THE IRISH: ST PATRICK’S DAY

leps The Argus (Melbourne, Vic.  1848-1954), Saturday 18 January 1947,

Loosely. I am going to allow myself to simply dig around in the TROVE and the INTERNET ARCHIVE today. Its storming here and they tell me it’s the same in Port Macquarie. We had hail and I wrapped the Charade in Doonahs to protect it. Ah my, St Pat. This is one wild year.

Well that’s pretty dull. Might interest me on another day – but not today. Lets see what I can find that is a bit more IRISH.

    A miscellany of Irish proverbs” to wrap up the day.

  • Four things which an Irishman ought not to trust, — a cow’s horn, a horse’s hoof, a dog’s snarl, and an Englishman’s laugh.
  • Keep hold of the bone and the dog will follow you.
  • There is luck in sharing a thing.
  • See not what you see, and hear not what you hear.

MARCH 17 2011 : Day no 76 : On such a day each road is planned to lead to some enchanted land.

 

WINDSOR 042

“On such a day each road is planned

To lead to some enchanted land;

Each turning meets expectancy.

The signs I read on every hand.

I know by autumn’s wizardry

On such a day the world can be

Only a great glad dream for me.

Only a great glad dream for me!”

Eleanor Myers Jewett, An Autumn Day.

Its one month today since I sat with my sister. I am taking a day of mourning. I might get to some Irish doodads is my mood alters – but for now. sackcloth and ashes.
