St. Patrick's Day

One day a year, Roy Atwell says, he's Irish. This is the day. He sports his Leprechaun hat with a yellow feather on a jaunt through Careytown. I didn't know they made six-foot Leprechauns ... maybe just for the day.

Kristi looks the Irish lass—auburn hair, blue eyes and porcelain complexion—certainly Celtic. She is Welsh, Scots, Native American with just a wee bit o' the Gaelic.

My friend Eloise received this pin as a gift from a boy in grammar school nearly 70 years ago. She doesn't remember the boy, but has always cherished the pin.
