I'm looking over...

...a four leaf clover!

And it won't be the last. I have one more shamrock motif saved for tomorrow's offical St. Patrick's Day post.

I'm sure Irish folk who aren't as far removed from the homeland as I am must be horrified by North Americans celebrating their Patron Saint's feast day with mint-flavoured milkshakes, but one of my fondest memories of the day is going to MacDonald's with my Grandma and my sister to have a Shamrock Shake.

Remember those? Cement thick and densely sweet with a toothpaste finish. Delicious when you're 7 and so excited to be out with Grandma having a treat you're sure no one would approve of.

Those were the days.

Hmmm, I might need to make a trip out tomorrow to see if they still make Shamrock Shakes...
