The half-Irish in me
Enjoying a local beer & a box of chocolate covered gummy bears (talk about luck; they now come in a convenient candy package) in a comfy reclining chair at the Pickford Theatre.
Bad St. Paddys Day Jokes:
“This is the one day of the year where green’s meaning shifts from saving the environment to polluting our major organs.”
“St. Patricks day is like Valentines day for those who love Jameson (whiskey) and bad decisions.”
“It’s also the one holiday where full-blown alcoholism could possibly go undetected.”
My favourite: “An Irish guy walks out of a bar….No; really, it can happen!”
Green Light Ahead. I’m going for it!
Enjoy the day even if you’re not even part Irish!
It’s Modernism week in Palm SpringsAn annual celebration of midcentury modern design, architecture, art, fashion and culture.
And to demonstrate what kind of 20th Century Modern Woman I am – some recent selfies taken in front of mirrored windows around town. It also proves that my dogs are modern too! They should really be in Modern Dog Magazine.
“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?”

“Where should I go?” -Alice. “That depends on where you want to end up.” – The Cheshire Cat.”!
Hope you end up having a FUN Weekend ahead

People tell me I smile waaay too much! That’s their problem!

Jack’s new holiday sweater. I was in a womans clothing store looking for something for a friend and came home with this sweater for Jack instead. Go figure! It was on sale – one size fits all the label said but somehow I doubt that.
If you want to really feel-good help out a dog in need. Get a rescue! Put a sparkle in his eye.
Wow…can you believe we’re into December already? There’s something festive in the air as we get ready for Christmas and the New Year.
Santa Paws at Tisol, Vancouver. Jia Jia was good all year. Me; not so much!

I love this Phyllis Diller (remember her?) quote. “What I don’t like about office parties is looking for a job the next day.” Good thing I don’t have a job!
Office parties are starting as early as November now as restaurants get booked up fast. I started celebrating
a month ago last night when six on my building council got together for a rowdy celebratory non-silent night for dinner and live jazz. And this time everyone behaved! And there’s only more to follow including back-to-back get togethers with friends and neighbours, dance parties and another fundraising gala (more on that later). Oh, and Stevie Nicks. Okay, it’s not a dinner but she’s amazing…still.
It’s a time to be especially nice to people you otherwise ignore the rest of the year. But all kidding aside, it can be a lonely time too for people without family, or the homeless, etc. And it’s a time to put aside rifts and nonsense and look at the good in people (because nobody is perfect). It’s time to spread the CHEER!
I hope you have a Happy Holiday Season! XO
