I’m not Irish…

I’m not Irish…

…but Reilly is an Irish wolfhound, and that has to count for something, right? We’ve even brought our dog to be one of the “exhibits” at the Irish faire in Long Beach, California. And tonight, Michelle and I are going to see Flogging Molly, a Celtic-rock band with an Irish (as in, born there, not here) singer, play a St. Patrick’s Day show here in Orange County. And one of my favorite urban fantasy series is the Iron Druid series, about an ancient Irish druid and his trusty Irish wolfhound. So we’re definitely ”Irish friendly.”

Happy St. Paddy’s day to anyone for whom that is a reason to celebrate. And whether it is or isn’t, let’s just take today as another reason to be good to one another. We need as many of those as we can get.

(And yes, the black dog in the picture is Drax, still a puppy at not-quite eleven months old)
