A Celtic Christmasing

Celt1

A few nights ago, I (along with six friends) hightailed it over to River Street here in Savannah to Kevin Barry’s Pub for their annual Celtic Christmas Concert.  (I stumbled upon the concert by accident in 2012 and simply HAD to return this year.)

The trio of performers included the talented Harry O’Donoghue, Michael Murray and Carroll Brown.

I love this music, but it always gets me a little teary-eyed.

Five Friday Happy Bringers (3/15/13)

Top of the Friday morning, to you. Here are Five Friday Bringers of Happiness:

1. This cool pic of blooming almond trees in California sent by my new buddy Don Simmons. Don is good friends with Rick and Linda, the couple who moved to Savannah from Wisconsin. One fabulous day they gave me the tour of the “Joy in their own back yard”.  Here’s what Don said in his accompanying email:  “Since you mentioned almonds in one of your post, as something that brings you joy–I wanted to send you one of the great views that I have here in California’s San Joaquin Valley, where most of the world’s almonds are grown–it’s time for our ‘blossom trail’ and the almonds are certainly giving us a beautiful show–as well as the Sierras!”
