Probably my favorite Irish song of All Time is “Danny Boy.”  Listen to this little fellow sing it on “Britain’s Got Talent.”

Okay, I got all my hair cut off.  For spring?  Well, I told my barber (are they still called that?) to just do to my hair what he wud do to his if he were my age with a graying dome.

Savannah Greening

It seems like yesterday that everywhere I looked I saw this:

But, oh goodness, St. Patrick’s Day in Savannah is nearly here, and that means Spring beauty and green water.  A few pics from my morning constitutional in the historic district:

More St. Patty to follow!

Beyond

Here’s my buddy John Naylor singing “He Looked Beyond My Fault” at yesterday’s Saint Patrick’s Day Service at Asbury Memorial United Methodist Church here in Savannah.  (Notice it is sung to the tune of “Danny Boy.”)

Both “He Looked Beyond My Fault” and “Danny Boy” follow the old melody “Londonderry Air,” an ancient Irish tune.

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!”

2.   Finishing up a great Winter Quarter at SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design).  My two classes:
