Better late than never! It's 10:00 p.m., four days until St. Patrick's Day. I've been gone all day and am just now getting around to writing my post on day 2 of the 5 day countdown. I'll let you in on a little secret. I have been waiting a couple of years to use this following information, ever since I learned it. There is an old Irish saying; "Top O' the morning to ya". If someone says this to you, the correct response would be; "And the rest of the day to yourself". I guess I haven't had anyone say it to me because I don't know any real Irish people. BUT-I'm still waiting to give the correct response...I can't wait. I have been prepared and will keep it on the tip of my tongue...just in case!
I'm sure everybody knows this is a picture of the Chicago River on St. Patty's Day, they've been dyeing the water since 1962.


  1. Oh wow... this is strange looking! LOL! How long does it stay green? Festive!

  2. It usually stays green for 2 days...but it depends on how many pounds of dye they use.
