.

Next, he nominated me as an alternate delegate.  And once more the crowd fairly leaped in excitement to make it so!

He continued getting me voted in as an alternate for two more rounds – all the way up to State!  Good heavens!  By now the room had become a conglomerate in their eagerness not to be “the one”!

I could barely breathe as they filed, quickly, out of the room and left me behind.  I was so discombobulated I could not figure out the money the delegates had paid, along with the donations, and get the numbers to add up properly!  I am not that bad at math!

Luckily, an accountant had volunteered to be treasurer, so was able to take care of the whole thing.

Like I said:

Never take your husband along with you to the Caucus!  🙂
